Dua for looking in the mirror, Explanation
The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) was superior to everyone in the universe in terms of creation and morals. This prayer of The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) was for continuing this blessing and educating the Ummah.
The dua is that the prophet s.a.w whenever He looked into the mirror, used to say “Allahumma anta Hassanta Khalqee Fa Hassin Khuluqee.” O Allah, as you have perfected my creation, that is the physical appearance, also perfect my moral conduct and character because what you have in terms of physical appearance is nothing compared to your character and your moral conduct.
How many handsome men and gorgeous beautiful women are there today? Millions, but who among them is beautiful in character; kind, honest, generous, brave does not cheat not lie. A few, so this dua is a request, and you are urging Allah to perfect you inside out. So whenever you say Allahumma anta Hassanta Khalqee FaHassin Khuluqee —- “O Allah, You have beautified my features, so beautify my character as well.”
Is this dua special and limited only to look at the mirror? Can we read it not while looking into the mirror but at other times?
This dua has a beautiful meaning. You can say this whenever you want. Not only to limit it when you look in the mirror. You can say it because it’s a dua.
One of the unique things about this Dua is that the person gets attention and concern towards his inner actions and morals. The servant thanks Allah for how much mercy Allah has bestowed on me. Made all my organs healthy and functional.
Allah Made my two hands equal. He did not make one small and one big. Make both tangs equal, one small and one big. Make both ears equal. He did not make one ear small and one ear big. My nose, ears, eyes, everything was made with great beauty. But if there is a deficiency in my actions, O Allah! Make my actions good too. Make me your submissive.
عَنْ أَبِي هُرَيْرَةَ قَالَ: الْمُؤْمِنُ مَرْآةُ أَخِيهِ، إِذَا رَأَى فِيهَا عَيْبًا أَصْلَحَهُ.
Abu Hurayra said, "A believer is the mirror of his brother. When he sees a fault in it, he should correct it."
How can a muslim brother be a mirror of his Muslim brother?
- When a person stands in front of the mirror and sees any flaws and dirt on his face, he does not like to keep the flaws and dirt on his face, but he immediately removes them. The same thing should happen. When a Muslim sees any deficiency in another Muslim/believer, a believer should also consider him as his mirror, consider his deficiency as his own, and immediately try to remove it.
- A mirror tells your fault only to yourself and not to anyone else. A believer should also present his brother’s fault, not tell people about it.
- A mirror never lies; a believer should always speak the truth about a believer’s matters.
Unfortunatly, today we are mirrors that hide our thousands of blemishes and show the minor scars of others. If we pay attention to ourselves and look at our faults, we try to improve ourselves.
