Narrated : Abdullah ibn Mas'ud
(peace_be_upon_him) drew a line for us and then said: That is the path shown by
Allah. Then he drew several other lines on his right and left sides and said:
These are the paths on every side of which there is a devil calling towards it.
He then recited this verse: `Verily this path of Mine is straight so adhere it.'
Transmitted by Ahmad, Nasa'i and Darimi.
THE STRAIGHT PATH
He Rasulallah (sallallahu 'alaihi wassalam) once drew a line,
The man so great so sublime.
And he (sallallahu 'alaihi wassalam) said,
“This is my Path”
All other trails obtain Allah’s Wrath.
he drew some more lines joining that line
A devil sitting on each of these,
calling people to join.
So people, never jaywalk leaving the True Way.
If you do, your own soul you betray.
Such an easy and clear path he
The Mercy of Allah on which is bestowed.
So dear people why
should one stray?
When the road to success is before us lay.
Straight Path of Prophet (sallallahu 'alaihi wassalam) is our only way,
other alleys, short cuts, trails etc goes astray.
Hold on with your molar
teeth on this path was his advice,
Only fools ignore it, and the one that
heeds is wise.
Hammam narrated that Hudhayfah said, "O Group of al-Qurra', follow the
straight path, for then you have taken a great lead (and will be the leaders),
but if you divert to the right or left, then you will go far astray."
