English: Allat was a Pre-Islamic Arabian goddess who was one of the three chief goddesses of Mecca. She is mentioned in the Qur'an (Sura 53:19), which indicates that pre-Islamic Arabs considered her as one of the daughters of Allah along with Manat and Al-Uzza.
- Arabian folklore: Allah was worshipped in pre-Islamic Arabia and Nabataea with a family of deities around him among which was a triad of goddesses called "the three daughters of Allah": Al-Lat ("Mother Goddess of prosperity") Al-Uzza ("Mighty one") the youngest, and Al-Manat ("Fate") "the third, the other". They were known collectively as the three cranes.
- These goddesses are said to have figured in an early version of the Qur'an - the apocryphal Satanic Verses.
