Allah’s Apostle said, “The main source of disbelief is in the east (of the Arabic Peninsula). Pride and arrogance are characteristics of the owners of horses and camels, and those bedouins who are busy with their camels and pay no attention to Religion; while modesty and gentleness are the characteristics of the owners of sheep.” (Al Bukhari)

عن ابي هُرَيْرَةَ ـ رضى الله عنه ـ أَنَّ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم قَالَ ‏ “‏ رَأْسُ الْكُفْرِ نَحْوَ الْمَشْرِقِ، وَالْفَخْرُ  وَالْخُيَلاَءُ فِي أَهْلِ الْخَيْلِ وَالإِبِلِ، وَالْفَدَّادِينَ أَهْلِ الْوَبَرِ، وَالسَّكِينَةُ فِي أَهْلِ الْغَنَمِ ‏” ‏

The Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “While a man was walking in a fine garment with his hair well-combed and he was arrogantly impressed with himself, Allah caused the earth to swallow him. He will continue falling until the Day of Resurrection.”( Bukhari and Muslim)
