Reading Time: < 1 minute

قَالَ عَلِيٌّؑ لِرَسُولِ اللهِ ﷺ يَا رَسُولَ اللهِ اَ مِنَّا الْهُدَاةُ اَمْ مِنْ غَيْرِنَا قَالَ لَا بَلْ مِنَّا الْهُدَاةُ اِلَى يَوْمِ الْقِيَامَةِ بِنَا اسْتَنْقَذَهُمُ اللهُ مِنْ ضَلَالَةِ الشِّرْكِ وَ بِنَا يَسْتَنْقِذُهُمُ اللهُ مِنْ ضَلَالَةِ الْفِتْنَةِ وَ بِنَا يُصْبِحُونَ اِخْوَاناً بَعْدَ الضَّلَالَةِ

Ameerul Momineen (peace be upon him) asked, “O Messenger of Allah! Are the guides from us or from other than us?” He (peace be upon him and his holy progeny) replied, “No. The guides are from us till the Day of Judgment. Through us, Allah will liberate them from the deviation of polytheism, through us, Allah will liberate them from the deviation of mischief and they will become brothers after deviation through us.”
