I am trying to find on google and specially on sunnah.com Is there any hadith whose approximate meaning is as follow:

"O ye pepple who have professed Islam as mere exercise of the tongue and belief has not gone to your hearts {not become a strong conviction), do not cause distress to Muslims (injuring their feelings), nor put them to shame, nor be after fault-finding with them. Those who pursue others doggedly seeking their faults Allah shall pursue their faults. And whom Allah pursues for their faults, He will bring them to ignominy, even if they remain hidden in their houses"

This has been recorded by Tirmidhi (2032 ) and Abu Dawud (4880) among the six books, and also by several others.
