The reason for descending the verse

The Mother,‘A’isha, narrated, “No one had a better character than the Messenger of Allah (s.a.w). Never did anyone among his Companions, or household, call him except that he said, ‘I am at your service!’ this is why Allah, revealed this verse.”(Al-Wahidi,Reasons of Revelation and As-Suyuti in Lubab)
