As you can see in the below result it is not fine.

I already tried tools like Majority Filter, Focal but didn't work for me.

All I want is to smooth a raster file and not having the squares too much defined.

You need to uses Low Pass Filter:

A low pass filter smooths the data by reducing local variation and removing noise. It calculates the average (mean) value for each 3 x 3 neighborhood. It is essentially equivalent to the Focal Statistics tool with the Mean statistic option. The effect is that the high and low values within each neighborhood will be averaged out, reducing the extreme values in the data.

It can be accessed from ArcToolbox -> Spatial Analyst Tools -> Neighborhood -> Filter . Low Pass filter is the default filter type.

    What do you mean nothing changed. I used low pass filter many times and I always received good results. Sometimes you need to apply more than once to get good results. – ahmadhanb Oct 20 '17 at 8:39
  • There is only change in color Ramp i.e Black & White. Tried 5 times. – Nasir Oct 23 '17 at 4:20

    What raster format are you using? Is it ESRI GRID, Geotiff, or something else? – ahmadhanb Oct 23 '17 at 4:21
  • I am using ESRI GRID – Nasir Oct 23 '17 at 4:28
