52:14  They will be told:” This is the Fire that you were denying.”
52:15  “Do you think this is magic? Can you see now what you were rejecting?”
52:16  Burn now. whether you bear it or not, this is your destiny. You are simply being rewarded according to your deeds

52:30  They say: “Mohammad is a poet, insulting our idols; we are waiting so that pretty soon he will be subjected to a miserable end by our gods.”
52:31  Tell them: “Wait, I will be waiting too.”
52:32  Are these contradictory accusations [calling Mohammad an intelligent poet and at the same time a mad man, for example] the fruit of their thoughts or the manifestation of their wicked nature
52:33  While they know that Mohammad is not capable of coming up with such a superior work like Qur’an, is their insistence upon this accusation not a sign of their wickedness
52:34  If they really believe that a man is capable of producing a book like this, then challenge them to produce a similar book, if they are sincere about what they are saying
52:35  Do they think that they are created out of nothing? Are they their own creators
52:36  Have they created heavens and the earth? The fact of the matter is that they are sure of nothing; they have no faith
52:37  Do they possess the treasures of your Lord? Do they have control over anything
52:38  Have they any ladder to climb up to heaven and listen directly to their Lord [as they deny the authenticity of the message relayed to them by the Messenger]. If so, what have they heard? Do they have any proof
52:39  If they claim to hear from God, how come they assign daughters to God while they kill their own daughters as it is beneath their “dignity” to have nothing but son
52:40  Does our prophet ask for a wage for his mission that they are afraid of paying for him
52:41  Do they have the knowledge of the unseen realities that they flatly refuse it
52:42  Do they constantly devise secret plots against our prophet? Let them know that those who devise devilish plots, their plots always backfires
52:43  Do they have any other God beside God? Glory to God, far above having a partner
52:44  Even a great miracle such as falling a part of the sky will be justified by them as “a mass of cloud advancing.”
52:45  So let them in their disbelief till the Day that they will be struck down
52:46  On that day their plots will not protect them; nothing will protect them
52:47  Even before that Day, they will be subject to misfortunes without understanding it
52:48  Be patient till you are given the victory. God is watching over His Prophet. Glorify and praise your Lord when you wake up
