Given that there is only one straight path, Imam Khomeini writes that all the above are instances of one and the same path. The application of the straight path to humanity, its leader the Prophet s and Imams a , the religion, and the bridge on the Hell is compatible with there being only one such path, since they are all paths to the Heaven and to God.
