arabxetex is not the source of the problem, it only reveals that
mathspec is doing something silly. It redefines \RequirePackage so
that every \RequirePackage{amsmath} leads to an error:



This is cleary a fault in mathspec. Make a bug report.

To get around the problem, you can reset the original definition
after loading mathspec:

\let\RequirePackage\original at RequirePackage
