Thanks for your question

according to Quran (5:3) and lots of Ahadith the best and most important blessing that is given to Muslims is Wilaya (leadership of Ahl bayt (as)).

Allah swt in 5:3 says “… Today I have perfected your religion for you, and I have completed My blessing upon you, and I have approved Islam as your religion…”

Based on this Aya, Imamah is the reason for perfection of religion, and completion of divine blessings. So it must the best bounty given by Allah to people.

We can understand the same thing from Ahadith as well, for example Imam Musa Al-Kazim a.s narrates a hadith from Imam al-Sadiq a.s about the great blessing in 102:8 and mentions that the greatest blessing upon mankind is knowing and following Imams (a.s).
