Enlarged Arabic in Surah 18.

Q. I have noticed that in Surah 18 The Cave – in the 18th ayah, there is an area where the arabic is enlarged and in some cases a different color. The arabic transliterarion is (wal yata lat-taf). I have heard in the past that one should make dua when you reach that part. Can you tell me what that area is for?

A. This word in Sura Al Kahf (The Cave), ‘Wal Yata Lattaf’ is the middle of the Holy Quran with respect to words. As such, it is highlighted in a manner that it is differentiated from the other words. There are no virtues regarding the word about making dua etc.

And Allah knows best.
