Wadd (Arabic: ود‎{{#invoke:Category handler|main}}) "Love and Friendship", known variously as Ilumquh, ʻAmm and Sīn, was the Minaean pagan moon god. Snakes were believed to be a sacred symbol to Wadd. He is mentioned in the Qur'an (71:23) as a deity of the time of the Prophet Noah.

And they say: By no means leave your gods, nor leave Wadd, nor Suwa'; nor Yaghuth, and Ya'uq and Nasr. (Qur'an 71:23)

The Temple dedicated to Wadd was demolished on the orders of Muhammad, and those who resisted the demolition were killed, in the Expedition of Khalid ibn al-Walid (2nd Dumatul Jandal).<ref>{{#invoke:citation/CS1|citation |CitationClass=book }} Original is from the University of Virginia</ref><ref>{{#invoke:citation/CS1|citation |CitationClass=book }}</ref>
