(64:17:4) إِنْ تُقْرِضُوا اللَّهَ قَرْضًا. Should قَرْضًا not be مفعول مطلق instead of مفعول به?

To construct a مفعول مطلق you would use the masdar of the verb, which in this case would be اقراضا and not qualified by any adjective. In this case قَرْضًا clearly means "a loan", the object of the verb.
