Quote:
{7:1} Alif, Lam, Meem, Sad.

I'd spell ص "Saad" to differentiate it from the English adjective. I'd also spell "Lam" as "Laam" to emphasize the long vowel. So, I suggest,
{7:1} Alif (A). Laam (L). Meem (M). Saad (S).

Quote:
{7:2} [This is] a Book revealed to you, [O Muhammad] - so let there not be in your breast distress therefrom - that you may warn thereby and as a reminder to the believers.

I suggest,
{7:2} A Book sent down to you [, O Muhammad], so let there not be in your bosom [any] awkwardness about it, that you may warn thereby and as a reminder to the believers.

Quote:
{7:3} Follow, [O mankind], what has been revealed to you from your Lord and do not follow other than Him any allies. Little do you remember.

I suggest,
{7:3} Follow [,O mankind,] what has been sent down to you from your Lord and do not follow besides Him any allies. Little [it is] that you remember.

I'd like to note here that this verse is an extremely powerful instruction from God, which eliminates authority from any text other than the Quran and from any person other than the Prophet (PBUH).
