The Moon does not have its own light. The sun is at an angle where it illuminates the moon, but not where you can see the sun. That is why it appears that the Moon changes shapes, but it is just the sun’s position (and thus lighting) rotating around the moon. When there is a new moon (when the moon is completely dark), the sun is at an angle where it cannot shed any light on the moon.
