I don't know this guy , M.A.S. Abdel Haleem, But whoever he is, he did not bring new translation or understanding of this verse

"then, when he came to the setting of the sun, he found it [seemed to be] setting in a muddy spring......................................"

As I told you, eversince I was kid, I know for sure that people would say about someone who opened his eyes in anger, that he is Ham'an, from the adjective Hami'a when means angery

So for sure it does not set in muddy spring or what so ever, but it is clear to everyone including you that it sets as if angry eye, Which I am sure it makes more sense to everyone including you, so whatever the words used in the Quran, does not mean what the people translate if they ar wrong.

I am 100% sure that it means angry eye, because I heard it hundreds of times since I was kid.
