Testimony of Paul Siniraj Muhammad
"Ih'dina Sirathwal musthakim" is the fifth verse of the first Surah of the Glorious Koran and it means "Show us the straight path". There is a tradition saying that 'sirathwal musthakim' is a narrow bridge over hell to the heaven which made out of seven torn pieces of a hair. The righteous can pass over the bridge without any trials; but the wicked will go to hell.
The straight path is the path that leads towards God, the path which God has given to us to follow.
A worldly man cannot pass over the narrow bridge. Jesus says in the Book of Injil (Gospel) that "Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it" (Mt 7:13-14). In the Koran also Allah gives warning to the mankind "Lo! they who deny our revelations and scorn them, for them the gates of Heaven will not be opened nor will they enter the garden until the camel goeth through the needle's eye" (Koran 7:40).
As in the Koran there is a Right Narrow Path to get into the Heaven.
The path to heaven is not narrow, it is your understanding that is narrow. The gates of heaven will not be opened and their chances of getting in are as much as a camel entering the needle’s eye. What’s so hard to understand in this? The gates of heaven are wide.
The Koran says: "Allah created Adam out of mud, fashioned him and told the angels to fall and prostrate before the man. Iblis (Lucifer) did not obey. God degraded him.
What do you mean? God asked him the reason and told him to leave. What kind of degradation are you talking about?
Maybe your mind really is narrow as your path to heaven.
Still he asked God to reprieve till the day
when the human beings are raised from the dead. It was granted. Then Iblis said to God that he will lurk in ambush of man on
God's Right Path. Again he said that he will go upon them from before them and
from behind them and from their right hands and from their left hands for God
would not find most of them beholden" (Koran 7:10-17).
Mankind does not see the Right Narrow Path, because it is hidden by Iblis. Also he tries to lead them into wrong, broad and worldly ways. But the children of Abraham and Ishmael knows the broad path is not the right one to Heaven. So we pray to God to show us the Right Path.
You have a very narrow mind. The straight path is the path of God and for the believers it is very wide.
Jesus said: "Strive to enter by the narrow door; for many, I tell you, will seek to enter and will not be able" (Lk 13:24). In the Scripture of Holy Bible, same Jesus declared : "I am the Way, the Truth and the Life; no one comes to the Father, but by me" (Jn 14:6).
The Koran says in 19:21 about Jesus as a revelation for mankind and a mercy from Allah, and it is a thing ordained.
Jesus destroyed the head of Iblis, and opened the narrow door of Heaven. He says: "In the world you have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world" (Jn 16:33). Also He has given grace for those who is born of God can overcome the world. Yes! It is the victory that overcomes the world, our faith. (1Jn 5:4). But still it is very sad to say that Gospel is veiled to those who are perishing. In their case god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelievers, to keep them from seeing the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the likeness of God (2Cor 4:3-4).
The Bible says in 1Tim 2:5 that there is one God, and there is one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus. The Koran also says very clearly that Jesus, son of Mary, illustrious in the world and the Hereafter, and one of those brought near unto Allah (Koran 3:45). So we may keep our duty to Allah and obey Jesus (Koran 3:50; 43:61).
May Allah bless all of us to enter into the
