بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم
Hadhrat Mufti Rasheed Ahmad writes in Ahsanul Fatawa vol 1: ?We are unaware of what are the beliefs of Ibadhi sect of Muscat? We can have a say about them once we have their beliefs before us. However, the sect attributed to Abdullah bin Ibadh which is branch of Khawarij sect., their beliefs are found in the books. If this is the same sect, or they hold such beliefs, the salah is invalid behind them, therefore one should not follow such an imam. (1:198)
