Quote:
{57:13} On the [same] Day the hypocrite men and hypocrite women will say to those who believed, "Wait for us that we may acquire some of your light." It will be said, "Go back behind you and seek light." And a wall will be placed between them with a door, its interior containing mercy, but on the outside of it is torment.

I suggest,
{57:13} The Day say the hypocrite men and the hypocrite women to those who have believed, "Await us so that we may partake of your light." It will be said, "Go back behind you and grope for a light." Then struck between them will be a fence having a door the inside of which therein is mercy and its outside in front thereof is torment.

Quote:
{57:14} The hypocrites will call to the believers, "Were we not with you?" They will say, "Yes, but you afflicted yourselves and awaited [misfortune for us] and doubted, and wishful thinking deluded you until there came the command of God. And the Deceiver deceived you concerning God."

I suggest,
{57:14} They (the hypocrites) will call to them (the believers), "Were we not with you?" They will say, "Yes, but you tempted yourselves and scoped and doubted, and wishes deluded you until there came the command of God. And the deluder deluded you about God."

Quote:
{57:15} So today no ransom will be taken from you or from those who disbelieved. Your refuge is the Fire. It is most worthy of you, and wretched is the destination.

I suggest,
{57:15} So, today no ransom will be taken from you or from those who have disbelieved. Your refuge is the Fire; it is your protector! How wretched the destination!
