And make not Allah’s (name) an excuse in your oaths against doing good, or acting rightly, or making peace between persons; for Allah is One Who heareth and knoweth all things.

According to Tafsir As Saranbi,

In this ayah Allah (swt) continues to mould the first Muslim community that will be
responsible for carrying His (swt)’s Message to mankind. Here Allah (swt) reminds the Muslims
what they were created for. They were created to worship and serve Allah (swt). They were
created to be a source of good in this world. This is the purpose of their existence. In this ayah
Allah (swt) reminds them that there is nothing that should stand in the way of them fulfilling this
purpose for which they were created. Not even their own oaths and promises. Not even the oaths
and promises that they made in the Name of Allah (swt).
