Translation

Ibn Mas’ud (radiyallahu’anhu) reported:

Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam), drew a line with his hand and he said,

“This is the straight path of Allah.”

“These are other paths, and there is no path among them but that a devil is upon it calling to its way.” Then Rasulullah (sallallahu’alayhi wasallam) recited the verse, “Verily, this is the straight path, so follow it and do not follow other paths.”
