Question

The names of idols of the pagan Arabs are well known, including Laat, Manat, and Uzza. Which was the fourth idol that was worshipped by the pagan Arabs?

Answer

All perfect praise be to Allaah, The Lord of the Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allaah, and that Muhammad  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ) is His slave and Messenger.

 

The idols that the Arabs used to worship in the Arabic peninsula were numerous. In addition to Al-Laat, Al-‘Uzza and Manaat, they used to worship Hubal, Isaaf and Naa’ilah, and there were many others.

The Muslim historians mentioned that when the Prophet  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ) entered Makkah, he found 360 idols around the Ka’bah.

Allaah Knows best.
