How to know God?

SHAFAQNA – Imam Hussain (AS) was asked: How to know God? Imam (AS) replied: The way to know and obey God is that the people of the time know their own Imam of the time, and obey him as it is Wajib to do so [1]. It is narrated from the Prophet of Islam (PBUH) who said: Whoever dies without knowing his/her own Imam of the time, has died in ignorance [2]. In Ayah 71 of Surah Al-Isra, Allah (SWT) said: “On the Day of Judgment, each group will be called with its own respective Imam.”
