Quote:
{16:80} And God has made for you from your homes a place of rest and made for you from the hides of the animals tents which you find light on your day of travel and your day of encampment; and from their wool, fur and hair is furnishing and enjoyment for a time.

I suggest,
{16:80} And God has made for you from your homes a repose and made for you from the skins of livestock homes [which] you find light on your day of transit and your day of stay; and from their wool, fur and hair is furnishing and convenience for a while.

Quote:
{16:81} And God has made for you, from that which He has created, shadows and has made for you from the mountains, shelters and has made for you garments which protect you from the heat and garments which protect you from your [enemy in] battle. Thus does He complete His favor upon you that you might submit [to Him].

I suggest,
{16:81} And God has made for you, from what He has created, shadings and has made for you from the mountains nestles and has made for you apparels to protect you from the heat and apparels to protect you from your violence. Thus does He complete His favor upon you that you might submit [to Him].
