Answering Islamophobic Claims

Does Allah have daughters?

Share

 

One common argument or claim put forth by some critics today is that that Allah, the God of Islam, has 3 daughters. Those daughters being the pagan goddesses’ of Lat, Manat, and Al-Uzza.

This is quite a strange argument indeed, more strange is that they quote the Quran to try and prove it, quoting the following verses:

Have ye seen Lat. and 'Uzza, And another, the third (goddess), Manat? 
 (53:19-20)

Yet if we just continued reading a little further, we would then read:

What! For you the male sex, and for Him, the female? 

Behold, such would be indeed a division most unfair! 

These are nothing but names which ye have devised,- ye and your fathers,- for which Allah has sent down no authority(whatever). They follow nothing but conjecture and what their own souls desire!- Even though there has already come to them Guidance from their Lord! 

(53:21-23)

So when we read on, the verses go on to explicitly refute such a notion, that Allah has daughters. The verses say that such a claim is a corruption, something some people have said with no authority, and something that they wanted.

In essence, this was something made up by some of the Arab pagans, they had dozens and dozens of idols (360), and they would ascribe certain things upon these idols, which obviously meant nothing, these were things they invented to make themselves feel better. And so for these 3 idols in specific, the pagans decided to label them as the daughters of Allah, to give a special place for the 3 idols. As the Quranic verse says, they did it for their own desires.

The most important point however is the Quran denies what the pagans have ascribed to God, denying that he has daughters, and that the pagans simply made this up with no authority from God.

In conclusion, Allah has no daughters.
