The Ibaadi sect is one of the misguided sects, because of
their hatred, enmity and rebellion against ‘Uthmaan ibn ‘Affaan and ‘Ali
(may Allaah be pleased with them), and it is not permissible to pray behind
them. End quote.
In Fataawa al-Shaykh Muhammad ibn Ibraaheem (13/30) it
says that the testimony of an Ibaadi is not acceptable according to
There are clear texts
which describe how a woman’s guardians should make a good choice of husband
for her. That includes ensuring that his religious commitment and character
are acceptable. What kind of pleasing religious commitment can there be in
those who follow misguided sects, who believe in rebelling against the
rulers of the Muslims, who believe that the Qur’aan was created and that the
one who commits a major sin is a kaafir, and who deny that we will see
Allaah in the Hereafter?
It was narrated that Abu Hurayrah (may Allaah be pleased with
him) said: The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be
upon him) said: “If there comes to you one with whose religious commitment
and character you are pleased, then marry (your daughter or female relative
under your care) to him, for if you do not, there will be fitnah in the land
and much mischief.” Narrated by al-Tirmidhi, 1084; Ibn Maajah, 1967. Classed
as hasan by Shaykh al-Albaani in al-Silsilah al-Saheehah, 1022.
Sunni women should not
be given in marriage to followers of innovation, because the husband has a
great deal of influence over his wife, and he may influence her to adopt his
beliefs, so she moves from the saved group to one of the misguided sects.
And Allaah knows best.
