Yagh%C5%ABth

Yagh?th (Arabic "He Helps" ?) was a deity referred to in the Quran (71:23) as a god of the era of the Prophet Noah:

And they say: Forsake not your gods, nor forsake Wadd, nor Suwa', nor Yaghuth and Ya'uq and Nasr. (Qur'an 71:23)

Maulana Muhammad Ali adds the following commentary on the passage:

The names of the idols given here are those which existed in Arabia in the Prophet's time, and hence some critics call it an anachronism. [...] According to I?Ab, the idols of Noah's people were worshipped by the Arabs, Wadd being worshipped by Kalb, Suw by Hudhail, Yagh?th by Mur?d, Yaq by Hamad?n and Nasr by ?imyar (B. 65:lxxi, 1). The commentators say that Wadd was worshipped in the form of a man, Suw in that of a woman, Yagh?th in that of a lion, Yaq in that of a horse and Nasr in that of an eagle (Rz).[1]
