عَنْ اَبِي عَبْدِ اللهِ ع قَالَ سَمِعْتُهُ يَقُولُ‏ أُمِرَ النَّاسُ بِمَعْرِفَتِنَا وَ الرَّدِّ اِلَيْنَا وَ التَّسْلِيمِ لَنَا ثُمَّ قَالَ وَ اِنْ صَامُوا وَ صَلَّوْا وَ شَهِدُوا اَنْ لَا اِلَهَ اِلَّا اللهُ وَ جَعَلُوا فِي‏ اَنْفُسِهِمْ‏ اَنْ‏ لَا يَرُدُّوا اِلَيْنَا كَانُوا بِذَلِكَ مُشْرِكِينَ.

Imam Sadeq (peace be upon him) said:

It has been ordained for the people to acquire our recognition, refer towards us in their problems and submit to our command. If people decide to fast, pray, testify to monotheism but refuse to turn to us in their problems then they will be termed polytheists.
