The summary/theme of the  Surah At-Tur:

This Surah was revealed during the 5th year of the Prophet's life at Makkah. At that time, the Prophet (pbuh) was being targeted with objections and accusations, but severe persecution of Muslims had not yet begun.

Lesson learned from Surah At-Tur:

1. Allāh knows more about us than we know about ourselves, right from when He created us from dust, and when we were embryos in our mothers’ wombs.  

2. Allāh is more aware of who is and isn’t god-conscious, so we should not claim piety for ourselves.  

3. Every action of man will be recompensed in full on the Day of Judgement.  

4. Allāh is the one who makes us laugh and cry, gives life, and causes death.
