Translation

And they have been commanded no more than this: To worship Allah, offering Him sincere devotion, being true (in faith); to establish regular prayer; and to practise regular charity; and that is the Religion Right and Straight.

Tafsir

And they were only commanded, in their Scripture, the Torah and the Bible, to worship God (illaa li-ya'budoo means illaa an ya'budoo, an having been omitted and the laam added) devoting religion purely to Him, [free] of any idolatry, as haneefs, upright in [following] the religion of Abraham and the religion of Muhammad may peace and salutation be upon him, when he would come - so how is it that they disbelieved in him?, and to establish prayer and pay the alms. That is the upright religion, the upright creed.
