Salam Aleikum Brothers, a group of Christians based in the opinion, of course, of the christians missionaries, claim that Harut and Marut are two ancient Armenian deities, worshipped by the Armenians before their conversion to Christianity. They are said to be assistants of the goddess Spandaramit. They were the special promotors of the productiveness and profitableness of the earth. Horot and Morot also appear in the Avesta as Haurvat (or Haurvatat) and Ameretat, "abundance" and "immortality". They says that this story was taken from hindues and armenian stories, which is the refutation of this? I think that the claim of taking from armenian gods is stupid, because in the time of Muhammad, those gods were not worshipped, literally, they did not exist, because Armenia had to that date, 600 years of Cristianity, which -securely- erased any trail of politheism and paganism; the claim of the Avesta (hindu scripture), I do not know, these claims were said by Clair Tisdall, and the page:

Explains why his claims resulted falses, because in his time, some discoveries had not been made, and those discoveries were fundamental against his claims.

HELP ME, PLEASE BROTHERS, THANKS, SALAM ALEIKUM.

Not sure about whether the figures mentioned were related or not. If they do, then Quran do mention about people taking angels as females. Some even worship them as female goddess.

In the Bundahishn, a Zoroastrian account of creation completed in the 12th century, Ameretat and Haurvatat appear—together with Spenta Armaiti (MP: Spendarmad), the third female Amesha Spenta—on the left hand of Ahura Mazda (Bundahishn 26.8)

Story of Harut and Marut as test to the people.
