Long before Islam, the Sabian in Arabia worshiped a Moon God who was also known as Ilumquh. Ilumquh was married to the Sun Goddess Dhat Hamymand had Three Daughters whom the people of that area started worshiping. The three daughters where called Allat, Al Uzza and Al Manat. These 3 deities where merged and they formed a triple goddess triad, like many other Moon Goddesses. We will examine each of these ancient Arabian deities which formed the Triple Goddess Allat and we will see how much coincidences we can find with the religion of Islam.
“Pre-Islamic worship of the goddess seems to be primarily associated with Al’Lat, which simply means ‘goddess’. She is a triple goddess, similar to the Greek lunar deity Kore/Demeter/Hecate. Each aspect of this trinity corresponds to a phase of the moon. In the same way Al’Lat has three names known to the initiate: Q’re, the crescent moon or the maiden; Al’Uzza, literally ‘the strong one’ who is the full moon and the mother aspect; then Al’Menat, the waning but wise goddess of fate, prophecy and divination. Islamic tradition continue to recognize these three but labels them ‘daughters of Allah’.”
“Allat was known as the goddess of spring and fertility. Under Hellenization Allat was later identified with the Greek/Roman goddess Athena/Minerva, and sometimes with Aphrodite or Urania/Venus Caelestis. Inscriptions mentioning Allat range from Hegra in Saudi Arabia to the Hauran in Syria. They include terms of reverence and adoration lasting until the Islamic period. Even at the founding of Islam, an image of Allat, along with one of Al-‘Uzza.”
We Will now take a look at some peculiar aspects of the Goddess Aphrodite who is identified with Al-‘Uzza :
“Meteorites-cults are common in Greco-Roman civilizations. According to the religious historian Mircea Eliade, the Temple of Artemis (Diana) at Ephesus contained a squat statue of the mother-goddess, carved from a meteorite that fell from Jupiter (Acts 19:26-35). The Palladium of Troy and the conic black stone or (Baetyl) of Elagabal in Emesa, Syria, are believed to be of meteoric origin. Likewise, the Phrygian mother goddess Cybele worshiped in Pessinus (later Rome) was a stone; doubtless a meteorite. A further example is the meteorite of Pessinunt in Phrygia, which was worshiped as “the needle of Cybele,” brought to Rome in a powerful procession after the Punic war on advice from the Delphic oracle; there the meteorite was worshiped as a fertility goddess for further 500 years.”
“The most famous of all of the stone fetishes of Arabia was, of course, the black stone in the sanctuary of Mecca. The Kabah was, and still is, a rectangular stone structure. Built into its Eastern corner is the black stone which had been an object of worship for many centuries before Mohammed appropriated the Kabah for his new religion, and made the pilgrimage to this holy place one of the pillars of Islam” (Mohammed: The man and his faith, Tor Andrae, 1936, Translated by Theophil Menzel, 1960, p. 13-30; Britannica, Arabian Religions, p. 1059, 1979). The “Hadschar al Aswad” in the Kabah is the most well known example of meteorite worship in newer times. Despite the prohibition of portraying God and adoration of objects, pilgrims to Mecca kiss this “Hadschar al-Aswad” (black stone) which, according to the prophet is “Yamin Allah” (the right hand of God), supposedly a divine meteorite or Bethel- stone predating creation that fell at the feet of Adam and Eve. It is presently embedded in the southeastern corner of the Kabah. Muslims touch and kiss the black stone during Hajj.”
“Al-‘Uzza was the goddess of power. The chief goddesses of the Nabataean pantheon were Al-‘Uzza, Al’lat, and Manawat. Under Hellenization, Al-‘Uzza was later identified with Aphrodite, Urania/Venus Caelestis, and also linked to the Egyptian goddess, Isis. Representations of Al-‘Uzza are carved on the Treasury at Petra. The Baetyl of al- Uzza-Aphrodite is carved to the left of al-Kutbay. She is also mentioned in the Bosra inscription as a deity of the city, and her cult continued at Mecca until the coming of Islam. An Osiris (Isis) fragment from the Temple of the Winged Lions in Petra has been found, and Nabataean inscriptions have been located in Egypt. These provide us with evidence of how far the Nabataeans traveled and traded, and give us clues of how the Nabataean sculptors could have borrowed traits from Osiris (Isis) in Egypt that they applied to their own goddess, Al ‘Uzza.”

Editor’s Note: This does not necessarily entail the beliefs, thoughts, or theories of the local Act chapters or the National Act office…they are my beliefs, thoughts and/or theories. The *Edomite deity Qos/Quash, clearly connected with moon worship through the use of the typical crescent moon and star symbology found throughout the ancient Near East,(1) was carried over into the Nabataean realm with the name Qos-Allah.(2) Guillaume noted that ‘Ilah (pre-Islamic spelling of allah) was a name applied to the moon god among some Pre-Islamic Arabian tribes.

Know this…In 1 Kings 18:28 the “prophets of Ba’al (Hubal, in Aramaic Ba’al [hu = ha, in which ha = the…ba’l = Ba’al]) prayed around their alter , cutting themselves and praying (to no avail I might add), and rituals that happen with the followers of allah, they march around the Kaaba seven times and pray, and they also perform the ritual of Ashura, or cutting themselves.
*(Edomites are descendants from Esau…Edom is sometimes referred to as Esau (Malachi 1:3), Idumea (Isaiah 34:5) and Mount Seir (Ezekiel 35:3). All of these names are interchangeable, referring to the same nation, Edom.)
