The deity "Allah" was worshiped at Kaaba already before Islam as the one God. Allah as the highest God was stimulated by the arrival of Judaism and Christianity in the Arabian peninsula.

Islam: In the Qur'an, Allah is the highest divine being. Allah has made himself known to Muhammad and even prophets before him. Allah in the Qur'an differs from the earlier Allah that all mankind must follow the divine law. Allah became the creator God, governor of his creation and judge in the hereafter.
