وَلاَ تَمْشِ فِي ٱلأَرْضِ مَرَحاً إِنَّكَ لَن تَخْرِقَ ٱلأَرْضَ وَلَن تَبْلُغَ ٱلْجِبَالَ طُولاً
-Al-Isrâ’ ( الإسراء )

Tafsir al-Jalalayn

And do not walk in the earth exultantly, that is, exultant with pride and conceit. Indeed you will not rend the earth, [you will not] pierce it and reach its depths with your pride, nor attain the mountains in height: the meaning is that you shall never attain such ends, so how can you be so arrogant?
