Quote:
{5:119} God will say, "This is the Day when the truthful will benefit from their truthfulness." For them are gardens [in Paradise] beneath which rivers flow, wherein they will abide forever, God being pleased with them, and they with Him. That is the great attainment.

I suggest,
{5:119} Said God, "This is the Day when benefits the truthful their truthfulness." For them are Gardens flowing beneath which are rivers, lasting therein forever. God has been pleased with them, and they have been pleased with Him. That is the grand win.

Quote:
{5:120} To God belongs the dominion of the heavens and the earth and whatever is within them. And He is over all things competent.

Good translation, except for "Competent" which falls way short. I suggest, "powerful."

I suggest,
{5:120} To God belongs the dominion of the heavens and the earth and whatever is within them. And He is over everything Powerful.
