Translation

Never will the Jews or the Christians be satisfied with thee unless thou follow their form of religion. Say: "The Guidance of Allah,-that is the (only) Guidance." Wert thou to follow their desires after the knowledge which hath reached thee, then wouldst thou find neither Protector nor helper against Allah.

Tafsir

Never will the Jews be pleased with you, neither the Christians, not until you follow their creed, their religion, Say: 'God's guidance, that is, Islam, is the true guidance', besides which there is only error. And if you were (wa-la-in: the laam is for oaths) to follow their whims, hypothetically speaking, [whims] to which they are calling you, after the knowledge, the Divine revelation, that has come to you, you shall have against God neither friend, to protect you, nor helper, to defend you against Him.
