Infallible Imam rejects the Ijtihad of other Infallible Imam and orders him to leave it

al-Salamu `Aleykum,

From the book al-Kafi 2/87:

علي بن إبراهيم ، عن أبيه ، عن ابن أبي عمير ، عن حفص بن البختري وغيره عن أبي عبد الله ( عليه السلام ) قال : اجتهدت في العبادة وأنا شاب ، فقال لي أبي : يا بني دون ما أراك تصنع ، فإن الله عز وجل إذا أحب عبدا رضي عنه باليسير

[`Ali bin Ibrahim from his father from ibn abi `Umair from Hafs bin al-Bukhturi and others from abi `Abdillah (as): When I was a young man I used to exaggerate in acts of worship, so my dad (al-Baqir) told me: O son, do not do this, if Allah loves a slave he will be pleased with what little he offers.”]

-al-Majlisi: “Hasan like Sahih” Mir’at-ul-`Uqool 8/110.
-al-Behbudi: Sahih al-Kafi 1/77.
-al-Najafi in al-Mawsou`ah: “The narration is authentic” 1/390.
