Currently, there is an ongoing debate as to whether the Allah of the Qur'an is in fact a pagan Arab moon god of pre-Islamic times. The idea has been mentioned in literature for more than a century, but only recently has the theory been seriously promoted. The theory is briefly presented in some of Dr. Robert Morey's books and pamphlets written since 1991.
Most academic theories are discussed for decades before they are either abandoned as dead ends or adopted as truth. The proponents and opponents of this theory both readily admit they are awaiting further research and archaeology to vindicate their claims. Many have resorted to making hasty accusations in testy debates. This may make it difficult to distinguish between what is fact and what is pure rhetoric. We, however, invite the reader to take a scholarly "wait and see" approach to this subject.
