Yes, you can write names of Allah, without diacritics. Diacritics are mostly to help Non-Arabs to read Arabic texts.


Diacritics in Arabic:

Hamza - indicates glottal stop.

Tanwin - plays grammatical role.

Shadda - doubles consonant.

Wasla & Madda - Hamza related, look for Hamza in wikipedia.

Short Alif - Used instead of dropped Alif in writing.

Harakat or Tashkil - Vowel sound indicators.

  • Fatha : /a/

  • Kasra : /i/

  • Damma : /u/

  • Sukun : No vowel sound.


Word "Allah" contains of 4 letters: Alif+Lam+Lam+Ha. The diacritics in standard writing: Fatha on Alif, Shadda on second Lam, and Short Alif on Shadda, and Damma on Ha.
