I have seen the word وليتلطف in Surah Kahaf in the Quran written in bold text.
I want to know:
- The reason why this word is in bold?
- What is the meaning of this word according to Tafseer or Ahaadith?

Scholar Mohamed Altahir Bin Ashoor, in his tafseer for the Quran
التحرير والتنوير consider it to be the word of half of the Quran.
Same person also - by logical inheritance, that the
ت in it, is the letter middle of the Quran (since it is the middle of that word).
However, that opinion is not shared by all, as in Tafseer Ibn Atia
ابن عطية claims that Alnawawi claims that the middle of the Quran is the word:
in the same Surah Ayah 74.
This could also be effected by many scholars who consider the
بسم الله الرحمان الرحيم to be an Ayah for the Fatiha while many others don't, that calculations into consideration.
It is considered to be the middle most word of the Quran.
It is reported to be the central word of the Holy Quran
