عَنْ سَمَاعَةَ بْنِ مِهْرَانَ قَالَ: سَاَلْتُ اَبَا عَبْدِ اللهِ ع عَنْ قَوْلِ اللهِ- فَلْيَعْمَلْ عَمَلًا صالِحًا وَ لا يُشْرِكْ بِعِبادَةِ رَبِّهِ اَحَدًا قَالَ الْعَمَلُ الصَّالِحُ الْمَعْرِفَةُ بِالْاَئِمَّةِ ع- وَ لا يُشْرِكْ بِعِبادَةِ رَبِّهِ اَحَدًا التَّسْلِيمُ لِعَلِيٍّ ع- لَا يُشْرِكُ‏ مَعَهُ‏ فِي‏ الْخِلَافَةِ مَنْ‏ لَيْسَ‏ لَهُ ذَلِكَ وَ لَا هُوَ مِنْ اَهْلِهِ.

Sama’ah Ibn Mehraan reports, “I asked (Imam) Abu Abdillah (al-Sadeq a.s.) about the word of Allah, ‘…then he must perform righteous action and not associate anybody in the worship of his Lord (Surah Kahf (18): Verse 110)’. He (peace be upon him) informed,

‘Righteous Action implies the recognition of the Imams (peace be upon them) and not associate anyone in the worship of his Lord means to submit to Ali (peace be upon him) and not associate anyone in Caliphate who is not for it and does not deserve it’.”
