Is it necessary to believe in prophets?

SHAFAQNA – Imam Reza (AS) was asked: Why is it Wajib (obligatory) to know and believe in prophets? Imam (AS) replied: When the human beings are not able to secure their own interests through their own talents and personal abilities, and as God is invisible to them, and because the human beings are not able to understand about God (comprehensively); there is no alternative but to refer to an infallible prophet in order that the messenger of God makes them aware of Divine Commands and Words; as well as making them aware of what is beneficial or harmful to them [1].
