Quote:
{43:15} But they have attributed to Him from His servants a portion. Indeed, man is clearly ungrateful.

I suggest,
{43:15} And they attributed to Him from His worshipers a portion! Verily, man surely is clearly ungrateful.

Quote:
{43:16} Or has He taken, out of what He has created, daughters and chosen you for [having] sons?

I suggest,
{43:16} Or has He taken for Himself, out of what He creates, daughters and privileged you with sons?

Quote:
{43:17} And when one of them is given good tidings of that which he attributes to the Beneficent in comparison, his face becomes dark, and he suppresses grief.

I suggest,
{43:17} And when one of them is given glad tidings (a daughter) of the example which he struck for the Beneficent, his face remains darkened, and he is muzzling [his disappointment]!

Quote:
{43:18} So is one brought up in ornaments while being during conflict unevident [attributed to God]?

I suggest,
{43:18} And, is one brought up in trinket and in a dispute is other than articulate [attributed to God]?!

Quote:
{43:19} And they have made the angels, who are servants of the Beneficent, females. Did they witness their creation? Their testimony will be recorded, and they will be questioned.

I suggest,
{43:19} And they have made the angels, who are worshipers of the Beneficent, females! Did they witness their creation? Their testimony will be written, and they will be questioned.

Quote:
{43:20} And they said, "If the Beneficent had willed, we would not have worshipped them." They have of that no knowledge. They are not but falsifying.

I suggest,
{43:20} And they said, "If the Beneficent had willed, we would not have worshiped them." They have of that no knowledge. They are but conjecturing.
