Some of Al-Habashi's (Abdullah Al-Harari - Al-Habashi) Fatawa ( Beliefs and practice)
1- He said the first sighting on the foreign woman is allowed even if it takes too long time (look Boghyat Al-Taleb P.224, 287). As you know the prophet S.A.W said the first sight for you and the second is not allowed -or as what the prophet said- that means if you saw by accident a foreign woman that would be sin but if you continue that mean it on purpose which not allowed, but see how Al-Habashi play by the Hadeth. Also, he allowed for a woman to go out her home wearing beautiful clothes and using a perfume for foreign people to be beautiful is their eyes (look Sareeh Al-Bayan P. 186)
2- He made a Fitnah here in US and Canada by ordering his follower to change their Qiblah (the direction of prayer), then they changed their Qiblah against all Muslims in US and Canada by 90 degree. Also, in Lebanon, they have different Qiblah from other Muslims there, they changed it to the North. And they did not pray with Muslims in Muslims' Masajids.
3- He and his followers use magic (Al-Sher), and they used to give their followers to let them follow them without any objection, they use some tablets for that purpose they called it promise's tablets (Huboob Al-Ahb). Also, they have some magic paper they used for magic purpose.
Shikh Abdul-Rahman Demashqiyyah (which I got these information from his book) said one of the Habashi people threatened me if I continue talking about them they will use magic against me, and he (Shikh Abdul-Rahman) said Allah will protect me from them insha' Allah, Also, Allah said in the Quran " They could not thus harm anyone except by Allah's leave" (Al-Imran verse 102).
4- He pretends that, he has the prophet's finger ring, and he shows it to the people, and they jump to kiss it.
5- They -Ahbash- sing and dance in their parties with such undress women, in spite of that, they said Allah gives them Karamat!
6- They enforce Masajids' Imam in Lebanon to let them -Ahbash- to give lessons in the Masjid, if the Imam reject that, they did not let him to make any lesson in his Masjid, and they try to talk in loudly to prevent him -Imam- to give his lesson, that why Lebanon magazine talked in one issue about this problem (look Shira magazine issue No. 574 "Fighting on Masajids in Lebanon). Some times they use gun to do what they want in any Masjid they want, for that reason - shooting by guns- some Masajids in Lebanon were closed.
7- They have big maestro group (music group) such as James Last, they singing and dancing with women, and they use it to pray to Allah! because this is ??? ISLAMIC MUSIC ???. If you interest to see them just go to any Video store in Lebanon and ask about that. Also, in their parties they sing for the rulers in Lebanon.
8- Al-Habashi divides the Islamic resources to facts, Share'ah, inner (Baten), outer (thaher), he pretends that, he gets the knowledge from Allah by some kind of knowledge its name (Al-Elm Al-Ladoni), also, he pretends that, he meets Al-Khuder and some other Shikhs in their graves, and he talks the promise from them!. Also, he believes that, they (the people who usually meets them) have ability and control on the universe according to their levels, some of them hold the earth, others knows the unseen!
Did you believe these garbage?. Do not worry according to Imam Shafi "if someone become Sofi in the morning, at the noon he will become stupid, also, no one will stay with Sofis forty days and he will lose his mind". (look Tlbes Ables P. 371)
9- He with his followers believe Refa'ei Tareqah and try to distribute it. Do not forget that, Refa'ei Tareqah believe as what Shieah believe in twelve Imams.
10- They try to trick the people in their books in so many fields and ways. For example, if look at some of them books when they talk about some problem they mention their Shikh as old scholars, for example they stated in one of their books " Hafiz Al-Abdali said .. etc." when read that you will think this is a one of our very old scholar such as Hafiz Ibn Hajar or Hafiz Al-Thahabi, but the fact is that this is one of their Shaikhs.
If you look at this group you will adept about them even if you do know anything about them. Look how many great association they have in Lebanon. Also, when you look at the rulers in Lebanon you will find them like this group and fight with it. This gives evidence of that they have some political goal as well as beliefs goals. In these days we find that, the rulers not in Lebanon only(prime minister, Lebanon's president, and other Christian's leaders) but in other country like Syria, Yaser Arafat, and others, they are very concern about killing Nizar Kabani the Leader of Islamic charitable association (one of the Habashi's associations), and they ( rulers - Muslims and Christians) work together to find who killed Nizar Kabani. The question is that ( if we suppose Nizar Kabani is a Muslim leader) Is this first Muslim leader (or at least Muslim) was killed. Why they really concern about his assassination. Why the Lebanon government for the first time try to enter Palestine camps to get the person who is suspect for the assassinate. How many Muslim leader was killed and know one was care. All these questions and others give us an evidence for that the rulers know who is Habashi and they know too who will help them to break Islamic Daw'ah.
