{5:87} O you who have believed, do not prohibit the good things which God has made lawful to you and do not transgress. Indeed, God does not like transgressors.

Just a quick remark that this verse seems to be addressing the extremists on the two key issues that they have.

I suggest,
{5:87} O you who have believed, do not prohibit what is wholesome of what God has allowed for you and do not transgress. Verily, God does not like transgressors.

Quote:
{5:88} And eat of what God has provided for you [which is] lawful and good. And fear God, in whom you are believers.

I suggest,
{5:88} And eat of what God has provided you [which is] lawful and wholesome. And watch out for God, in whom you are believers.
