What's going on at the beginning of Al Azhar? It looks like the 'l' has BOTH a "a" mark (diacritic fatḥah ⟨فَتْحَة⟩) and also the little circle for no vowel (diacritic sukūn ⟨سُكُون⟩). Am I seeing things?

Here's a little about the university with the mosque (by the same name) and down the hill from the park (also by the same name) where one can visit the picturesque Citadel: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Al-Azhar_University
