Does Quran (53:19-23) in the Qur’an tell Muslims to worship al-Lat, al-Uzza, and Manat?

El-Lat, El-Uzza, and Manat?

First Read this Chapre from the Glorious Holy Quran that highlist that Muslims worship THE LORD of this House which the black stone is in:

One common argument or claim put forth by Christians today is that the Quran claims That Allah has 3 daughters, those daughters being the pagan goddesses of Lat, Manat, and Al-Uzza. Such a claim is very strong indeed, but is there any truth behind this claim?

Does the Quran state that Allah has three daughters?

To back this claim up, the Christians often quote one Quranic passage, and then think they have proven their point, let us quote this passage:

โ€œHave you (all) considered al-Lat and al-Uzza (the most respected idols by them), and Manat the other [who ranks] in third place?? Do you have sons while He has daughters?? That would then be an unfair distribution! Decidedly they are nothing except names you have named, you and your fathers. In no way has Allah sent down concerning them any all-binding authority.

Decidedly they closely follow nothing except surmise and what (prejudices) the selves yearn to; and indeed, the guidance has already come to them from their Lord.โ€

Surah An Najm= Chapter the Star (53:19-23)

So had the Christians care to carry on, they would see that Allah exposes them making such a lie! Allah tells them that the pagans have invented these false idols, and that it is something corrupt.

We must ask why do Christians not quote the rest? In fact, I will not hold the Christians responsible for such deceit, but I will hold the holy spirit responsible. Christians claim the holy spirit inspires them, if that is true then the holy spirit is inspiring them to be untruthful, and to be distorters of truth, and to try and make up a lie.

And such actions cannot be coming from a holy being, rather such action is inspired by someone called Iblis, who is shaytan, because only shaytan inspires people to make a lie against Allah and his Noble Quran.

Another Explanation:

What if you could have read two more next verses from the same chapter (53-22-23)

In Surah 53:19-21 Allah has raised questions/objections (in respect to the malpractices at that time 

1. appointing more gods other than one Almighty 

2. burying alive the female child in the ground in the name of God) and He (Allah) Himself gives the answer to these questions in Verse 22-23

19 Have you considered al-Lat and al-Uzza?

20 And Manat, the third one, the other?

21 Are you to have the males, and He the females?

22 What a bizarre distribution.

23 These (al-Lat and al-Uzza and Manat) are nothing but names, which you have devised, you and your ancestors, for which Allah sent down no authority. They follow nothing but assumptions, and what the ego desires, even though guidance has come to them from their Lord.

Islam is monotheistic to the strictest possible extent.

ยท        Allah is One and Only.

ยท        He is Eternal i.e. uncreated.

ยท        He is Omnipotent and Omniscient.

ยท        He does whatever He wills.

ยท        He has no parents or children.

ยท        He has no partners or counterparts.

ยท        He has no wife.

ยท        He has no equal.

ยท        He cannot be compared to anything.

ยท        His attributes are strictly His own.

ยท        He shares His power with no one.

ยท        He does not require anyoneโ€™s help.

ยท        He has no weakness.

ยท        His order is implemented without delay.

ยท        No one can question His decision.

ยท        Allah is not answerable to anyone.

ยท        He is the sole creator, owner, and disposer of all the creation.

Surah Al-Najm (53), which you mentioned, clearly states that the idols (Lat, Uzza & Manat) are nothing but vain desires of the kuffar:

โ€œThey are not but [mere] names you have named them – you and your forefathers – for which Allah has sent down no authority. They follow not except assumption and what [their] souls desire, and there has already come to them from their Lord guidance.โ€ (53:43)

Edit 1:

The whole story of Satan mixing some verses during recitation of the Quran by the Prophet peace be upon him is a fabrication. All the scholars of hadith are unanimous on declaring this report as unauthentic.

Moreover, the simplest proof of the falsehood of this story is that when a doubtful (zanni) report contradicts a certain (qataโ€™ai) report, then the zanni report is rejected. Thus, Allah says in the Quran:

โ€œNor does he speak from [his own] inclination. It is not but a revelation revealed,โ€ Quran (53:3โ€“4)

โ€œFalsehood cannot approach it from before it or from behind it; [it is] a revelation from a [Lord who is] Wise and Praiseworthy.โ€ Quran (41:42)

These ayat are clear, and explicitly state that the Prophet peace be upon him can never utter any falsehood. Moreover, no falsehood can enter the Quran in any way. Hence, based on the fact that this story contradicts the qataโ€™ai ayat of the Quran, it is rejected.

Satan is The God of The Bible So Christians Are Worshiping Satan not The Real God.

