He is not recognized but via Him


باب أنه لا يعرف الا به 

He is not recognized but via Him


محمد بن إسماعيل، عن الفضل بن شاذان، عن صفوان بن يحيى، عن منصور ابن حازم قال: قلت لابي عبدالله (عليه السلام): إني ناظرت قوما فقلت لهم: إن الله جل جلاله أجل وأعز وأكرم من أن يعرف بخلقه بل العباد يعرفون بالله، فقال: رحمك الله.

Muhammad b. Isma`il from al-Fadl b. Shadhan from Safwan b. Yahya from Mansur b. Hazim.

He said: I said to Abu `Abdillah عليه السلام: Verily Allah, glorious is His glory, is more glorious and mightier and nobler than that He be recognized via His Creation. Rather, the servants are recognized via Allah. So He said: May Allah have mercy on you. (al-Kafi, Volume 1, hadith 225)
