Quran 52 Verse 33 Explanation
For those looking for commentary to help with the understanding of Surah Tur ayat 33, we’ve provided two Tafseer works below. The first is the tafseer of Abul Ala Maududi, the second is of Ibn Kathir.
(52:33) Do they say: “He has himself fabricated the Qur’an?” No; the truth is that they are altogether averse to believing.
26. In other words, it means this: The Quraish who think that Muhammad (peace be upon him) himself is the author of the Quran know deep down in their hearts that it cannot be his word, and those others also whose mother tongue is Arabic not only clearly feel that it is far more sublime and superior to human speech but any one of them who knows Muhammad (peace be upon him) personally cannot ever suspect that this is actually his own word and speech. Therefore, the thing plainly is that those who ascribe the authorship of the Quran to the Prophet (peace be upon him) do not, in fact, wish to affirm faith. That is why they are inventing false excuses one of which is this excuse. For further explanation, see (Surah Younus, ayat 16) note 21; (Surah Al-Furqan, ayat 6) note 12; (Surah Al-Qasas, ayat 46) note 64; (Surah Al-Ankabut, ayat 48-49) note 88,89; (Surah As-Sajdah, ayat 1-3) note 1-4; (Surah HaMim As-Sajdah, ayat 44) note 54; (Surah Al-Ahqaf, ayat 7-8) note 8-10.
