{44:34} Actually, these [disbelievers] do say,

Quote:
{44:35} "There is not but our first death, and we will not be resurrected.

I suggest,
{44:35} "It is but our first death, and we are not to be raised [from dead]."

Quote:
{44:36} Then bring [back] our forefathers, if you should be truthful."

Excellent translation, except I'd start it with a quote, to ensure that the reader knows it is a quote and not something God said,
{44:36} "Then bring [back] our forefathers, if you should be truthful."

Quote:
{44:37} Are they better or the people of Tubba` and those before them? We destroyed them, [for] indeed, they were criminals.

I suggest,
{44:37} Are they better or the people of Tubba` and those before them? We destroyed them; verily, they were criminals.
