Quote:
{7:34} And for every nation is a [specified] term. So when their time has come, they will not remain behind an hour, nor will they precede [it].

I suggest,
{7:34} And for every community is a term. Then when their time has arrived, they do not ask for a delay of an hour (such request will be refused), nor do they ask to precede [it].

Quote:
{7:35} O children of Adam, if there come to you messengers from among you relating to you My verses, then whoever fears God and reforms - there will be no fear concerning them, nor will they grieve.

The Arabic uses an emphatic conjugation (توكيد) to state that there will come messengers. Therefore, I suggest,

{7:35} O children of Adam, if there should certainly come to you envoys from among you relating to you My verses, then whoever has watched out [for God] and reformed - then no fear shall be upon them, nor shall they grieve.

Quote:
{7:36} But the ones who deny Our verses and are arrogant toward them - those are the companions of the Fire; they will abide therein eternally.

I suggest,
{7:36} But the ones who have belied Our signs and deemed themselves [too] big for them - then those are the inmates of the Fire; they therein are lasting.
