Al-Ibadiyah, or al-Abadiyah, is one of the earliest Islamic sects, the foundation of which goes back to the first half of the first century H. The school took its name from 'Abdullah b. Ibad, one of its early theologians. The name Iba-d-lyah applies to a Mslim group which was considered by most writers as a moderate branch of the Kharijite movement. The adherents of this school still form a number of independent communities holding fast to its teachings. The largest of these lives today in "Uman and Masqat in South East Arabia. There are other minorities in Zanzibar off the east coast of Africa, in Jabal Nufusah and Zuwarah in Libya, in Jerba Island in Tunisia, and in Wad Mzab in Algeria. Very little is known about the Ibadlyah, their doctrines, origins and development. Modern European scholars have made useful contributions in the field of Ibadi studies but their studies were directed mainly to the history of the Ibadl communities or some aspects of their present social and religious life.
