The noble Quran says:(5:77) Say: 'People of the Book! Do not go beyond bounds in your religion at the cost of truth, and do not follow the caprices of the people who fell into error before, and caused others to go astray, and strayed far away from the right path.101

Sirat al-Mustaqim is the Arabic term for the straight path. In an Islamic context, it has been interpreted as the right path, Islamic faith or that which pleases God. It can also refer to the Sirat al-Jahim, the bridge of hell.

There are five obligatory daily prayers in Islam. During the two first cycles of each prayer the following phrase is included:

Ihdina s-sirata l-mustaqim, Sirata l-ladheena an'amta alayhim ghair al-maghdhoobi alayhim wa la dhaaleen

Show us the straight path, The path of those You bestowed favor upon, not anger upon, and not of those who go astray.
