    Jazak-Allah but is this even a narration. If so then what book? @abu Hasan

    A very learned brother once told me he doesn't even like to repeat this narration out of adab for RasulAllah ﷺ.

    One day Abu Jahl came to the prophet [​IMG] and said, "You have the most ugly face in Bani Hashim." Abu Jahl as we all know was a chief from the Quraysh tribe who showed the most hatred towards Islam.
    The Prophet [​IMG] said, "You speak the truth."
    Soon afterwards, Sayyiduna 'Umar (RA) came in and remarked, "O Prophet of Allah, your face shines like the brilliant sun." The Prophet [​IMG] replied, "You speak the truth."

    A companion of the Prophet [​IMG] who was sitting nearby asked, "How can it be possible that both the opposite remarks are true?"
    The Prophet [​IMG] replied, "I am like a clean shining mirror. Everyone sees his own face in me"
