ANAS SAID:

THE SHE-CAMEL OF THE APOSTLE OF ALLAH ﷺ CALLED AL-ADBA HAD NOT BEEN OUTSTRIPPED BY ANOTHER, BUT AN A’RABI (A NOMADIC ARAB) CAME ON A YOUNG RIDING CAMEL OF HIS AND IT OUTSTRIPPED IT. THAT DISTRESSED THE COMPANIONS OF THE APOSTLE OF ALLAH ﷺ, BUT HE SAID: IT IS ALLAH’S RIGHT THAT NOTHING SHOULD BECOME EXALTED IN THE WORLD BUT HE LOWERS IT.
حَدَّثَنَا مُوسَى بْنُ إِسْمَاعِيلَ، حَدَّثَنَا حَمَّادٌ، عَنْ ثَابِتٍ، عَنْ أَنَسٍ، قَالَ كَانَتِ الْعَضْبَاءُ لاَ تُسْبَقُ فَجَاءَ أَعْرَابِيٌّ عَلَى قَعُودٍ لَهُ فَسَابَقَهَا فَسَبَقَهَا الأَعْرَابِيُّ فَكَأَنَّ ذَلِكَ شَقَّ عَلَى أَصْحَابِ رَسُولِ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم فَقَالَ ‏
"‏ حَقٌّ عَلَى اللَّهِ عَزَّ وَجَلَّ أَنْ لاَ يَرْفَعَ شَيْئًا مِنَ الدُّنْيَا إِلاَّ وَضَعَهُ ‏"‏ ‏.‏