Clear Evidence from The Bible That Satan is The God of Christians and Jews. First of All, there is not a single verse in The Bible which says that the bible is not from Satan.

In Isaiah 14:12-13 Satan Said i Will be God.

In 2 Corinthians 4:4 Satan is Called God.

In 1 John 5:19 Satan Controls the World.

In Ezekiel 28:15 Satan is creator.

In Matthew 4:9 Luke 4:6 Satan is The Owner of Everything.

In Lamentations 3:38 Amos 3:6 Isaiah 45:7 Satan is the most high.

In Ezekiel 28:17 Satan is beautiful.

In John 8:44 Satan Has Same Name Like Father Equal with The Father.

In John 12:31 Satan is prince of the world.

In John 12:31 The earth is the devil’s.

In Job 1:6-7, 2:1-2, Zech Satan is free to act as he pleases.

In Ephesians 2:2 Satan has the kingdom of the power.

In Ezekiel 28:12 Satan was the model of perfection.

In Ezekiel 28:12 Satan is full of wisdom.

In Lamentations 3:38 Satan is The Author of The Bible.

In 2 Corinthians 11:14 Satan is the Light.

In Hebrews 2 Satan has the power of death.

In Revelation 12:9 Satan Has the Angels.

In Matthew 4:1-11 Satan was played with Jesus.

In Matthew 4:8 Satan teaches Jesus.

In Matthew 4:9 Satan controlled Jesus.

In Luke 4:5 Mark 1:13 Satan was joked with Jesus.

In genesis 6:6-7 God of the bible which is Satan said that he hate the people and he said that he does not change himself from hating all the creatures Malachi 3:6.

In 1 Samuel.16:14-16,23; 1 The Spirit of God is spirit of Satan.

In 2 Thess 2:11-12 God of the bible which is Satan lies and deceives.

In Exodus 15:3 God of The Bible which is Satan is Man of War.

In 1 Samuel 15:3 Revelations 19:1-21 God of the bible which is Satan Killed babies.

In Luke 12:49 God of the bible which is Satan brings fire.

In Jeremiah 13:14 Deuteronomy 7:16 1 Samuel 6:19 God of the bible which is Satan is destroyer.

In Matthew 10:34; Luke 2:14; 22:36 and Mark 9:50; John 14:27; 16:33; Acts 10:36 God of the bible which is Satan Came for Sword.

In Deuteronomy 20:16 God of the bible which is Satan Commands Only Killing Everyone and Everything.

So, Christians you are not worshiping God but Satan come to the real God Allah and worship Him who Satan cannot say nothing to Him:

The Only one God Allah said: O ye people! Eat of what is on earth, lawful and good; and do not follow the footsteps of the Satan, for he is to you an avowed enemy. For he commands you what is evil and shameful, and that ye should say of Allah that of which ye have no knowledge. Quran 2:168:169

The Qurโ€™an says, seek Allahโ€™s (Godโ€™s) protection from Satan the Rejected One.”

Nor is it (Quran) the word of a Satan accursed. Quran 81:25

Quran is from the lord of the worlds and Who knows the secret (that is) in the heavens and the earth:

This Quran is not such as can be produced by other than Allah. on the contrary it is a confirmation of (revelations) that went before it, and a fuller explanation of the Book – wherein there is no doubt – .

Was the devil on the cross Jesus?

Serpent is on cross

John 3:14

And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the son of man be lifted up:

Serpent is devil

And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.

And supper being ended, the devil having now put into the heart of Judas Iscariot, Simon’s son, to betray him.

Judas hung himself.

And he cast down the pieces of silver in the temple and departed and went and hanged himself.

Jesus changes his image and form.

Christians give us your explanation of these verses.

Mark 16:11-13

Common English Bible

11 But even after they heard the news, they didnโ€™t believe that Jesus was alive and that Mary had seen him.

12 After that he appeared in a different form to two of them who were walking along in the countryside. 13 When they returned, they reported it to the others, but they didnโ€™t believe them.

-Luke says they were prevented from recognizing him.

Luke 24:15-16

Common English Bible

15 While they were discussing these things, Jesus himself arrived and joined them on their journey. 16 They were prevented from recognizing him.

Why didn’t Mary recognize him thinking he was the gardener?

John 20:14-15

Common English Bible

14 As soon as she had said this, she turned around and saw Jesus standing there, but she didnโ€™t know it was Jesus.

15 Jesus said to her, โ€œWoman, why are you crying? Who are you looking for?


Do not rush to claim contradictions without completing reading the rest of the verses to complete the whole context. We must read a few verses in prefix and suffix to understand the verses in its complete context. The Quran is the word of Allah, free from any contradictions.
