The Straight Path

That Allah, Glorified and Exalted is He, says:

{And verily, this (i.e. Allah’s Commandments mentioned in the above two Ayas[1]) is my Straight Path, so follow it, and follow not (other) paths, for they will separate you away from His Path.} [Surah Al-An’am 6:153]

And Allah’s Straight Path is to carry out His commands, leave off His prohibitions and to believe in everything what the Messenger of Allah, may peace and blessings be upon him, came with, from beneficial knowledge, truthful information, legislations and rulings, outwardly and inwardly.

Allah says to His Prophet, may peace and blessings be upon him:

{And verily, you (O Muhammad, may peace and blessings be upon him) are indeed guiding (mankind) to the Straight Path (i.e. Allah’s religion of Islamic Monotheism).} [Surah Ash-Shura 42:52]

And thus He, Glorified is He, has made clear that through the revelation which He has revealed to His Prophet, may peace and blessings be upon him, from the Book and the Sunnah; the good and happy life comes about, and through it guidance and insight which lead to what Allah has prepared for His believing worshippers of bliss in the Hereafter, spring forth.

We ask Allah to grant that to us and all the Muslims, for He is the Guardian over and able to do that, and Allah knows best.[2]

Footnote by translator:
[1] Surah Al-An’am: 151. {Say (O Muhammad ): “Come, I will recite what your Lord has prohibited you from: Join not anything in worship with Him; be good and dutiful to your parents; kill not your children because of poverty – We provide sustenance for you and for them; come not near to Al-Fawahish (shameful sins, illegal sexual intercourse, etc.) whether committed openly or secretly, and kill not anyone whom Allah has forbidden, except for a just cause (according to Islamic law). This He has commanded you that you may understand.} 152. {And come not near to the orphan’s property, except to improve it, until he (or she) attains the age of full strength; and give full measure and full weight with justice. We burden not any person, but that which he can bear. And whenever you give your word (i.e. judge between men or give evidence, etc.), say the truth even if a near relative is concerned, and fulfill the Covenant of Allah, This He commands you, that you may remember.}
[2] The translation of the ayas are taken from ‘English translation of The Noble Qu’ran’ by Dr. Muhammad Taqi-ud Din al-Hilali and Dr. Muhammad Muhsin Khan.
