Imam Ahmad recorded that Zuhrah bin Ma`bad said that his grandfather said, “We were with the Messenger of Allah , while he was holding the hand of `Umar bin Al-Khattab. `Umar said, `By Allah! You, O Messenger of Allah, are dearer to me than everything, except for myself.’ The Messenger of Allah said,

«لَا يُؤْمِنُ أَحَدُكُمْ حَتَّى أَكُونَ أَحَبَّ إِلَيْهِ مِنْ نَفْسِه»

(None among you will attain faith until I become dearer to him than even himself.) `Umar said, `Verily, now, you are dearer to me than myself, by Allah!’ The Messenger of Allah said,

«الْآنَ يَا عُمَر»

(Now, O `Umar!)”

Al-Bukhari also collected this Hadith
