Quote:
{7:40} Indeed, those who deny Our verses and are arrogant toward them - the gates of Heaven will not be opened for them, nor will they enter Paradise until a camel enters into the eye of a needle. And thus do We recompense the criminals.

I suggest,
{7:40} Verily, those who have belied Our signs and deemed themselves [too] big for them - the gates of the sky are not dehisced for them, nor do they enter the Garden until the camel steps into the eyehole of the knitting needle. And thus We recompense the criminals.

Quote:
{7:41} They will have from Hell a bed and over them coverings [of fire]. And thus do We recompense the wrongdoers.

I suggest,
{7:41} For them out of Gehenna (Hell) is a cradle, and above them lids. And thus We recompense the wrongdoers.
