54. Food for the Soul - Anger


Recommended Posts

Pearls of Wisdom: No.54

“Food for the Soul”




Allah, The Most Exalted, says:

“Those who spend (in Allâh's Cause - deeds of charity, alms, etc.) in prosperity and in adversity, who repress anger, and who pardon men; verily, Allâh loves Al-Muhsinoon (the good­ doers).”  (Qur’an 3:134)


The Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) is reported to have said; 

"The strong is not the one who overcomes the people by his strength, but the strong is the one who controls himself while in anger." (Hadith-Sahih Al-Bukhari)


Note:  Anger is a word, one letter short of Danger! It usually begins with madness and often results in regret. It is an emotion which if controlled, then the results will be positive. On the other hand if uncontrolled, then the outcome would be negative or detrimental.


Many things cause one to become angry and it is very easy for us to let go of our tempers and blow into a rage. However we should try to remain as calm as possible and exercise restraint. The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) advises us: “When one of you is angry while standing, let him sit down and if his anger goes away that is good; otherwise let him lie down.” (Hadith Abu Dawud)


“A moment of patience, in a moment of anger, saves a thousand moments of regret!”
