What is the authenticity of the following narration?
“The clothing of Adam and Hawa was light [nur] which covered their private parts, none could see the ‘awrah [private area] of the other. When they erred [by eating from the tree], their private parts had become exposed”
Imam Ibn Jarir (rahimahullah) has recorded this narration as the statement of the reliable Tabi’i, Wahb ibn Munabbih (rahimahullah) who famously reports Israely (Historical) narrations.
Hafiz Ibn Kathir (rahimahullah) has declared the chain reliable.
(Tafsir Tabari and Tafsir Ibn Kathir, Surah Al A’araf, Verse: 22)
And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
