Mu' meneen Brothers and Sisters,

As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)


One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:

Who are Al-Lat, Al-Uzza, Manat and Huba?


(There may be some grammatical and spelling errors in the above statement. The forum does not change anything from questions, comments and statements received from our readers for circulation in confidentiality.)




Who are lat uzza manat hubaal

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.


Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 53 Surah Najm verses 19-23:

19 Have ye seen ‘Lat’ and ‘Uzza’

20 And another the third (goddess) ‘Manat’?

21 What? For you the male sex and for Him the female?

22 Behold such would be indeed a division most unfair!

23 These are nothing but names which ye have devised, ye and your fathers, for which Allah has sent down no authority (whatever). They follow nothing but conjecture and what their own souls desire! Even though there has already come to them Guidance from their Lord!


The names ‘Lat’, ‘Uzza’, ‘Manat’ and ‘Hubaal’ were four amongst the 360+ names and images assigned to the self-invented and false deities, gods and goddesses which were worshipped by the pagans of Arabia at the time of the advent of the Prophet (saws).


These four self-invented and false deities were recognized and honored as the principal idols of pagan Arab idolatry in the days of ignorance in Arabia.


Ref: Al-Lat

The shrine of the supposed goddess Al-Lat was placed in the city of Taif, and the Arab tribe of Banu Thaqeef were its main devotees.


Ref: Al-Uzza

The shrine of the supposed goddess Al-Uzza was situated at a place called Hurad in the valley of Nakhlah, which is situated between the cities of Makkah and Taif. The Arab tribe of the Banu Shaibaan, who happened to be the allies of the tribe of Banu Hashim, were its main attendees.


Ref: Manat

The shrine of the supposed goddess Manat was situated at Qudaid by the Red Sea between the cities of Makkah and Madinah; and the Arab tribes of Khuzaah, Aus, and Khazraj were its principal devotees.


Ref: Hubaal

Hubaal was apparently the biggest and most honored deity amongst the many gods of pagan Quraish of Makkah


Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah’s Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.


Your brother and well wisher in Islam,
