There are two ways of writing the Arabic language with vowel (tashkeel) or without vowels.
Religious texts (the Qur’an and Hadith) are always written with vowels. This is to ensure that non-Arabic speakers reading the text will not mispronounce words thereby altering the meaning. Children’s school book are also written in this way.
Virtually, all other texts are written unvowelled and require the reader to apply the correct vowel markers and grammatical endings.
