There are many exit doors on the Siraat e Mustaqeem (The straight path)

Here is the Hadith on it:

At-Tirmidhee reports from Nawaas bin Sam`aan that the Messenger of Allaah (SAW) said,

Allaah has set forth the following as a parable: There is a road that leads straight to the destination. On either side of the road there is a wall in which there are open doors with curtains hanging on them. From the remote end of the road, a voice calls, ‘proceed straight and do not turn aside.’ Whenever someone intends to lift a curtain from the door another voice calls from above, ‘beware! Do not lift the curtain, otherwise you will be lured inside.’

The Prophet (SAW) explained the parable by saying that the straight path is Islaam, the walls are the limits imposed by Allaah, the open doors are the things that he has prohibited, the voice which calls from the end of the road is the Qur`aan and the voice which calls from above is Allaah’s monitor in the heart of every believer. [At-Tirmidhee [Adaab, no. 76], Ahmad [4/182-183]. It was declared saheeh by al-Albaanee in ‘Saheeh al-Jaami`’ [no. 3887]]
