Quote:
{42:29} And of his signs is the creation of the heavens and earth and what He has dispersed throughout them of creatures. And He, for gathering them when He wills, is competent.

I suggest,
{42:29} And of His signs is the creation of the heavens and the earth and what He has pervaded throughout them of moving creature. And He, of gathering them when He wills, is quite Capable.

Quote:
{42:30} And whatever strikes you of disaster - it is for what your hands have earned; but He pardons much.

Excellent translation, but I'd use "hit" instead of "strike." I suggest,
{42:30} And whatever hits you of disaster - it is for what your hands have earned; but He pardons much.

Quote:
{42:31} And you will not cause failure [to God] upon the earth. And you have not besides God any protector or helper.

I suggest,
{42:31} And you are not in the least overpowering [God] in the land. And you have not besides God any ally nor helper.
