In the Qur'an the pagans considered Allāt the daughter of Allah. In , Allāt is the daughter of Roḍaw, as in the following prayer--AWS 283: Allāt bent Roḍaw falleṭī mes-sanat haḥ-ḥarb 'Allat daughter of Roḍaw, deliver (us) from the year of war'.

The deity Roḍaw (lit. Satisfaction) was worshiped widely across North Arabia, even mentioned in cuneiform sources as: ru-ul-da-a-a-ú. The god also had an Aramaicized form as Rqy -- on this, see

The three deities, Allat, al-Uzza, and Manat, certainly imply a connection to the Nabataean world. It is simply unclear as of yet how far south the Nabataean cultural realm extended. See the article I posted yesterday concerning the issue of the script.

Certainly - the point of this reference was not to deny the Quranic idea that Allāt was regarded by some as a daughter of Allāh but to show that the pre-Islamic inscriptions attest an alternative filiation.

Christian Robin wrote two articles on the changing status of the 'daughters of God' in the near eastern pantheon through the millennia. They were initially independent deities of their own, but in the course of time lost status and became mere daughters-cum-intercessors.

Thank you for this tweet. Very interesting. Can we imagine a link between Allāh and Roḍaw ? specially, I mean their place in the pantheon. Or they are two different kind of divinities ?

There is one text invoking rdw and allah, suggesting some authors regarded them as different deities. It is entirely possible though that they merged for some cults. It has also been suggested that rdw and Dusares are the same. No evidence to support such an equation.
