Quote:
{15:26} And We did certainly create man out of clay from an altered black mud.

I suggest,
{15:26} And We did create man out of clay out of transmuted mud.

Quote:
{15:27} And the jinn We created before from scorching fire.

I suggest,
{15:27} And the sprites We created before from the fire of the scorching wind.

Quote:
{15:28} And [mention, O Muhammad], when your Lord said to the angels, "I will create a human being out of clay from an altered black mud.

To be consistent with my suggestion for 15:26, I suggest,
{15:28} And [mention, O Muhammad,] when your Lord said to the angels, "I am creating a human being out of clay out of transmuted mud."

Quote:
{15:29} And when I have proportioned him and breathed into him of My [created] soul, then fall down to him in prostration."

I suggest,
{15:29} "And when I have proportioned him and breathed into him of My spirit, then drop down, to him prostrating."
