{3:190} Indeed, in the creation of the heavens and the earth and the alternation of the night and the day are signs for those of understanding.

I suggest,
{3:190} Verily, in the creation of the heavens and the earth and the alternation of the night and the day surely are signs for those with intellects -

Quote:
{3:191} Who remember God while standing or sitting or [lying] on their sides and give thought to the creation of the heavens and the earth, [saying], "Our Lord, You did not create this aimlessly; exalted are You [above such a thing]; then protect us from the punishment of the Fire.

I suggest,
{3:191} Who remember God while standing, sitting or [lying] on their sides and reflect on the creation of the heavens and the earth, [saying], "Our Lord, You did not create this in vain; sanctified are You! So, shield us from the torment of the Fire."

Quote:
{3:192} Our Lord, indeed whoever You admit to the Fire - You have disgraced him, and for the wrongdoers there are no helpers.

I suggest,
{3:192} "Our Lord, verily, whoever You admit to the Fire - then You have certainly disgraced him, and there are not for the wrongdoers any helpers."

Quote:
{3:193} Our Lord, indeed we have heard a caller calling to faith, [saying], 'Believe in your Lord,' and we have believed. Our Lord, so forgive us our sins and remove from us our misdeeds and cause us to die with the righteous.

I suggest,
{3:193} "Our Lord, verily we heard a caller call to faith, [saying], 'Believe in your Lord,' and we have believed. Our Lord, so forgive us our sins and expiate away from us our misdeeds and recall us [to death] with the goodly."

Quote:
{3:194} Our Lord, and grant us what You promised us through Your messengers and do not disgrace us on the Day of Resurrection. Indeed, You do not fail in [Your] promise."

I suggest,
{3:194} "Our Lord, and grant us what You promised us through Your messengers and do not disgrace us on the Day of Resurrection. Verily, You do not fail [Your] promise."
