Sahih Muslim Book 030, Hadith Number 5672.

Chapter : The extreme love of Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) for his Umma, and his extreme anxiety to warn them against that which is a source of trouble to them.

Jabir b. Abdullah reported Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying. My example and your example is that of a person who lit the fire and insects and moths began to fall in it and he would be making efforts to take them out, and I am going to hold you back from fire, but you are slipping from my hand.
