It is reported that Al-Hasan b. Al-Hasan b. ‘Alî b. Abî Tâlib – Allâh have mercy on him – said to a person from the Râfidah:

Love us, but if we disobey Allâh, then hate us; for if Allâh was going to benefit anyone because of his relation to the Messenger of Allâh – peace and blessings be upon him, without obedience [to Allâh], He would have benefitted the mother and father [of the Prophet].

Al-Dhahabî, Siyar A’lâm Al-Nubalâ` 4:486.
