{11:88} He said, "O my people, have you considered: if I am upon clear evidence from my Lord and He has provided me with a good provision from Him...? And I do not intend to differ from you in that which I have forbidden you; I only intend reform as much as I am able. And my success is not but through God. Upon him I have relied, and to Him I return.

I think that Pickthall got وماأريد أن أخالفكم right. I'll use his suggestion and suggest,

{11:88} He said, "O my people, have you considered: if I am upon clear evidence from my Lord and He has provided me with a good provision from Him? And I do not intend to do behind your backs what I have forbidden you; I only intend reform as much as I can. And my success is not but through God. Upon him I have relied, and to Him I turn.
