Goddess Al-Lat

 


Al-Lat is the name of the Arabian ultimate goddess. 

"The Goddess" is how Al-Lat is translated.

  • She is Allah's feminine counterpart, and one of the three "daughters of God" described in the Qur'an. 
  • The promise "by the salt, by the fire, and by al-Lat, who is the greatest of all" was used to seal oaths at Mecca. 
  • She is the ultimate Earth Mother, giving food to her desert offspring as required. 
  • The solar disc cradled by the crescent moon, as well as square-shaped stones and crystals, are her emblems. 
  • The number seven is important to her.
