{17:1} Exalted is He who took His Servant by night from al-Masjid al-Haram to al-Masjid al-Aqsa, whose surroundings We have blessed, to show him of Our signs. Indeed, He is the Hearing, the Seeing.

I suggest,
{17:1} Sanctified is He who took His worshiper traveling at night from the Sacrosanct Mosque to Al-Aqsa (the Farthest) Mosque, whose surroundings We have blessed, to show him of Our Signs. Verily, He is the All-Hearing, the All-Seeing.

Quote:

{17:2} And We gave Moses the Book and made it guidance for the Children of Israel that you do not take other than Me as Trustee.

Quote:

I suggest,
{17:3} Offspring of those whom We carried [in the Ark] with Noah. Indeed, he was a thankful worshiper.
