to the Arabic speakers, what exactly does the word مَنَازِلَ mean, especially in the context of this verse:
And the moon – We have determined for it phases (مَنَازِل), until it returns [appearing] like the old date stalk.(Yasin, Verse 39, Sahih International)
I looked up the meaning of this word online. I could only found that it means: house, home, resident, dwelling, domicile etc.. Does it also mean „phases“, „station“ and „stages“, as translated in some translations. There are also some translators, who translates it as „mansions“.
What does it mean in this context?
It would be great, if someone answers.
Allah knows best.
