{17:61} And [mention] when We said to the angles, "Prostrate to Adam," and they prostrated, except for Iblees. He said, "Should I prostrate to one You created from clay?"

I suggest,
{17:61} And [mention] when We said to the angels, "Prostrate to Adam," and they prostrated, but not Iblees; he said, "[How can] I prostrate to what You created [from] clay?"

Quote:
{17:62} [Iblees] said, "Do You see this one whom You have honored above me? If You delay me until the Day of Resurrection, I will surely destroy his descendants, except for a few."

I suggest,
{17:62} [Ibless said], "Do You see this one whom You honored above me? If You delay me until the Day of Resurrection, I will surely temper his descendants, except a few."

Quote:
{17:65} Indeed, over My [believing] servants there is for you no authority. And sufficient is your Lord as Disposer of affairs.

I suggest,
{17:65} Verily, over My worshipers you have no authority. And sufficient is your Lord a Trustee.
