{10:107} And if God should touch you with adversity, there is no remover of it except Him; and if He intends for you good, then there is no repeller of His bounty. He causes it to reach whom He wills of His servants. And He is the Forgiving, the Merciful

This beautiful verse is one of seven which have been called "the seven saving verses."

I suggest this slight edit,
{10:107} And if God should touch you with adversity, there is no remover of it except He; and if He intends for you good, then there is no repeller of His bounty. He causes it to reach whom He wills of His worshipers. And He is the oft Forgiving, the Merciful

Quote:
{10:108} Say, "O mankind, the truth has come to you from your Lord, so whoever is guided is only guided for [the benefit of] his soul, and whoever goes astray only goes astray [in violation] against it. And I am not over you a manager."

I suggest,
{10:108} Say, "O people, the truth has come to you from your Lord, so whoever found guidance has found guidance for [the benefit of] his soul, and whoever lost his way has lost to [the detriment of] it. And I am not over you a manager."
