What do you consider of the sect Habashiyyah that are followers of ’Abdullâh al-Hararî al-Habashî? What is their doctrine?

Shaykh al-Fawzân:

Their doctrine is grave-worship and associating partners with Allah (Shirk billâh‘azza wa jall). He is a grave-worshiper, and refuge is sought with Allâh, and a Sûfî. al-Lajnah ad-Dâ’imah did a clarification in which they refute this deviant sect and clarify its methodology.

There is a doctor’s dissertation, in two volumes, about the Ahbâsh-sect and its methodology. A Syrian brother by the name ‘Abdur-Rahmân Dimashqiyyah [Dimashqiah] has likewise written a book about the Ahbâsh-sect. Greater and smaller books have thusly been written about them.

In conclusion, they are a Sûfî-sect that engages in Shirk and grave-worship.
