{16:74} So do not assert similarities to God. Indeed, God knows and you do not know.

I suggest,
{16:74} So do not strike to God parables. Verily, God knows and you do not know.

Quote:
{16:75} God presents an example: a slave [who is] owned and unable to do a thing and he to whom We have provided from Us good provision, so he spends from it secretly and publicly. Can they be equal? Praise to God! But most of them do not know.

I suggest,
{16:75} God has struck a parable: an owned slave [who] does not have power over anything and one whom We have provided from Us good provision, so he spends from it secretly and publicly. Do they equate? Praise is to God! But most of them do not know.

Quote:
{16:76} And God presents an example of two men, one of them dumb and unable to do a thing, while he is a burden to his guardian. Wherever he directs him, he brings no good. Is he equal to one who commands justice, while he is on a straight path?

I suggest,
{16:76} And God has struck a parable: Two men, one of them dumb, does not have power over anything and is a burden to his master - wherever he directs him, he does not bring any good. Does he equate with one who commands justice, while he is on a straight path?
