The ‘Ajradiyyah Allowed Incest

بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

The Khwarij sect, the ‘Ajradiyyah, are historically related to ‘Abd ar-Rahman ibn ‘Ajrad.  They are a composite grouping of many subsects, collectively known as the Maymuniyyah.  They considered it permissible for a man to marry the daughters of his sons and the daughters of his daughters, as well as the daughters of his brothers and the daughters of his sisters.  They also claimed that Surah Yusuf is not part of the Qur’an.
