The Prophet Mohamad (pbuh&hp) and his Progeny are the salvation for the world

Our Master the scholar of Islam, Imam Majd Aldeen Almuayadi (peace be Upon him) once said:

I swear by Allah the Most High and Most Grand: A swear that Allah the All Knowledgeable and All Informed knows its sincerity. That we do not wish or ask for except to seek the judgment of Allah and to respect the decree of Allah. And if we knew that the truth was with the ends of Allah's creations from the Arabs, the None-Arabs, Qurashians, or Ethiopians we will accept him and accept what he brings us and will not be too proud, instead we will be his helpers and followers. Let the contemplator say what he pleases . And put in mind only his Lord. And fear only that he might commit sin. The Judge is Allah and the day is the date of Resurrection. To Allah all matters return.
