Al-Qaum (Arabic: ‎) was the Nabataean god of war and the night, and guardian of caravans.[1]

Large numbers of inscriptions bearing his name have been found, and archaeologists believe that he was a major god of the Nabataean pantheon.[1]

Al-Qaum however also literally translates to 'the people' in formal Arabic, it might just be referring to a group of people at the time as an entity.[]

In popular culture

A black metal band in Saudi Arabia, Al-Namrood, uses this pantheon as inspiration for its music.[2]

Al-Qaum is the name of one of the Exodan fleet spaceships in the 2018 novel Record of a Spaceborn Few by Becky Chambers.
