[16].Surah An-Nahl [The Bees]: Ayat 125

Ayat 125. Invite (mankind, O Muhammad  [SAWW](PBUH) to the Way of your Lord (i.e. Islam) with wisdom (i.e. with the Divine Inspiration and the Qur'an) and fair preaching, and argue with them in a way that is better. Truly, your Lord knows best who has gone astray from His Path, and He is the Best Aware of those who are guided.
Hazrat Jabir (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: Messenger of Allah [SAWW](PBUH) 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 Book 30, Chapter 06, Hadith # 5672]. 
Lesson : as mentioned above in Surah An-Nahl Ayat 125. Invite (mankind, O Muhammad [SAWW](PBUH) to the Way of your Lord (i.e. Islam) with wisdom" This Hadith mentions the extreme kindness which the Prophet [SAWW](PBUH) had for the welfare of his followers. It also mentions the misfortune of those who would become the fuel of Hell for not accepting Islam in spite of the utmost affection and ardour of the Prophet [SAWW](PBUH) to bring them in the fold of Islam. People who fail to accept Islam would fall in the Hell-fire in the same way moths fall in the fire.
