Quzah

Quza? (Arabic: ) is a pre-Islamic Arab god of weather,[1] worshiped by the people of Muzdalifah. The pre-Islamic rite of the Ifada celebrated after the September equinox was performed facing the direction of Quzah's sanctuary.[2][3] A lasting reference to Quzah is the term qaws Quza? ( ), "Bow of Quzah", which became the Arabic term for rainbow.[4]
