{4:7} For men is a share of what the parents and close relatives leave, and for women is a share of what the parents and close relatives leave, be it little or much - an obligatory share.

I suggest,
{4:7} For men is a share of what the two parents and the closest relatives have left, and for women is a share of what the two parents and the closest relatives have left, be it little or much - a mandated share.

Quote:
{4:8} And when [other] relatives and orphans and the needy are present at the [time of] division, then provide for them [something] out of the estate and speak to them words of appropriate kindness.

I suggest,
{4:8} And when have attended the division [of an estate] [other] relatives, orphans and the poor, then provide for them [something] out of it and say to them a decent uttering.
