Quote:
{39:71} And those who disbelieved will be driven to Hell in groups until, when they reach it, its gates are opened and its keepers will say, "Did there not come to you messengers from yourselves, reciting to you the verses of your Lord and warning you of the meeting of this Day of yours?" They will say, "Yes, but the word of punishment has come into effect upon the disbelievers.

I suggest,
{39:71} And those who disbelieved will be led to Gehenna (Hell) in hordes until, when they get to it, its gates are opened and its keepers will say to them, "Did there not come to you messengers from [among] yourselves, reciting to you the verses of your Lord and warning you of the meeting of this Day of yours?" They will say, "Yea, but the word of torment has come true upon the disbelievers.

Quote:
{39:72} [To them] it will be said, "Enter the gates of Hell to abide eternally therein, and wretched is the residence of the arrogant."

I suggest,
{39:72} It will be said [to them], "Enter the gates of Gehenna (Hell), staying eternally therein. Thus, how wretched is the abode of the arrogant!"
