Quote:
{24:51} The only statement of the [true] believers when they are called to God and His Messenger to judge between them is that they say, "We hear and we obey." And those are the successful.

I suggest,
{24:51} Verily, the saying of the believers when they are called to God and His Messenger to judge between them is to say, "We heard and we obey." And those are the prosperous.

Quote:
{24:52} And whoever obeys God and His Messenger and fears God and is conscious of Him - it is those who are the attainers.

I suggest,
{24:52} And whoever obeys God and His Messenger and fears God and watches out for Him - it is those who are the winners.

This verse is proof that تقوى does not mean fear of God, as it is commonly translated, since God mentions fear of him right before it.
