If personification is the answer to this figure of speech"the sun continue to smile on him", why is it so?

Personification is the attribution of human qualities and attributes to nonhuman things. In "the sun continue to smile on him," the sun is smiling, which is considered as a human quality. The sun doesn't literally smile (up)on (someone or something), but it expresses, bestow, or look with favor or approval on someone or something.

Actually, personification gives human qualities to non-human things.
