And this, [path] that you follow, O Muhammad (s), is the path of your Lord, a straight one, with no crookedness therein (mustaqman, `straight', is in the accusative because it is a circumstantial qualifier emphasising the [previous] statement, and it is operated by the import of the demonstrative noun [hdh, `this']). We have detailed, We have elucidated, the signs for a people who remember (yadhdhakkarn; the original t' has been assimilated with the dhl), that is to say, [a people] who heed admonition -- such [people] are singled out for mention because they are the ones to profit [from the signs].

24 Tafseer Ibn Kathir

After Allah mentioned the way of those who were themselves led to stray from His path and who hindered others from it, He emphasized the honor of the guidance and religion of truth that He sent His Messenger with.

Allah said next,

وَهَـذَا صِرَاطُ رَبِّكَ مُسْتَقِيمًا

And this is the path of your Lord leading straight.

that is, Islam, that We have legislated for you, O Muhammad, by revealing this Qur'an to you, is Allah's straight path.

قَدْ فَصَّلْنَا الايَاتِ
