After visiting Sennen Cove at Cornwall, we finally arrived at Land's End at the most Westerly point of England's mainland about an hour before sunset. We waited for a while and were treated with the most gorgeous sunset. The experience of the travel, the coming to a road's end and 'perceiving' the sun setting in a pool of water somewhat resonated with Zulqurnain's travel and his coming to an extremity point of the sun's setting at the edge of a mainland.

'wajadaha' - perceive, experience, find.

In the case of this mainland's edge, the waters would extend across the Atlantic Ocean past the Rhode Island Shelf Valley, Long Island and to New York over 3000 miles away.
