3Arbia/ Arabic is written differently depending on who is doing the script, for instance you would read doin and doing or dont and don't the same but their slightly different. Arabic has a set of shot vowel symbols that go around words changing how they are pronounced. Sometimes they are omitted, and sometimes more/different ones are used for poetic purposes such as in the Quran or Bible. ( there are arabic christians, I am one of them, we also use the term Allaah for God.)

Also, Arabic calligraphers will change the shape of words and letters for artistic purposes. Such as how different fonts change English words but in Arabic its to a more fluid and larger extent. Some calligraphy I can take me quite awhile to read and sometimes I can't decipher them at all! (I can read and write most Arabic)

That about sums it up, some people make it more artistic and flourishing than others and like all languages different regions use words for different meanings than others and some even have different spellings (like the difference between 'American-English' and 'English-English'). One of those appears to be a more modern representation (simple) while the other is more traditional (complex).

Firstly, the blue screen image lacks short vowels (there is no damma, the short uuu sound at the end of Allahu). However they both have shadda and dagger alif (the "w" looking thing and the vertical line). The last difference is that the older looking text is of a more Kufan or classic Quranic script. A lot of those markings surrounding the word "Allah" are simply there for beautification.

Any questions?

Also, keep in mind that God in Islam got has 99 names. There are many many symbols for Him.

I wouldnt say "symbols". These are just words. They dont represent God or Allah in anyway. Theyre just the same ideas writin in a different way.
