Riyad as-Saliheen 163

Jabir (May Allah be pleased with him) reported:
Messenger of Allah ﷺ 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".


الثامن: عن جابر رضي الله عنه قال: قال رسول الله ﷺ "مثلي ومثلكم كمثل رجل أوقد ناراً فجعل الجنادب والفراش يقعن فيها وهو يذبهن عنها وأنا آخذ بحجزكم عن النار، وأنتم تفلتون من يدي" ((رواه مسلم)).
