Question I recently came across a verse in the Quran wherein mention of the Sabi-un (الصابئين) were made. Are there any narrations either from Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam), the Sahabah (radiyallahu ‘anhum), or the ‘Ulama (rahimahumullah) about this religion or these people? Are they considered amongst the Ahlul Kitab or amongst those who were on a correct creed?
