Since in narrative interpretations, true meaning of "Straight Path" is a reliable narrative, which indicates that the essence of Imam Ali (as) is a perfect example of a "Straight Path", and also in many authentic narratives explicitly under the verse 82 of Naml, it is pointed out that the purpose of "Dābbat al-Arḍ " is the being of Amir al-Mu'minin (as), so the author in the present article, has given a detailed description of their meanings, referring to the verses containing these two words, centered on the verse 56 of Hud, which expresses the mercy of Allah, the supreme and perfect human being in the context of the truth of the Straight Path in the whole being; and the writer has also tried, in accordance with the words of his companion in the verses, to reveal the same truth in these two terms. In this regard, the use of authentic narratives has led to the introduction of these concepts by expressing the interpretation of these verses from the words of infallible Imam. Result of this research is that, firstly, the audience of the Qur'an considers the contents of all Quranic words related to the truth of the Wilayat, although there is no meaning in the apparent meaning of the words and phrases in this regard. Secondly, those who are in the true path of "Straight Path" will be placed in the Wilayate of the direct examples of the Prophet's path in all aspects of their life.
