{4:53} Or have they a share of dominion? Then [if that were so], they would not give the people [even as much as] the speck on a date seed.

I suggest,
{4:53} Or is for them a share of the dominion? Then if so, they would not grant the people a speck on a date pit.

Quote:
{4:54} Or do they envy people for what God has given them of His bounty? But we had already given the family of Abraham the Scripture and wisdom and conferred upon them a great kingdom.

I suggest,
{4:54} Or do they envy people for what God has granted them of His bounty? But We had already granted the family of Abraham the Book and wisdom and granted them a great dominion.

Quote:
{4:55} And some among them believed in it, and some among them were averse to it. And sufficient is Hell as a blaze.

"Were averse to it" is passive, while صد عنه is active. Sarwar got that.

I suggest,
{4:55} And among them are some who believed in it, and among them are some who shunned from it. And sufficed Gehenna (Hell) a blaze.
