Importance Of Managing Anger In Islam

Managing Anger In Islam

Islam places great focus on human interaction by instructing them to meet other humans with good manners and positive perspective in the everyday routine. The complete life of the Holy Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) also proves that He possessed the extraordinary character and personality that cannot be found in anyone else. He always informed His followers the benefits of Islamic instructions through His own compassionate deeds.

Amongst different types of negative attitudes that are not permitted in religion of Islam, anger is termed as one of the most evil and destructive type of attitudes that should never be possessed by the pious Muslims. One of the companions of Holy Prophet Mohammad (PBUH), Abu Hurrairah (R.A) once told about the story of a person telling the Holy Prophet Mohammad (PBUH): “Counsel me.” The Holy Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) said: “Do not get angry.” The man repeated his request many times, but the Holy Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) kept saying: “Do not get angry.” (Bukhari)

Therefore great importance is given to preventing anger because despite the annoyance of telling the person to avoid anger by telling him the same suggestion number of times Holy Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) didn’t change his instructions. The scientific research effectively proves that the display of anger lead to the feelings of the resentment and negative emotions afterwards that can make the humans non-constructive. It also overpowers the entire mind of the person eventually compelling him to make a non beneficial decision.

Anger is a non useful emotion that should be eliminated from the personality of the Muslims therefore they should make decisions with tolerance and cool thinking instead of becoming overpowered by the negativity of anger. Normally, if the thoughts of irritation are not dealt carefully they can result in giving rise to the collection of negative emotions that can eventually lead to the failure in the person’s life. Therefore, it is suggested that one must stay tolerant and avoid anger by remembering the instructions of Holy Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) all the times.
