Quote:
{11:56} Indeed, I have relied upon God, my Lord and your Lord. There is no creature but that He holds its forelock. Indeed, my Lord is on a path [that is] straight."

I suggest,
{11:56} "Verily, I have relied upon God, my Lord and your Lord. There is no beast but that He holds its forelock. Verily, my Lord is on a straight path."

Quote:
{11:57} But if they turn away, [say], "I have already conveyed that with which I was sent to you. My Lord will give succession to a people other than you, and you will not harm Him at all. Indeed my Lord is, over all things, Guardian."

I suggest,
{11:57} But if they turn away, [say], "I have already conveyed what I was sent with to you. My Lord [may] give succession to a people other than you, and you do not harm Him at all. Verily, my Lord , over everything, is Keeper."

Quote:
{11:58} And when Our command came, We saved Hud and those who believed with him, by mercy from Us; and We saved them from a harsh punishment.

I suggest,
{11:58} And when Our command came, We saved Huud (Eber) and those who believed with him, by mercy from Us; and We saved them from a boorish torment.
