al-salamu 3alikum ya ustaz 3Ali

If you read page 194 in Crone's "Meccan Trade" she wrote:

>Wellhausen may of course be wrong; may be a high god in Arabia did benefit from such links. But if so we are back at the problem of why Allah was made to share these links with Hubal.

(Also read pages 187-195)

This alone makes me wonder, So how do you explain that Allah and Hubal shared such links? And are Allah and Hubal one and the same deity? It very well could be true, but like anything else in the history of early Islam one can never be sure.

Thank you very much for a very stimulating post
