وَأَقْسَمُواْ بِٱللَّهِ جَهْدَ أَيْمَانِهِمْ لَئِنْ أَمَرْتَهُمْ لَيَخْرُجُنَّ قُل لاَّ تُقْسِمُواْ طَاعَةٌ مَّعْرُوفَةٌ إِنَّ ٱللَّهَ خَبِيرٌ بِمَا تَعْمَلُونَ
٥٣
-An-Nûr ( النور )

Tafsir al-Jalalayn

And they swear by God solemn oaths that if you order them, to [participate in the] struggle, they will surely go forth. Say, to them: ‘Do not swear! Acknowledged obedience, to the Prophet is better than the oaths to which you are not true. Surely God is Aware of what you do’, when you say you will obey but act otherwise.
