Anger is the name of outrageous emotion, it is a concealed weapon that demolishes the noblest of characters, it always comes for a short while but destroys the deep relationship, thick friendship, it spreads the odour of hatred amongst people with whom they sit and spend most of the time, humans are being weighed and judged in the state of anger.
To suppress the anger is as important as to douse the fire, otherwise it will engulf our whole body within a minute, it is said that Out-of-control anger is the result of extreme annoyance, aggression, and displeasure and is a deadly malady.
The Prophet once asked his Companions, “Whom among you do you consider a strong person?” They replied, “The one who can defeat so-and-so in a wrestling contest.” He said, “That is not so; a strong person is the one who can control himsel when he is angry” Let’s crush the plant of anger before it destroys us.
We can control our anger acting upon the below method prescribed by prophet(PBUH) “If one of you becomes angry while standing he should sit down. If the anger leaves him, well and good; otherwise he should lie down”. The Prophet also advised us that performing ablution was an acceptable method of anger management. He said, “Anger comes from Satan, Satan was created from fire, and fire is extinguished only with water; so when any of you is angry, he or she should perform ablution” and most importantly, When we are happy, we should not make promises; and when we are angry, we should not take decisions in order to avoid tragedies which will visit upon us later
