عَنْ زُرَارَةَ عَنْ اَبِي عَبْدِ اللهِؑ فِي حَدِيثٍ لَهُ فِي الْحُسَيْنِ بْنِ عَلِيٍّؑ يَقُولُ فِي آخِرِهِ وَ لَوْ لَا مَنْ عَلَى الْاَرْضِ مِنْ حُجَجِ اللهِ لَنَفَضَتِ الْاَرْضُ مَا فِيهَا وَ اَلْقَتْ مَا عَلَيْهَا اِنَّ الْاَرْضَ لَا تَخْلُو سَاعَةً مِنَ الْحُجَّةِ

Zoraarah reports from Imam Abu Abdillah (al-Sadeq a.s.) in a tradition from Imam Ali Ibn al-Husain (peace be upon him), who says at the end of the narration,

‘And if none from the divine proofs would be present in the earth, the earth would quash whatever was in it and throw (as in an earthquake) whatever was upon it. Surely, the earth cannot be devoid of a divine proof even for a moment.”
