Aloza (or Alozza)

Aloza (Or Alozza)

(the powerful) was the name of a goddess worshipped by several tribes in Arabia, especially at Nakla, near Mecca. A tree (Akazie) was dedicated to her. The Arab Dalem was the first to dedicate this tree to her. He also built her a temple, which was said to give out musical sounds when any one entered it. When Mohammed introduced Islam, he destroyed the temple and the tree, and slew the priestess.
