  3. End verse:

    If you want to view a verse range in a particular chapter, then type the chapter number in the top box and the number of the first verse in the verse range in the box above and the last verse of the verse range in this box. This is an optional field.

      If the ‘Highlight search term(s)’ option is switched on in ‘Step 1’, then the search results will show the verses in Arabic with and without vowels. The latter format will show the highlighted term(s) from your search query.
