The true role model according to the holy Quran

SHAFAQNA – In Surah Al-Fatiha we recite that straight path is the path of those who God has blessed, those who incur no anger and who have not gone astray; and those blessed ones are the prophets, devoted ones, martyrs, and the righteous ones as mentioned in Ayah 69 of Surah An-Nesa; the genuine role model is the straight path of the Prophet (PBUH) as mentioned in Ayah 252 of Surah Al-Baqarah. Beside description of the positive role models, the Quran has warned that we must not go after other models as they are either deviated (from the straight path) or are incurred with Divine Wrath. The Quran has described those who are inflicted with Divine Wrath as pharos, hypocrites, tyrants, transgressors, and oppressors; deviated models have been described as those who have gone astray, polytheists, pleasure seekers, and those who accept the rule of unworthy ones, and seek ungodly ones, and disobey God [1].
