Nouman Ali Khan, Zakir Naik, among other Muslims, claim that “NURAN” in Surah 71:16 means “reflected or borrowed light”. However no Muslim in his right mind will claim that Allah (SWT) is reflected/borrowed light “Allahu nuru” (24:35) or Surah Al Nur is “Surah the reflected/borrowed light”. The Tafsirs of Surah 71:16 by ibn Abbas (RA), ibn Kathir (RA), Jalalayn (RA) all affirm that the Ayah speaks of the moon having its own, independent light. Scientifically the moon has no light (nuran), but I only believe in the Quran & Sunnah. What does this word (nur/nuran) actually mean, does the Quran affirm that the moon has its own independent light, nothing to do with the sun?
There is no contradiction between the Quran and modern science!
Allah’s Noor is unlike any other Noor and you trying to simulate Allah’s attribute to His creatures is a very dangerous thing!
The moon doesn’t have a light of its own and it is reflecting the light of the sun,
