Do you mean that it’s rectangular and not curved or tapered? Or the fact that it’s separated from the word “Islam”?
For the former: It’s not the default form included in the font. However, Harbour Bold’s original apostrophe is a parallelogram, too. Chunky, yes, but it goes well with the overall style of the typeface design. I’d argue that you have more leeway in a logo. The designers of H8 definitely put effort into the details – they decreased the size of the top right serif in L, so that the apostrophe has more space – which suggests that this isn’t an accident, but very much intentional. I can see how a rectangular shape might echo the general motif of squares, and the four framing squares in particular. Maybe they should have gone all in, and used a perfect rotated square (diamond), or a triangle, for a truly stylized solution. There are more modifications: the base of the second L was made less wide, to accommodate to the subsequent A. In M, the center vertex was moved to the left, and the top left enlongated. The bottom of the counter in R got straightened out.
Furthermore, the S got less flat terminals, and the roof of T is wider and heavier. Here’s a quick resetting in Harbour Bold, with adjusted spacing.
