Surah As-Saff (The Row) 61
This Surah was revealed in Madinah, and it has 14 verses and 2 sections

In the Name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Most Merciful

Allah's purity has been proclaimed by all that is in the heavens and all that is in the earth, and He is the All.Mighty, the All-Wise. [1]

COMMENTARY: Ibn Kathir, with reference to Musnad of Ahmad, reports that some of the Companions gathered and wanted someone to go to Allah's Messenger and ask him about the action that is dearest to Allah, but no one dared to do so. Whilst this discussion was going on, the Noble Messenger (Peace be Upon Him) sent a man to call each one of them by name. When they all arrived, the Noble Messenger (Peace be Upon Him) recited the entire Surah As-Saff which had been revealed just then.

This Surah shows that the 'dearest action' they were looking for was 'Striving in the cause of Allah' and their statement that 'if we come to know about it, we shall dedicate our lives in acting upon it' was a sort of claim of having the ability to do it. At this, they were admonished that it is not proper for any believer to make such a claim, because no one can for sure know whether he will be able to implement his intentions when the time arrives. It is not in his power that all the causes of action are made effective and all impediments are removed. Nor are the abilities and strengths of his hands or arms or limbs or organs altogether in his power. Nor is his determination or intention completely in his control. Therefore, even the Noble Messenger (Peace be Upon Him) was instructed in the Qur'an, thus: "And never say about anything, 'I am going to do this tomorrow, unless (you say :) if Allah wills." [18: 23-24]

Although the intention of the blessed Companions was not to make a boastful claim, it did seem apparently as a claim, which Allah dislikes. If a person makes a commitment to do something in the future, he needs to surrender it to the Divine will and affirm it by saying 'If Allah wills'. The verses were revealed to admonish the believers.
