On "ten nights" .......

QUOTE -
"By the ten nights." If the context is kept in view, it will become plain that it implies each group of the ten nights among the thirty nights of the month, the first ten nights being those during which the crescent moon starting as a thin nail. goes on waxing every night until its major portion becomes bright; the second group of the ten nights being those during which the greater part of the night remains illumined by the moon, and the last ten nights being those during which the moon goes on waning and the nights becoming more and more dark until by the end of the month the whole night becomes absolutely dark."

On "even and the odd" ..........

QUOTE -
"Even is the number which is divisible into two equal parts, as 2, 4, 6, 8, and the odd the number which is not so divisible, as l, 3, 5, 7  .... Since the context here concerns the day and the night, the even and the odd mean the alternation of day and night in the sense that the dates of the month go on changing from the first to the second, and from second to the third, and every change brings with it a new state."

MashAllah, many thanks brother TS.  Good job finding this.    It's certainly a very sensible one and I'm glad it's a rare one that studies the Quran independently, not hovering around traditional writings.    Thanks again.  I must remember and save it so that there shouldn't be any future confusions on this topic.  I mean, surely Allah knows best, but I think this commentary is largely accurate.
