Tafsir jalalayn

Say, to them; `Obey God, and the Messenger', as regards the [belief in the] Oneness of God which he enjoins upon you. But if they turn their backs, [if they] object to obedience, God loves not the disbelievers, meaning that He will chastise them (the [third person] pronominalisation [`they'] is replaced by the overt noun [`the disbelievers']).

Tafseer Ibn Kathir

قُلْ أَطِيعُواْ اللّهَ وَالرَّسُولَ فإِن تَوَلَّوْاْ

Say;"Obey Allah and the Messenger." But if they turn away,

by defying the Prophet,

فَإِنَّ اللّهَ لَا يُحِبُّ الْكَافِرِينَ

then Allah does not like the disbelievers.

thus, testifying that defiance of the Messenger's way constitutes Kufr.

Indeed, Allah does not like whoever does this, even if he claims that he loves Allah and seeks a means of approach to Him, unless, and until, he follows the unlettered Prophet, the Final Messenger from Allah to the two creations;mankind and the Jinn.

This is the Prophet who, if the previous Prophets and mighty Messengers were to have been alive during his time, they would have no choice but to follow, obey him, and to abide by his Law. Allah willing, we will mention this fact when we explain the Ayah,
وَإِذْ أَخَذَ اللّهُ مِيثَاقَ النَّبِيِّيْنَ
(And (remember) when Allah took the Covenant of the Prophets). (3;81
