Surat At-Tur (Arabic: سورة الطور‎, "The Mount") is the 52nd sura of the Qur'an with 49 ayat. The surah that opens with the oath of the Divine One swearing by the Mount of Sinai, where the Torah was revealed to Moses. It takes its name from "the mount" (ṭūr) mentioned in Ayah#1. The surah which addresses many of the arguments put to the Prophet by the disbelievers of Mecca (ayah#29 ff.). The bliss that will be enjoyed by the believers is contrasted to the torments of Hell, and the Prophet is urged to bide his time, to continue to deliver his message, and to wait with confidence for God’s judgement. God swears by, among other things, Mount Sinai, that the Day of Judgement is inevitable.[1]
