Some of the Hadith about worship and prayers are weak in chain, but those who trust a’immah with whole heart and soul, they only benefit from it. Those doubtful weak faith people are deprived of greater good. 
As it is Said: “On the authority of Tamim Al-Dari (may Allah be pleased with him)
The Prophet (peace be upon him) said, “The religion is naseehah (sincerity).” We said, “To whom?” He (peace be upon him) said, “To Allah, His Book, His Messenger, and to the leaders of the Muslims and their common folk.”
[Muslim]
 
So there is a Divine Wisdom and reason why some Hadith are weak but the A’immah narrated it and followed it. On the other side, those heart that are sick question the legitimacy of this Hadith and ignore it, they don’t really believe in the imams, they are weak in Faith. So following Hadiths without following imams is a corruption. Because the chain of imams and their legal opinion is as important as the chain of Hadith itself. So even if there is a weak chain, what Imams said about the Hadith make it valid to be followed for the people who love to worship their Creator abundantly!
