Who are the Mandaeans/Sabeans?



Sahih International

Indeed, those who believed and those who were Jews or Christians or Sabeans [before Prophet Muhammad] – those [among them] who believed in Allah and the Last Day and did righteousness – will have their reward with their Lord, and no fear will there be concerning them, nor will they grieve.

Shaykh Yasir Qadi speaks about the issue here: http://youtu.be/UaWVK-vD4_s?t=6m22s


*Of course I am not promoting their false beliefs. Just found it interesting, especially when they are mentioned in the Quran
