Abstract

Vivid passages in the Qur’an betray the antagonism between the monotheistic message of Muhammad and traditional polytheism that once dominated Arabia. These passages fulminate against all who associate other beings with God, sometimes naming names:

Do you see Lat and Uzza And Manat the other third?

Do you have a male [child] and Him a female [child]?

(53.19–21)
