The narrator asked Imam Ja’far Sadiq (a.s.) the meaning of the saying of the Holy Prophet that one who dies without the recognition of Imam, dies the death of ignorance. Imam Ja’far Sadiq (a.s.) pointed to his chest and said, “When the state reaches here you will need it (recognition of Imam) much. Your thinking is good regarding this.”
Imām Ja'far ibn Muhammad al-Sādiq (a.s.)

“We are the Imams whose obedience is obligatory. One who denies us, will die as a Jew or a Christian. I swear by Allah, this earth is not deprived of a guiding Imam since the passing away of Prophet Adam (a.s.). They are proofs of Allah on His servants. Whoever kept away from them were destroyed and Allah guarantees salvation for those who obey them.”
Imām Ja'far ibn Muhammad al-Sādiq (a.s.)

Imam Muhammad Baqir (a.s.) narrates that the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.s.) said, “Allah, the Mighty and Sublime said: Whoever from the Muslim community obeys an unjust ruler not appointed by Allah, Allah will send chastisement on him even if there are good deeds of that community and even if the people are pious. Whoever from the Muslim community obeys the guide appointed by Allah, Allah will surely forgive him even if he has injustice and sins written in his scroll of deeds.”

Jabir ibn Abdullah Ansari (a.r.) reports, “I asked the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.s.) that I know Allah and His Prophet (s.a.w.s.), but I do not know the Ulil Amr.” The Holy Prophet (s.a.w.s.) replied, “They are my Caliphs, O! Jabir, and Imams of the Muslims after me. The first of them is Ali ibn Abi Talib (a.s.), then Hasan, then Husain, then Ali ibn Husain, then Muhammad bin Ali known in the Tawrat as Al-Baqir, thou wilt shortly meet him O Jabir; so when you meet him, convey to him my Salaam; then Ja’far ibn Muhammad, then Musa bin Ja’far, then Ali bin Musa, then Muhammad bin Ali, then Ali ibn Muhammad, then Hasan bin Ali, then my name sake and one having my kunniyat. They are the decisive argument of Allah on this earth and the mainstay of His religion among mankind. The last of them is the one whom Allah will give victory over the east of the earth and the west; and it is he who will disappear from his Shias and friends. A long concealment, during which no one will remain firm in the belief of his Imamat except those whose hearts Allah has tested for faith.” Jabir (a.r.) asked, “Will his Shias derive benefit from him during his concealment?” “Yes”, said the Apostle of Allah, “By him Who raised me up with Prophethood,verily they will obtain light from his ‘Noor’ and will benefit by his Wilayat during his concealment, like people derive benefit from the sun when it is covered with clouds.”
