Riyad us Saliheen (The Book of Miscellany – 163)


Jabir (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: Messenger of Allah (Sallallahu ‘alaihi wa sallam) said, “My parable and that of yours is like a man who kindled a fire. When it has illuminated all around him, the moths and grasshoppers began to fall therein. He tried to push them away, but they overcame him and jumped into it. I am catching hold of your waists ties (to save you) from fire, but you slip away from my hands”.[Muslim].
