Question:

How shall we follow the path of the righteous while there are great temptations surrounding the Islamic nation from all sides? 

Answer:

The path of the righteous is the straight path, the adherence to the Book (the Qur'an) and the Sunnah, and the rally around the scholars and the righteous people. Along with that, the Muslim should perform more acts of  worship, because worshipping Allah at the time of Harj, which means much bloodshed and trials, is equal - in reward- to the emigration to the Prophet (peace be upon him) as narrated in the Sahih (authentic) Hadith that he said:

[العبادة في الهرج كهجرة إليّ]

[The reward of worship performed at the time of trials is equal in reward to the emigration to me] (Sahih Muslim, 2948).

Also, it's stated that the one who adheres to the Sunnah during days of trials has the reward of fifty men. The Companions replied: 'O Messenger of Allah! The reward of fifty men among us, or them?' He, peace be upon him, said:

[منكم]

[No! Rather (the reward of fifty men) among you] (Abu Dawood: 4341).

This is a great reward. Therefore,  a man must preserve himself and keep his tongue. Then he should turn to worshiping Allah as well as adhering to what we have mentioned of the Qur'an and the Sunnah, and rally around the scholars and the religious people.
