"I wish I didnít say that" or "I wish I didn't do that" - How many times have we said this after reflecting on what we said or did during a moment of ďangerĒ? We regret and then we have to apologise. How many sins have been committed because of anger.
Our Beloved Nabi Hazrat Salla Allahu 'alayhi wa Sallam knew of the harmful effects that anger can have and so when a man came to him and asked ďO Messenger of Allah, advise me,Ē the Messenger (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said, ďDo not become angry.Ē The man repeated his question several times and the Messenger said, ďDo not become angry.Ē
(Narrated by al-Bukhaari, 6116).
Anger is not a proof of our strength, rather it is a great weakness that we have and our Beloved Nabi Hazrat Salla Allahu 'alayhi wa Sallam also told us "The strong one is not one who can out-wrestle others. Rather, the strong one is one who can restrain themselves when angry."
(Bukhari & Muslim)
