Imaam Al-Allaamah Muhammad Ibn Saalih Al-Uthaymeen (may Allaah have mercy upon him) stated:
"Allaah has connected the straight path to himself and he connected it to his creation. Allaah stated in Soorah Al-Faatihah:
"Guide us to the straight path. The path of those whom your favor is upon and not the path of those whom your anger is upon nor those who are astray."
Here Allaah has connected the straight path to those whom He has bestowed His favor upon. Allaah has also stated:
"And indeed you guide to a straight path. The path of Allaah, The One for whom is that which is in the heavens and the earth."
How do we combine between these two types of connections? We say that Allaah connected the straight path to those whom His favor is upon because they are the ones who traverse upon it. He connected it to himself because He is the one who placed it for His servants and it is that which leads them to Him."
