* تفسير Kashani Tafsir

{ وَإِن تُطِعْ أَكْثَرَ مَن فِي ٱلأَرْضِ يُضِلُّوكَ عَن سَبِيلِ ٱللَّهِ إِن يَتَّبِعُونَ إِلاَّ ٱلظَّنَّ وَإِنْ هُمْ إِلاَّ يَخْرُصُونَ }

[If you obey] most of those on earth, those who are in the lower aspect, by leaning towards this world and the world of the soul and nature, they will lead you astray from the way of God, by their adorning of their refined speech for you and their calling of you to [indulge in] what they are involved in; they follow only supposition, since they are veiled from certainty by illusions and imaginations at the station of the soul; they are merely, conjecturing [by replacing] forms with meanings, the Hereafter with this world and estimating [what] the states [will be] at the final return, as well as the essence of the Truth and His attributes, such as the states of the means of livelihood, in addition to their essences and their attributes, falling thereby into idolatrous association and permitting certain things that are forbidden.
