    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    (Fatwa: 630/537/H=04/1435) The Ibadi sect which exists in Oman Sultanate is a branch of Khawarij sect which is out of the fold of Islam. Salah behind the imam of this belief is invalid. (Ahsanul Fatawa 1:198) So, you should perform salah individually.

    Allah (Subhana Wa Ta'ala) knows Best
