“People are like mines….”

Sahih Bukhari, “Book of Virtues” Chapter 65.3304. It is related from Abu Hurayra that the Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, said, “You will find people to be like mines. The best of them in the Jahiliyya are the best of them in Islam when they have understanding. You will find the best of people in this business (of command) to be those who dislike it the most, and you will find the worst of people are the two-faced who come to these people with one face and those people with another face.”

[Mines contain different minerals, some precious and some base.]
