Quote:
{12:87} O my sons, go and find out about Joseph and his brother and despair not of relief from God. Indeed, no one despairs of relief from God except the disbelieving people."

I suggest,
{12:87} "O my sons, go and feel out for Joseph and his brother and do not despair of relief from God. Indeed, no one despairs of relief from God except the disbelieving folk."

Quote:
{12:88} So when they entered upon Joseph, they said, "O Azeez, adversity has touched us and our family, and we have come with goods poor in quality, but give us full measure and be charitable to us. Indeed, God rewards the charitable."

I suggest,
{12:88} So when they entered upon Joseph, they said, "O Nobleman, adversity has touched us and our family, and we have come with scanty goods, but give us full measure and be charitable to us. Indeed, God rewards the charitable."
