So I was reading the Qu'ran and i came across this verse in Surah Tawbah

"Indeed, the postponing [of restriction within sacred months] is an increase in disbelief by which those who have disbelieved are led [further] astray. They make it lawful one year and unlawful another year to correspond to the number made unlawful by Allah and [thus] make lawful what Allah has made unlawful. Made pleasing to them is the evil of their deeds; and Allah does not guide the disbelieving people."

I was confused by "postponing" or "Nasi" I tried reading around in the English language but there appears to be many different interpretations made by the salaf which seems to contradict as seen by this pdf I read https://www.jstor.org/stable/20839824 and this made me even more confused so I decided that the authentic Athar made by a companion would be the most correct since its the earliest source and were actually around at the time of revelation etc so i came across this narration by Abdullah bin Amr ( I believe it was authenticated by Haythami)

عَمْرِو بْنِ شُعَيْبٍ، عَنْ أبِيهِ، عَنْ جَدِّهِ قالَ: «كانَتِ العَرَبُ يُحِلُّونَ عامًا شَهْرًا وعامًا شَهْرَيْنِ، ولا يُصِيبُونَ الحَجَّ إلّا في كُلِّ سِتَّةٍ وعِشْرِينَ سَنَةً مَرَّةً، وهو النَّسِيءُ الَّذِي ذَكَرَ اللَّهُ تَعالى في كِتابِهِ فَلَمّا كانَ عامُ حَجَّ أبُو بَكْرٍ بِالنّاسِ وافَقَ ذَلِكَ العامُ الحَجَّ فَسَمّاهُ اللَّهُ الحَجَّ الأكْبَرَ، ثُمَّ حَجَّ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ ﷺ مِنَ العامِ المُقْبِلِ فاسْتَقْبَلَ النّاسُ الأهِلَّةَ، فَقالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ ﷺ: إنَّ الزَّمانَ قَدِ اسْتَدارَ كَهَيْئَتِهِ يَوْمَ خَلَقَ اللَّهُ السَّماواتِ والأرْضَ

Also there's A narration from Mujahid ( I came across the fact about how he heard the tafsir of every Ayah from ibn abbas so perhaps this tafsir is from ibn Abbas)

مُجاهِدٍ في قَوْلِهِ: ﴿إنَّما النَّسِيءُ زِيادَةٌ في الكُفْرِ﴾ قالَ: فَرَضَ اللَّهُ الحَجَّ في ذِي الحِجَّةِ، وكانَ المُشْرِكُونَ يُسَمُّونَ الأشْهُرَ: ذُو الحِجَّةِ والمُحَرَّمُ وصَفَرُ ورَبِيعٌ ورَبِيعٌ وجُمادى وجُمادى ورَجَبُ وشَعْبانُ ورَمَضانُ وشَوّالُ وذُو القَعْدَةِ وذُو الحِجَّةِ، ثُمَّ يَحُجُّونَ فِيهِ ثُمَّ يَسْكُتُونَ عَنِ المُحَرَّمِ فَلا يَذْكُرُونَهُ، ثُمَّ يَعُودُونَ فَيُسَمُّونَ صَفَرَ صَفَرَ، ثُمَّ يُسَمُّونَ رَجَبَ جُمادى الآخِرَةَ، ثُمَّ يُسَمُّونَ شَعْبانَ رَمَضانَ ورَمَضانَ شَوّالَ، ويُسَمُّونَ ذا القَعْدَةِ شَوّالَ، ثُمَّ يُسَمُّونَ ذا الحِجَّةِ ذا القَعْدَةِ، ثُمَّ يُسَمُّونَ المُحَرَّمَ ذا الحِجَّةِ ثُمَّ يَحُجُّونَ فِيهِ واسْمُهُ عِنْدَهم ذُو الحِجَّةِ، ثُمَّ عادُوا مِثْلَ هَذِهِ القِصَّةِ فَكانُوا يَحُجُّونَ في كُلِّ شَهْرٍ عامًا، حَتّى وافَقَ حِجَّةُ أبِي بَكْرٍ الآخِرَةُ مِنَ العامِ في ذِي القَعْدَةِ ثُمَّ حَجَّ النَّبِيُّ ﷺ حَجَّتَهُ الَّتِي حَجَّ فِيها فَوافَقَ ذا الحِجَّةِ، فَذَلِكَ حِينَ يَقُولُ النَّبِيُّ ﷺ في خُطْبَتِهِ: إنَّ الزَّمانَ قَدِ اسْتَدارَ كَهَيْئَتِهِ يَوْمَ خَلَقَ اللَّهُ السَّماواتِ والأرْضَ»

Unfortunately my Arabic is pretty much non-existent and google translate isn't really helping so is it possible for someone to translate? Thank you very much
