Is the following a Hadith or it is simply a saying:

المرء يقيس على نفسه



I have not come across this as a Hadith. This seems to be an Arabic proverb.



A person judges [others] by his own [values and thoughts]. i.e. How one thinks of others is a reflection of his own internal state.


And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
