When in doubt, wiki!

"...The confusion of Sabaeans with Sabians began with Marmeduke Pickthall's spelling mistake in his translation of the Qur'an. The word "Sabaeans" comes from a completely different root spelling beginning with the letter "Sad" instead of the letter "Sin". The Sabaeans were in fact the people of ancient Saba in Yemen who have been discredited by scholars as to having any connection to the Sabians of the Qur'an except for their Ansar tribe which practiced Qur'?nic Sabianism (Seboghatullah: "submersion in the divine mystery")..."

Off the top of my head, I thought of three spellings I've seen (there might be more). Click on these links to search for the keyword at this site. I know there's at least one document on the site specifically about Sabeanism, though I don't recall how it's spelled.
