As-Salam-u-Alaikum I am newly converted to Islam, to understand the Quran better I used the tafsir of ibn Kathir as a guide. In verses 25:61 tafsir say
(and a moon giving light.) means, shining and illuminated by the light of something else, different from the light of the sun
But at verses 36:37-40
As for the moon, Allah has decreed that it should pass through different phases. At the beginning of the month, the moon appears small when it rises. It gives off little light, then on the second night its light increases and it rises to a higher position, and the higher it rises the more light it gives -- even though it is reflected from the sun -- until it becomes full on the fourteenth night of the month
Edit:My Question, Why tafsir gives two different Explanation about moonlight.
is there something I am missing? and what is the meaning of nur which is used in 10:5? Sorry if the Question is not proper, I just want to know what is truth.
Peace be unto you and so may the mercy of Allah and his blessings
