Those who befriend the enemies of the Ahle Bait (peace be upon them) and make enemies with the lovers of the Ahle Bait (peace be upon them) are worse than the Anti-Christ (al-Dajjal)

عَنِ الْحَسَنِ بْنِ عَلِيٍّ الْخَزَّازِ قَالَ سَمِعْتُ الرِّضَا ع يَقُولُ‏ اِنَّ مِمَّنْ يَنْتَحِلُ مَوَدَّتَنَا اَهْلَ الْبَيْتِ- مَنْ هُوَ اَشَدُّ فِتْنَةً عَلَى شِيعَتِنَا مِنَ‏ الدَّجَّالِ‏- فَقُلْتُ بِمَا ذَا قَالَ بِمُوَالاةِ اَعْدَائِنَا وَ مُعَادَاةِ اَوْلِيَائِنَا اِنَّهُ اِذَا كَانَ كَذَلِكَ اخْتَلَطَ الْحَقُّ بِالْبَاطِلِ وَ اشْتَبَهَ الْاَمْرُ فَلَمْ يُعْرَفْ مُؤْمِنٌ مِنْ مُنَافِقٍ.

Al-Husain Ibn Ali al-Khazzaaz narrates that he heard Imam Reza (peace be upon him) say, “Certainly, from the one who claims to love us Ahl al-bait (peace be upon him) is he who is a greater mischief on our Shiahs than the Anti-Christ (Dajjaal).” I (the narrator) asked, “How?” He (peace be upon him) replied,

“By befriending our enemies and making enemies with our Shiahs. When this will be the situation, truth will become mixed with falsehood and the affair (Imamate) will become confused. Thus, a believer will not be distinguished from a hypocrite.”
