baal in islam

In Islam, Baal is not a recognized figure or entity. The term “Baal” originates in ancient Semitic religions and refers to various deities worshiped by different civilizations in the ancient Near East. It was particularly associated with the Canaanite and Phoenician pantheons.
In Islamic theology, monotheism is central, and worshiping multiple deities or idols is strictly prohibited. Muslims believe in the oneness of God (Allah) and consider any form of polytheism as a grave sin.
The Islamic faith recognizes and emphasizes the importance of prophets, with Prophet Muhammad ﷺ being God’s final and most revered messenger. Islam’s primary religious text is the Quran, which contains the revelations received by Prophet Muhammadﷺ.
