Quote:
{26:185} They said, "You are only of those affected by magic.

I suggest,
{26:185} They said, "You surely are of the illusioned."

Quote:
{26:186} You are but a man like ourselves, and indeed, we think you are among the liars.

I suggest,
{26:186} "You are but a human like us, and indeed, we think you are of the liars."

Quote:
{26:187} So cause to fall upon us fragments of the sky, if you should be of the truthful."

I suggest,
{26:187} "So, drop upon us fragments of the sky, if you have been of the truthful."

Quote:
{26:188} He said, "My Lord is most knowing of what you do."

I suggest,
{26:188} He said, "My Lord knows better what you do."

Quote:
{26:189} And they denied him, so the punishment of the day of the black cloud seized them. Indeed, it was the punishment of a terrible day.

I suggest,
{26:189} So, they denied him, therefore seized them the torment of the day of gloom; it was a torment of a tremendous day.

Quote:
{26:190} Indeed in that is a sign, but most of them were not to be believers.
{26:191} And indeed, your Lord - He is the Exalted in Might, the Merciful.

I suggest, as before,
{26:190} Indeed, in that is a sign, but most of them have not been believers.
{26:191} And verily, [it is] your Lord [who] is the Exalted in Might, the Merciful.
