Quote:
{12:67} And he said, "O my sons, do not enter from one gate but enter from different gates; and I cannot avail you against [the decree of] God at all. The decision is only for God; upon Him I have relied, and upon Him let those who would rely [indeed] rely."

I suggest,
{12:67} And he said, "O my sons, do not enter from one gate but enter from different gates; and I cannot avail you against [the decree of] God at all. Judgment belongs only to God; upon Him I have relied, and upon Him should rely the reliant."

I suggest "separate gates"
