Quote:
{6:17} And if God should touch you with adversity, there is no remover of it except Him. And if He touches you with good - then He is over all things competent.

The italicized word should be "He." Again, "competent" understates the Arabic word; "Powerful" is more like it.

I suggest,
{6:17} And if God should touch you with adversity, there is no unveiling of it except He. And if He touches you with good - then He is over everything Powerful.

Quote:
{6:18} And He is the subjugator over His servants. And He is the Wise, the Acquainted [with all].

I suggest,
{6:18} And He is the Overpowering One over His worshipers. And He is the Wise, the Dexterous.
