2 – And from `Ali b. Ibrahim from his father, and from `Abdullah b. as-Salt, all from Hammad b. `Isa from Hariz b. `Abdullah from Zurara from Abu Ja`far عليه السلام in a hadith wherein he said:
The summit of the affair, its hump, its key, the gate of things, and the satisfaction of the Rahman, is the obedience to the Imam after his recognition. Were a man to rise up (in) his night, fast (in) his day, give charity by all of his property, do hajj all of his age, and he did not recognize the walaya of the Wali of Allah and give loyalty to him, and that all of his acts be by his guidance to him, he has no right upon Allah in regards to his reward, and he is not from the people of Iman.
And al-Barqi narrated it in al-Mahasin from `Abdullah b. as-Salt by the isnad.

[298] 2 ـ وعن علي بن إبراهيم، عن أبيه وعن عبدالله بن الصلت جميعا، عن حماد بن عيسى، عن حريز بن عبدالله، عن زرارة، عن أبي جعفر ( عليه السلام ) ـ في حديث ـ قال: ذروة الأمر، وسنامه، ومفتاحه، وباب الأشياء، ورضى الرحمن، الطاعة للامام بعد معرفته، أما لو أن رجلا قام ليله، وصام نهاره، وتصدق بجميع ماله، وحج جميع دهره، ولم يعرف ولاية ولي الله فيواليه، ويكون جميع أعماله بدلالته إليه، ما كان له على الله حق في ثوابه، ولا كان من أهل الإيمان.
ورواه البرقي في ( المحاسن ) عن عبدالله بن الصلت بالإسناد .
