تَجْرِي بِأَمْرِهِ إِلَى الاَْرْضِ الَّتِي بَارَكْنَا فِيهَا

running by his command towards the land which We had blessed.

And of everything We are the All-Knower.

He had a mat made of wood on which he would place all the equipment of his kingship; horses, camels, tents and troops, then he would command the wind to carry it, and he would go underneath it and it would carry him aloft, shading him and protecting him from the heat, until it reached wherever he wanted to go in the land. Then it would come down and deposit his equipment and entourage.

Allah says;

فَسَخَّرْنَا لَهُ الرِّيحَ تَجْرِى بِأَمْرِهِ رُخَأءً حَيْثُ أَصَابَ

So, We subjected to him the wind; it blew gently by his order whithersoever he willed. (38;36)

غُدُوُّهَا شَهْرٌ وَرَوَاحُهَا شَهْرٌ

its morning was a month's (journey), and its afternoon was a month's. (34;12)
