عَنْ اَبِي جَعْفَرٍؑ اِلَّا مَنْ تابَ وَ آمَنَ وَ عَمِلَ صالِحاً قَالَ وَ اللهِ لَوْ اَنَّهُ تَابَ وَ آمَنَ وَ عَمِلَ صَالِحاً وَ لَمْ يَهْتَدِ اِلَى وَلَايَتِنَا وَ مَوَدَّتِنَا وَ مَعْرِفَةِ فَضْلِنَا مَا اَغْنَى عَنْهُ ذٰلِكَ شَيْئاً

Imam Muhammad al-Baqir (peace be upon him) says concerning the word of Allah, “Surely I will forgive the one who repented, believed and did good deeds…” ‘By Allah! If he repented, believed and did good deeds but was not guided towards our mastership, our love and the recognition of our excellence, none of the above will be of any use to him’.”
