let us see a beautiful hadeeth from amali sheikh mufeed

He said: “Abul Qasim Ja’far b. Muhammad b. Qawlawayh reported to me from Muhammad b. Yaqoob al-Kulayni, from Ali b. Ibrahim, from his father, from Hammad b. Isa from Huraiz, from Zurarah b. A’ayan, who reported that:

Abu Ja’far Muhammad b. Ali b. al-Husain (peace be upon them all) said: “The most important matter, the best, the key, the entrance to all affairs and the pleasure of the Gracious Lord lie in obedience to the Imam after gaining his maarifat”

Then he said: Allah, Most High, says (in the Qur’an):
“whoever obeys the messenger, has obeyed Allah.”

then he said
” whoever turns away: ‘We have not sent you (Muhammad) as a keeper over them.’
” (that is, it is not your duty to protect them)
