Quran 12:3-6 – Sun And Moon And Stars Prostrating
In Surah Yusuf in the bezinning Yusuf says that he dreamt the and the moon & stars prostrating towards him. I read in tafseers as well that the sun was Prophet Jacob & Moon was Yusuf’s mother and stars were his brothers. My question is , when God says in the surah Yusuf saw Sun and Moon & stars prostrating towards him. Dis he saw his parents and brothers in dream prostrating or did He saw the planets? Because if he saw planets as he mentioned then I dont understand how do planets even prostrate ? What is the image? I do understand it is a metaphor but why does God used then this metaphor? Or did Yusuf saw his family members in the dream as well but God is giving metaphor im Quran for us to compare?
