Quote:
{57:10} And why do you not spend in the cause of God while to God belongs the heritage of the heavens and the earth? Not equal among you are those who spent before the conquest [of Makkah] and fought [and those who did so after it]. Those are greater in degree than they who spent afterwards and fought. But to all God has promised the best [reward]. And God, with what you do, is Acquainted.

I suggest,
{57:10} And how come you do not spend in the cause of God while to God belongs the estate of the heavens and the earth? They do not equate among you: those who spent before the triumph (conquest of Mecca) and fought; those are greater in rank than they who spent afterwards and fought. But to all God has promised the best [reward]. And God, of what you do, is All-Aware.

Quote:
{57:11} Who is it that would loan God a goodly loan so He will multiply it for him and he will have a noble reward?

I suggest,
{57:11} Who is out there who would loan God a goodly loan so He will multiply it for him and for him is a noble reward?

Quote:
{57:12} On the Day you see the believing men and believing women, their light proceeding before them and on their right, [it will be said], "Your good tidings today are [of] gardens beneath which rivers flow, wherein you will abide eternally." That is what is the great attainment.

I suggest,
{57:12} [On] the Day you see the believing men and the believing women, their light proceeding between their hands and by their right sides, [it will be said], "Your glad tidings today are [of] gardens flowing beneath which are rivers, staying eternally therein." It is that which is the grand win.
