Ayah

حَتَّىٰٓ إِذَا بَلَغَ مَطۡلِعَ ٱلشَّمۡسِ وَجَدَهَا تَطۡلُعُ عَلَىٰ قَوۡمٍ لَّمۡ نَجۡعَل لَّهُم مِّن دُونِهَا سِتۡرًا

Translation

Until, when he came to the rising of the sun, he found it rising on a people for whom We had provided no covering protection against the sun.<br/>

Tafsir

until, when he reached the rising of the sun, the place where it rises, he found it rising on a folk, namely, Negroes (zanj), for whom We had not provided against it, that is, [against] the sun, any [form of] cover, in the way of clothing or roofing, as their land could not support any structures; they had underground tunnels into which they would disappear at the rising of the sun and out of which they would emerge when it was at its highest point [in the sky].
