Quran 52 Verse 30 Explanation

For those looking for commentary to help with the understanding of Surah Tur ayat 30, we’ve provided two Tafseer works below. The first is the tafseer of Abul Ala Maududi, the second is of Ibn Kathir.

Ala-Maududi

(52:30) Or do they say: “He is a poet for whom we await an adverse turn of fortune.”[23]


23. That is, we are waiting for him to be afflicted with calamity so that we get rid of him. Probably they thought that since Muhammad (peace be upon him) was opposing their deities and denying their supernatural powers, he would fall under the curse of some deity, or some bold devotee of a god would put an end to him.
