Brief Polytheism

Sharing Options

“Muhammad also compromised with the Meccan merchants during a particularly intense time of persecution. Formerly he had fearlessly condemned polytheism. Then, under pressure, he accepted the Meccan belief that Allah had a wife, Al-lat, and two daughters, Al Uzzo and Manat (Surah 53:20-23). Later Muhammad repudiated these so called Satanic verses and claimed that all previous prophets had been tempted by demonic influence” (Peter Hammond, Slavery, Terrorism & Islam, p. 44).
