Translation

Wert thou to follow the common run of those on earth, they will lead thee away from the way of Allah. They follow nothing but conjecture: they do nothing but lie.

Tafsir

If you obey most of those on earth, that is, the disbelievers, they will lead you astray from the way of God, [from] His religion; they follow only supposition, when they dispute with you concerning [the status of] carrion, saying: 'What God has killed is more worthy of your consumption than what you kill yourselves!'; they are merely guessing, speaking falsehood in this [matter].
