Anger Management

Anger is one of the worst causes of life problems, financial and family break-ups. When the Prophet (peace be upon him) was asked for advice by one of his companions, he replied, “Do not be angry.” He repeated this three times. This shows us how critical it is for a human being to learn how to control their anger.

Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported:

Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said, “The strong man is not one who is good at wrestling, but the strong man is one who controls himself in a fit of rage.”

[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].

وعن أبي هريرة رضي الله عنه أن رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم قال‏:‏

‏ليس الشديد بالصرعة، إنما الشديد الذى يملك نفسه عند الغضب‏

‏‏(‏متفق عليه‏)‏‏‏

Abu Hurairah (RAA) narrated, ‘A man said, “O Messenger of Allah, advise me.” The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said:

“Do not get angry.” The man repeated that several times and he replied, “Do not get angry.” Related by Al-Bukhari.

وَعَنْهُ أَنَّ رَجُلاً قَالَ: { يَا رَسُولَ اَللَّهِ! أَوْصِنِي.‏ فَقَالَ: لَا تَغْضَبْ, فَرَدَّدَ مِرَارًا.‏ قَالَ: لَا تَغْضَبْ } أَخْرَجَهُ اَلْبُخَارِيُّ.

It was once said to the great scholar, Abdullah ibn Al-Mubaarak (may Allah have mercy on him),

“Gather (summarise) for us beautiful character in one word.”

So he said,

Abandonment of anger.

قيل لعبدالله بن المبارك: اجْمَعْ لنا حسنَ الخلق في كلمة،

قال: تركُ الغضبِ
