لِكُل عالِم هفوة و لِكُل جواد كبوة و لِكُل صارِم نبوة
“For every intellectual a lapse, for every horse a stumble, and for every sword [bearer] a disaster.”
Note: And similarly pertaining to worldly affairs; nothing goes up except it has to come down.
It was narrated that Anas bin Malik said:
“The Messenger of Allah raced with a Bedouin and (the latter) won. It was as if the Companions of the Messenger of Allah were upset by this, so he said: ‘It is a right upon Allah that there is nothing that raises itself in this world except that He lowers it.'”
Reported by al-Bukhaari.
