Anas bin Malik (May Allah be pleased with him) reported:

Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) had a she-camel called Al-'Adba' which would not allow any other camel to surpass her. A bedouin came riding his camel which outstripped it. The Muslims were much grieved at this. Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) perceived it and said, "It is Allah's Way that he lowers whatever raises itself in the world."[Al- Bukhari].

وعن أنس رضي الله عنه قال‏:‏ كانت ناقة رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم‏:‏ العضباء لا تسبق، أو لا تكاد تسبق فجاء أعرابي على قعود له، فسبقها، فشق ذلك على المسلمين حتى عرفه، النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم فقال‏:‏ “حق على الله أن لا يرتفع شئ من الدنيا إلا وضعه” ‏(‏‏(‏رواه البخاري‏)‏‏)‏‏.‏
