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.

The Nusayriyyah, they are the followers Abu Shu'ayb Muhammad bin Nusayr and he was from the extremists who used to say Ali was a deity... Majmoo' al-Fataawaa (35/161)

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...

The answer: All praise is due to Allaah, it is obligatory to fight against them so long as they are mumtani'een (do not affirm and accept that the Shari'ah is binding upon them) until they make iltizaam of the legislative symbols (sharaa'i) of Islaam (meaning, affirm and accept that they are bound by the Shariah). For the Nusayriyyah are from the greatest in disbelief amongst mankind, they are declared disbelievers without them following the likes of this dajjaal (great liar), how then when they follow the likes of this dajjaal. They are apostates and are the most evil of people in apostasy. Those who fight amongst them are to be fought against and their wealth is taken as booty...

... And the Nusayriyyah do not hide their affair, rather they are known to all of the Muslims that they do not pray the five prayers, they do not fast the month of Ramadan, and nor do they make pilgrimage to the House, and nor do they give the zakah, they do not affirm the obligation of [any of] that and they delare lawful intoxicants and other such unlawful things. They believe that the deity is Ali bin Abi Talib, and they say:

We testify that there is no deity except Haydarah (Alee) ...
And there is no veil over him except Muhammad al-Sadiq al-Amin
And there is on path to him except Salman [possessor] of strong power

And as for when they do not proclaim [the doctrine of] al-Rafd and that this liar is the awaited Mahdi, but make imtinaa' (deny that they are bound by the Shariah), then they are to be fought also, but here, they are fought as the renegading Kharijites are fought, those whom Alee (radiallaahu anhu) fought upon the command of the Messenger of Allaah (sallallaahu alayhi wasallam)... Majmoo' al-Fataawaa (28/555)

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)
