لَّيْسَ بِأَمَـٰنِيِّكُمْ وَلاۤ أَمَانِيِّ أَهْلِ ٱلْكِتَابِ مَن يَعْمَلْ سُوۤءًا يُجْزَ بِهِ وَلاَ يَجِدْ لَهُ مِن دُونِ ٱللَّهِ وَلِيّاً وَلاَ نَصِيراً
-An-Nisâ’ ( النساء )

Tafsir al-Jalalayn

When the Muslims and the People of the Scripture began to pride themselves [upon God’s promise] the following was revealed: It, this matter, is not, dependent upon, your desires nor the desires of the People of the Scripture, but upon righteous deeds. Whoever does evil shall be requited for it, either in the Hereafter or in this life through trials and tribulations, as is stated in hadīth; and he will not find besides God, that is, other than Him, any friend, to protect him, or helper, to defend him against Him.
