Walaykom AsSalam.    No, no ... not at all the 'wahabi' type.   I would say quite the opposite. 

Ibadi Muslims are a small community in Algeria (near Ghardaia, the largest town of the Mʾzab Oasis in north-central Algeria) who believe in the primacy of the Noble Quran rather than in loyalty to corrupt, so-called Muslim authorities. Yet they are often referred to as "Khawarij" (renegades).  If the approach of the Ibadis was the other way round, they would not be called "renegades."   What a world !!  

These people are a simple lot. Ibadi mosques are renowned for their simplicity and austerity.

The following image shows two Ibadi Mosques in Algeria.   Just look at the amazing modesty, simple and neat.  Alhumdulilah.

Translation of French caption
Ibadi mosques are renowned for their simplicity and austerity. Rejecting the ostentation of wealth and pomp, the Ibadites of the Maghreb preferred to build modest mosques trying to maintain perfect equality between all believers.

They are a very peaceful lot yet unfortunately a somewhat marginalized segment of the population in Algeria.

Some claim Ibadis were opposed to the rule of Imam Ali.  However, the same sources also say ibadis were strongly opposed to the Ommayads and during the rule of the last Ommayad Caliph, they fought a battle with against the Ommayads in which the Ibadis were defeated.  

There are conflicting opinions about the founder of the Ibadi movement.  Some say it was Abdullah bin Ibad of Banu Tamim tribe and he may have been either from Arabia, Jordan or Iraq.  Some others claim the movement's founder was Jabir bin Zaid from Oman.  But since the  movement and ideology started from Basra, Iraq, titled "Ibadi," most likely Abdullah bin Ibad was the founder belonging to Iraq.  The person from Oman probably came around later.  There are quite a few Ibadis in Oman too but the ones in Algeria are more on the forefront in regard to the Ibadi topic.
