Quote:
{17:23} And your Lord has decreed that you not worship except Him, and to parents, good treatment. Whether one or both of them reach old age [while] with you, say not to them [so much as], "uff [uttering of impatience]," and do not repel them but speak to them a noble word.

I suggest,
{17:23} And your Lord has decreed that you not worship except Him; and to parents, benefaction. Should one of them or both of them reach old age [while] with you, then do not say to them, "uff" (indicating impatience), nor chide them but say to them noble uttering.

Quote:
{17:24} And lower to them the wing of humility out of mercy and say, "My Lord, have mercy upon them as they brought me up [when I was] small."

I suggest,
{17:24} And lower to them the wing of humility out of mercy and say, "Lord, be merciful with them as they bred me [when I was] young."
