Quote:
{18:32} And present to them an example of two men: We granted to one of them two gardens of grapevines, and We bordered them with palm trees and placed between them [fields of] crops.

I suggest,
{18:32} And strike for them the parable of two men: We set for one of them two gardens of grapevines, and We hedged them with palm trees and set between the two of them plantation.

Quote:
{18:33} Each of the two gardens produced its fruit and did not fall short thereof in anything. And We caused to gush forth within them a river.

I suggest,
{18:33} Each of the two gardens produced its esculents and did not wrong from it (fall short) a bit. And We caused to gush within them a stream.

Quote:
{18:34} And he had fruit, so he said to his companion while he was conversing with him, "I am greater than you in wealth and mightier in [numbers of] men."

I suggest,
{18:34} And he had fruit, so he said to his fellow while he was debating with him, "I am greater than you in property and mightier in man-power."

Quote:
{18:35} And he entered his garden while he was unjust to himself. He said, "I do not think that this will perish - ever.

I suggest,
{18:35} And he entered his garden, being wrong to himself; he said, "I do not think that this may perish - ever."

Quote:
{18:36} "And I do not think the Hour will occur. And even if I should be brought back to my Lord, I will surely find better than this as a return."

I suggest,
{18:36} "And I do not think that the Hour is rising. And surely if I should be returned to my Lord, I will surely find better than it as a recourse."
