Islams concept and orgins of Allah

The Qurash (aka: Quraish) tribe which Muhammad belonged to was in charge of idol worship at the Ka'ba Shrine. The chief god of Muhammad's tribe was one of the three sister goddesses called al-Uzza, the youngest of the three daughters of the pre-Islamic Allah and the patron goddess of Mecca. Her name means "the mighty one". The other two were named "al-Lat and "al-Manat". It was only by chance that a fortune teller counseled Muhammad's grandfather against sacrificing Muhammad's father to this al-Uzza pagan diety. The head of these pagan deities was "Al-llah". It is believed that "al-llah" in Muhammad's time before Islam referred to a vague moon god and that Muhammad believed that al-Uzza was a daughter of this "al-llah".

The Qurash tribe's Allah corresponded to the god Bel, which is another name of the Assyrio-Babylonian gods En-lil and Marduk. It has the same meaning as Baal. The Arabic today translates the word Allah as "God". Muhammad's father's name was "Abd-Allah" (or slave of Allah). When Muhammad says there is only one god - Allah - now you have an idea what his background/ thinking was. Also it is believed the out of 359 idols destoryed by muhammad only one remained intact, this was the idol of the his tribes moon-god so when muslims worship and prostrate towads the kaaba (house of allah) they are worshipping the house of the pagan moon god idol of muhammads tribe.
