عَنِ الْمُعَلَّى بْنِ خُنَيْسٍ عَنْ اَبِي عَبْدِ اللهِ ع‏ فِي قَوْلِ اللهِ عَزَّ وَ جَلَ‏ وَ مَنْ اَضَلُّ مِمَّنِ اتَّبَعَ هَواهُ بِغَيْرِ هُدىً‏ مِنَ‏ اللهِ‏ يَعْنِي‏ مَنْ‏ يَتَّخِذُ دِينَهُ‏ رَأْيَهُ‏ بِغَيْرِ هُدَى اَئِمَّةٍ مِنْ اَئِمَّةِ الْهُدَى.

Mualla Ibn Khunais reports from Imam Abu Abdillah [al-Sadeq a.s.] concerning the word of Allah – Mighty and Majestic be He – “And who is more deviated than the one who follows his carnal desires instead of guidance from Allah” means

“Whoever takes his religion whimsically without a guided Imam from the Imams of guidance (i.e. an Imam appointed by Allah.”
