Quote:
{18:37} His companion said to him while he was conversing with him, "Have you disbelieved in He who created you from dust and then from a sperm-drop and then proportioned you [as] a man?

I suggest,
{18:37} His fellow said to him as he was debating him, "Have you disbelieved in Him who created you from dust then from a droplet then proportioned you a man?"

Quote:
{18:38} But as for me, He is God, my Lord, and I do not associate with my Lord anyone.

I suggest,
{18:39} "But He is God, my Lord, and I do not associate with my Lord anyone [in worship]."

Quote:
{18:39} And why did you, when you entered your garden, not say, 'What God willed [has occurred]; there is no power except in God'? Although you see me less than you in wealth and children,

I suggest,
{18:39} "And if only, when you entered your garden, you had said: [This is] what God willed; there is no strength except with God. If you see me less than you in property and children,"

Quote:
{18:40} It may be that my Lord will give me [something] better than your garden and will send upon it a calamity from the sky, and it will become a smooth, dusty ground,

I suggest,
{18:40} "Then perhaps my Lord will give me [something] better than your garden, and send upon it a reckoning from the sky such that it will meet the morning (become) a slippery plain."
