The Prophet (sawa), Ameer Al-Mu’mineen (as), The Tyrants (la), and the Imams (as) – The first four ayaat of Surat Al-Shams are quite incredible when one looks at the esoteric meaning.

I swear by the sun and its brilliance
And the moon when it follows the sun
And the night when it draws a veil over it
By the Day as it shows up (the Sun’s) clarity
Surat Al-Shams (91:1-4)

‘I asked Abu Abdullah (as) about the Words of Allah Mighty and Majestic “I swear by the sun and its brilliance”, he (as) said: ‘The ‘Sun’ is the Messenger of Allah (sawa) by whom Allah Illuminated for the people, their Religion’.
I said, ‘(What about) “And the moon when it follows the sun?” He (as) said: ‘That is Ameer-ul-Mu’mineen (as). He (as) followed the Messenger of Allah (sawa), and he (as) emitted with the Knowledge, an inspiration’.
I said, ‘(What about) “And the night when it draws a veil over it?” He (as) said: ‘The unjust imams who were tyrannical with the command to the Progeny of the Messenger (sawa), and they sat in gatherings for which the Progeny of the Messenger (sawa) was higher for it than them. So they obscured the Religion of Allah (swt) by the tyranny and the injustice, and so Allah (swt) has Said of their actions, and Said: “And the night when it draws a veil over it”.
I said, ‘(What about) “By the Day as it shows up (the Sun’s) clarity?” He (as) said: ‘That is the Imam (as) from the descendants of Fatima (as). He (as) would be asked about the Religion of the Messenger of Allah (sawa), so he would give it to the one who asks him. Thus Allah Mighty and Majestic has Said in His Words “By the Day as it shows up (the Sun’s) clarity”.

جماعة، عن سهل، عن محمد، عن أبيه [عن أبي محمد]، عن أبي عبد الله (عليه السلام) قال:
سألته عن قول الله عز وجل: ” والشمس وضحيها ” قال: الشمس رسول الله (صلى الله عليه وآله) به أوضح الله عز وجل للناس دينهم، قال: قلت: ” القمر إذا تليها “؟ قال: ذاك أمير المؤمنين (عليه السلام) تلا رسول الله (صلى الله عليه وآله) ونفثه بالعلم نفثا، قال: قلت: ” والليل إذا يغشيها “؟ قال: ذاك أئمة الجور الذين استبدوا بالامر دون آل الرسول (صلى الله عليه وآله) وجلسوا مجلسا كان آل الرسول أولى به منهم فغشوا دين الله بالظلم والجور فحكى الله فعلهم فقال: ” والليل إذا يغشيها ” : قال: قلت: ” والنهار إذا جليها “؟ قال: ذلك الامام من ذرية فاطمة (عليها السلام) يسأل عن دين رسول الله (صلى الله عليه وآله) فيجليه لمن سأله فحكى الله عز وجل قوله فقال:  والنهار إذا جليها
