We are mirrors to one another. When I look at you, I see me. When you look at me, you see yourself in terms of character, values, and virtues. We observe each other to be reminded of what we must be, and what we must not be. When I see good things in you, it reminds me of what I must do. When you see bad things in me, it reminds you of what you should not do.
When we see our reflections in each other, we learn about ourselves. When we are with good company, our reflections remind us and we support one another. But when we are away from each other, we don’t have a mirror to look at. When we are not with the right company, we have broken mirrors that do not help us see clearly. We can’t see each other well in order to improve ourselves.
May Allah ﷻ keep us in good company and allow us to be polished mirrors to one another.
