The summary/theme of the Surah al-jathiyah: 

The Surah admonishes and warns those who reject the Divine truth. The Surah speaks about human arrogance and that God will judge everyone, and the nations will kneel in front of God at that time. It answers the doubts of Mecca's disbelievers about Tauhid and the Hereafter in this Surah.

Lesson learned from Surah al-jathiyah: 

  1. Allāh made subservient for man most things on earth.  
  2. Whoever does good, does so for his/her own benefit; and whoever does bad, will him/herself stand to suffer from it.  
  3. If you become a slave to your desires, you will deviate despite knowing the truth, and become blind and deaf to it.  
  4. On the Day of Qiyāmah, each nation will be seen on their knees, before their book of deeds is given to them.
