وَلاَ تُصَعِّرْ خَدَّكَ لِلنَّاسِ وَلاَ تَمْشِ فِي ٱلأَرْضِ مَرَحاً إِنَّ ٱللَّهَ لاَ يُحِبُّ كُلَّ مُخْتَالٍ فَخُورٍ
-Luqmân ( لقمان )

Tafsir al-Jalalayn

And do not turn your cheek disdainfully from people (tusa‘‘ir: a variant reading has tusā‘ir) do not turn your face away in disdain, and do not walk upon the earth exultantly, in other words, with haughtiness. Truly God does not like any swaggering braggart, strutting in his step, [boasting] in front of people.
