See here for some details, may be of help. Brother Muadh has also made mention of them as a deviant sect in the Qiblah discussions.

I found some disturbing links

the-levant.com/ahbash-ideology-evolution/

Regarding Al-Ahbash position towards the Shiite he said that they are part of the Muslim nation despite disagreements, stressing that the love of the family of the Prophet Muhammad is a religious duty.

muslimmatters.org/2013/01/03/ethiopian-muslims-religious-...

UCSRIF submits in its findings that since July 2011, the Ethiopian government has sought to force a change in the sect of Islam practiced nationwide and has punished clergy and laity who have resisted. Muslims throughout Ethiopia have been arrested during peaceful protests.

To combat what the authorities say are the affects of the ideology of the Shabab in neighboring Somalia, the government has imported al-Ahbash leaders from Lebanon to train Ethiopian imams and Islamic school educators on that sect’s beliefs.Anyone who refused to be trained or teach al-Ahbash has been dismissed from their positions and their schools and mosques closed. This is a great concern to the Muslims globally, as the Ahbash are not viewed as mainstream Islam by Islamic scholars from a variety of theological leanings. Historically, it is not a religion practiced in Ethiopia.

The Al-Ahbash are also known as the Association of Islamic Charitable Projects in Lebanon which was founded by Abdullah ibn Muhammad al Hirari, nicknamed ’al Habashi’, after his Ethiopian roots.Even though Al-Ahbash claim on their website that they reject “the takfir ideologies that denounce Muslims as infidels”, what is happening in masajid in Ethiopia is quite the opposite, say Ethiopian Muslims in America who still have relatives and friends there.

“They [Al-Ahbash] do not consider anyone else Muslims, they are making everyone retake their shahadah in the masajid,” stressed Imam Mohammed.”

Wa alaykum salam,

It is a group that 1) sees Muaawiah RA negatively 2) consider Ibn Taymiyyah RA as a non muslim and tests people's iman with it 3) make a fuss on their interpretation of qibla direction and 4) near where I live their centre is known for other weird behaviours one would not expect from so called traditional muslims

I have read they have Shia tendencies and are pro Syria. Does that mean Pro assad?
