Straight Path leads to Paradise

Surah YUUNUS – 10 (JONAH)


In the name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful




After meditating in the previous two verses, the relationship of the human being with the world can be understood clearly. Mankind is a created, actual connection of which is with the heaven, and after creating, he was kept at first there. Because Satan did not bow before the Man (Adam – peace be upon Him), therefore, he tried and got Him flown from the Paradise.


It was commanded that the mankind should be sent out of the Paradise and kept at such place, where he should meet the Devil (Satan) face to face, and whenever he will overcome against Satan, then he should be provided dwelling place in the Paradise. For this purpose He was sent down on the earth (in this world).


The world should be considered as a very vast place of labyrinth, as in the old buildings of mausoleums, some grandee people have constructed places full of wingdings. For entrance into them, there are innumerable doors. But as soon as one enters, there are countless complicated paths, out of which, going forth from one path to another doesn’t matter.


These all paths finish at the second end of the world; and the human being, at last, arrives at any door for going out; after wandering hither and thither, and consequently goes out of such labyrinth. It is impossible to come back unto entrance door from those paths, however, every path leads to go out after numberless turns, and as soon as the human being comes out from any door, enters into the Fire.


There is only one such Path which ends at the Paradise, and which; Allah Almighty has manifested by means of His Last Messenger (grace, blessings and peace of Allah be on Him), and its Signs have been described very clearly. Whosoever chose that Path and moved on it, at last he will reach the Paradise certainly.


But other all paths end at the Hell and Satan misleads the human being and puts him unto any path from those. Allah Almighty commanded in the previous last verse: Those people whose hearts have Belief, that is to say; those who are ready wholeheartedly for obeying the commandments of Allah Almighty after knowing Him, He guides them unto that (Straight) Path. Eventually, the Disbelievers, who go astray on other paths, are thrown in the Fire of the Hell.
