Translation

Verily, this is My way, leading straight: follow it: follow not (other) paths: they will scatter you about from His (great) path: thus doth He command you. that ye may be righteous.

Tafsir

And that (read anna, with laam [of li-anna, 'because'] being implied, or inna, as beginning a new sentence) this, that I have charged you with, is My straight path (mustaqeeman, 'straight', is a circumstantial qualifier), so follow it; and do not follow other ways, paths opposed to it, lest it separate you (tafarraqa: one of the two letters taa' [of the original tatafarraqa] has been omitted) make you incline, away from His way, His religion. This is what He has ordained for you, that perhaps you will be God-fearing'.
