Quote:
{16:106} Whoever disbelieves in God after his belief... except for one who is forced [to renounce his religion] while his heart is secure in faith. But those who [willingly] open their breasts to disbelief, upon them is wrath from God, and for them is a great punishment;

I suggest,
{16:106} Whoever has disbelieved in God after his belief - except for one who is forced while his heart is tranquil with faith - but for one who opened wide with disbelief a bosom, then upon them is wrath from God, and for them is a tremendous torment.

Quote:
{16:107} That is because they preferred the worldly life over the Hereafter and that God does not guide the disbelieving people.

I suggest,
{16:107} That is because they loved more [this] the nearest life over the Hereafter and that God does not guide the disbelieving folk.

Quote:
{16:108} Those are the ones over whose hearts and hearing and vision God has sealed, and it is those who are the heedless.

I suggest,
{16:108} Those are the ones whom God stamped over their hearts, their hearing and their sights, and it is those who are the heedless.

Quote:
{16:109} Assuredly, it is they, in the Hereafter, who will be the losers.

I suggest,
{16:109} No surprise that, in the Hereafter, they are the losers.
