[Quranic Reflection]: By the sun and its morn

[Quranic Reflection]: By the sun and its morn
One interesting verse in the Quran says:


Quote:Sura 91, The Quran:
https://quran.ksu.edu.sa/index.php?l=en#...rans=en_sh

( 1 )   By the sun and its brightness/morn
( 2 )   And [by] the moon when it follows it
( 3 )   And [by] the day when it displays it
( 4 )   And [by] the night when it covers it
( 5 )   And [by] the sky and He who constructed it
( 6 )   And [by] the earth and He who spread it

The day does display the sun; defining it as the simple rotation of the earth to the direction facing the sun.
The indication that the sun does indeed become "not visible to us" at night is not explained through mysticism or fantasies -like the one's in Ancient Egyptian stories-, but actually through telling us that nothing makes the sun obvious to us but the "time" of the day.

But the night doesn’t ‘cover’ the sun. That’s just silly.

The perspective is for a man standing on earth. Not for a satellite.

The author of magic book has a mans perspective, a man who thinks that night covers the sun...in your estimation?
I am the Infantry. I am my country’s strength in war, her deterrent in peace. I am the heart of the fight… wherever, whenever. I carry America’s faith and honor against her enemies. I am the Queen of Battle. I am what my country expects me to be, the best trained Soldier in the world. In the race for victory, I am swift, determined, and courageous, armed with a fierce will to win. Never will I fail my country’s trust. Always I fight on…through the foe, to the objective, to triumph overall. If necessary, I will fight to my death. By my steadfast courage, I have won more than 200 years of freedom. I yield not to weakness, to hunger, to cowardice, to fatigue, to superior odds, For I am mentally tough, physically strong, and morally straight. I forsake not, my country, my mission, my comrades, my sacred duty. I am relentless. I am always there, now and forever. I AM THE INFANTRY! FOLLOW ME!

It isn’t even that. I could understand the perspective that the night covers the land, but not the sun. You’re just compounding your silliness.

*Mohammed -peace be upon him- has a man's perspective.
And it tells us that an "Analogous language" was used.

The night does cover the sun. I understand that "night" is a time.

From a man's pov, the night "does" cover the sun.

If the night covered the sun, then the sun would stay in the same place and the night would descend over it like...like...some sort of cover-y thing. Not only does that not happen, that doesn't even look like what happens.

If it doesn't look like that even to an ancient human; then probably you understood the text wrongly.
When the sun is covered by "the night", then we are speaking about an "Analogous language"; which is exactly the case with many verses in the Quran.
