Daughters of Allah in the Kaaba

The word Allah is a derivation of the moon god Al-ailah, also know as Sin, Hubul or Ilumquh. He is the highest ranking god in the pre-Islamic pantheon. The Kaaba was originally called the house of Al-ailah.

Al-ailah occupied a place of prominence among the Quraish, Muhammad’s tribe. This chief god had three daughters, Al-Uzzah (Venus), Manah, goddess of destiny and Al-Lat, goddess of vegetation. All three goddesses are mentioned in the Quran and represented by the three pillars in the Kaaba.

Together, the three goddesses were symbolic of the triple-goddess form found in the Greek deities Kore/Demeter/Hecate and Babylonian Mary-Anna-Ishtar, the three daughters of Ba'al. The Biblical name Magdalene means "woman of the triple tower" in reference to this feminine trinity. As a physical trinity, they represent the feminine aspects of the Earth, Moon and Venus and, in relation to Al-ailah, the three phases of the Moon (waxing, full and waning).

Al-Lat was worshipped at Mecca for 2,000 years before Islam. In fact, the Kaaba was originally a shrine to her. Since the "t" at the end of Al-Lat designates feminine, she was seen as the feminine aspect of the masculine moon god Al-ailah. And like most other mother goddesses, Al-Lat was associated with Venus and symbolized by a star. When represented together with Al-ailah, the male-female union becomes the moon-star symbol found today on Islamic national flags.

Al-Lat's color was green. Today it is the color of Islam, found also in the green aprons worn in the Hebrew Temple of Jerusalem and Mormon temple today. The upper inside walls of the Kaaba are painted green in honor of Al-Lat.

The color green symbolizes Al-Lat's role as a vegetation goddess and links her to the so-called Green Man lineage of entheogenic moon gods, such as Osiris/Horus, Dionysus/Bacchus, Mithra, Soma/Chandra and many others.

In this way, Allah and Allat are personifications of the Moon and Venus, together representing spiritual enlightenment and resurrection into the afterlife. Obscured by the veil of Islamic interpretation, the Kaaba really represents the role of entheogenic communion in ancient temple rites designed to help worshippers ascend into the sky to meet the gods.

The kabbalah sect of Judaism once revered the Kaaba as their holiest shrine and 3rd Sacred Synagogue. In fact, Kaaba-allah means "Oh my God." The Jewish Kabbalah is thus the esoteric methods and rituals pertaining to ascension and enlightenment.

We see this kabbalist theosophy symbolized even today in the Turkish Fez "tower" hat worn by the Shriners. Their symbol is the moon and star suspended from a sword.
