Verbal Noun. It is in nominative case and absolute state with Tanween, as predicate. There is noting elided in the sentence that could lead to what is added in the parentheses [journey was that of]. Moreover, there is nothing with which the journeys are compared, that its journey in time duration of dawn and sunrise was equivalent to journey of such and such covered in a month.

The subject of sentence denotes going or coming, movement at time early in the morning and not the distance covered in a journey.
