Moshabbehites or Assimilators, a heretical sect of the Mohammedans; so called because they hold to a resemblance between God and his creatures, supposing him to be a figure composed of members or parts, each spiritual or corporeal, and capable of local motion, of ascent and descent, etc. Some of this sect believe that the divine nature may be united with the human in the same person, for they grant it possible that God may appear in a human form, as Gabriel did; and to confirm this opinion, they allege Mohammed's words "that he saw the Lord in a most beautiful form, and Moses talking with God face to face." See Broughton, Bibliotheca Historico-Sacra, 2:144.
