The cloud separates the upper atmosphere from the lower atmosphere

In the Quran, the cloud is between the earth and the sky; the interpreter of the Quran and the Bible Mohammed-Ali Hassan Al-Hilly explained that the cloud separates the sky [gaseous layers] from the earth, as in the aya 2: 164, which means:
(And in the changing of winds,
and in the cloud [that God] has subjected between the sky and the earth,
[there] are signs to people who understand.
)

The interpreter said "Here, God – be exalted – explained that the cloud is between the sky and the earth.
So, the position of the sky [gaseous layers] is from the cloud up, while the position of the air is from the cloud down.
Therefore, the wind belongs or is related to the earth but not to the sky
."

However, someone asked me: "The cloud differs in height: some of it is low, and other clouds are high; so how can the cloud separate the earth from the sky or the gaseous layers?"

The answer:
The gaseous layers of the sky are 7 layers, which almost are the layers of the stratosphere [and above??].
At that altitude there is no wind and no cloud; therefore the airplanes prefer to fly above the cloud in the stratosphere, where there are no aerobic pitfalls because these layers are steady: no winds and no clouds and no rain there.
While the wind moves the cloud and the rain comes down in the troposphere below the stratosphere; here also the birds fly in the air or the lower atmosphere.

God - be glorified - said in the Quran 16: 79, which means:
(Have the [people of Mecca] not regarded the birds [which bombarded with stones the host of the elephant] obedient in the atmosphere of the sky; none withholds them [from bombarding them with stones] save God; surely this [bombarding of the host of the elephant] includes signs for a people who believe [in its occurring.])

The gaseous layers and the air are the same thing.

I mean the 'air' is the mixture of gases of the troposphere, while the gaseous layers are high above the region of the cloud: the stratosphere.
Therefore, the 'air' is a mixture,
while the gaseous layers are distinctly separated gaseous layers; each of a distinct gas, like the SO2, the NH3, etc.

That's not right. The atmosphere is divided into layers based on temperature, and each layer is air, a mixture of gases.

That's what they say, while logically the air is a mixture because of the wind, or else the gases will separate: the light will be high while the heavier will be below.
And because the gases differ in weight, they should then separate. This is the case at least in the Stratosphere, which is static and therefore, should have its gases distinct.

That's not right either, apparently meteorology is another science Al Hilly knew nothing about. The stratosphere has a fairly complex wind system. There are no violent storms there, temperature changes slowly with altitude and there's very little of the convection necessary to brew up a storm, but it's certainly not static, winds of 60-70 meters per second are common.

That doesn't happen because the atmosphere is turbulent. That turbulence keeps the denser gases from sinking and the less dense gases from rising. It keeps them mixed up.
