Shaykh al-Islaam Ibn Taymiyyah said when asked about the Nusayris and the Druze:
These Duruziyyah and Nusayriyyah are disblievers by consensus of the Muslims, it is not permitted to eat from their slaughter, nor to marry their women and nor is jizyah coroborrated for them. For they are apostates from Islam, they are not Muslims, nor [are they] Jews and nor Christians. They do not affirm the obligation of the five prayers, and nor the obligation of the fast of Ramadan and nor the obligation of Hajj. Nor do they treat unlawful what Allaah and His Messenger made unlawful of dead meat and intoxicants and other than them. If they proclaim the two testimonials (of faith) alongside these beliefs, they are disbelievers by consensus of the Muslims.
And he also said:
And there entered amongst the Raafidah, the people of heresy and disbelief (zandaqah, ilhad) from the Nusayriyyah and the Ismaa'eeliyyah and their likes from the Qaraamite heretics and others who used to be in Khurasaan, Iraaq and Shaam (Syria). And the Raafidah are Jahmiyyah Qadariyyah and they have such lying and innovation and fabrication against Allaah and His Messenger which is much greater than what is found with the renegading Kharijites whom Alee, the chief of the believers and all of the Companions fought against due to the command of the Prophet (sallallaahu alayhi wasallam)... Majmoo' al-Fataawaa (28/529)
And he also has the following fatwa:
Question: A people from the subjects of a city held the doctrine of the Nusayriyyah. They then united behind a man and their views regarding him differed. Some said he is a deity (ilaah) and others amongst them claimed he is a sent prophet, and others amongst them claimed he is Muhammad bin al-Hasan - meaning the [awaited] Mahdi - and they ordered whoever they came across to prostrate to him. Alongside this they also announce the disbelief and revilement of the Companions, and they manifested rebellion, exiting from disobedience (to the authorities), and they were resolved to wage war. So is it permissible to fight them and to kill those who fight from them...
And he said in Minhaaj al-Sunnah (3/452):
The third angle: That everyone has come to know that the Ismaa'eeliyyah and Nusayriyyah are from the factions that outwardly proclaim Tashayyu' (Shi'ism), even though inwardly they are disbelievers, completely stripped of every religion. The Nusayriyyah are from the extremist Raafidah who claim the divinity of Ali, and they are more disbelieving than the Jews and Christians by agreement of the Muslims. Minhaj al-Sunnah (tahqiq, Mohammad Rashad Salim, 1406H, 3/452)
