Al-lāt is 1/3 Pre-Islamic Goddesses also referred to as "Allah’s daughters" and were worshipped among other deities in the pre-Islamic polytheistic Arabia. They were a site of dispute between Islam (which called for a monotheistic god who did not beget any children) and the Meccans who wanted to continue to worship their customary pantheon which they had known for centuries. At some point in the struggle the Meccans told Mohammed that they would recognize his religion if he just kept their goddess worship, especially that of Al-Uzza, whose shrine was in Mecca.
