    I saw this expression on facebook. I don't have much more context, but still don't have a gist of what is meant?

    Arabic
    دوام = persistence, permanence
    الحال = the situation
    من المحال = impossible

    So it says that it's impossible for any situation to be permanent.

    Arabic
    not exactly the literal translation but it means nothing stands still/stay the same
