Imam Baqir (as) said “The obedience of the Imam following His recognition is the loftiest apex and peak, the most worthy of stations, the key to the religion, the gate way and door to the affairs and pleasure of the merciful (Allah). Further more, if a man keeps standing the whole night for prayers, keeps on fasting during the day, gives out all his wealth as alms, performs Hajj all the years of his life and does not recognize the guardianship of the saint of Allah so as to love him and perform all his practices under his guidance and leadership, he does not have any right out of His rewards and he is not from among the faithful.”[i]
