I suggest,
{61:11} [It is that] you believe in God and His Messenger and strive in the cause of God with your wealth and your selves. That is good for you, if you should know.

Quote:
{61:12} He will forgive for you your sins and admit you to gardens beneath which rivers flow and pleasant dwellings in gardens of perpetual residence. That is the great attainment.

I suggest,
{61:12} He will [then] forgive for you your sins and admit you to gardens flowing beneath which are rivers, and virtuous dwellings in the Gardens of Eden (perpetual bliss). That is the great win.

Quote:
{61:13} And [you will obtain] another [favor] that you love - victory from God and an imminent conquest; and give good tidings to the believers.

I suggest,
{61:13} And another [favor] that you love - help from God and an imminent opening (triumph); and herald glad tidings to the believers.
