How to Control Anger?

Seeking refuge with Allah from the accursed Shaytaan when feeling angry. Al-Bukhaari (3282) and Muslim (2610) narrated that Sulaymaan ibn Surad said: I was sitting with the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) and two men were trading insults, One of them was red in the face and his veins were standing out. The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: "I know a word which, if he said it, what he is feeling would go away. If he said, 'I seek refuge with Allaah from the Shaytaan,' what he is feeling would go away."
2 – Changing one's posture when feeling angry. Abu Dawood (4782) narrated that Abu Dharr (may Allaah be pleased with him) said: The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said to us: "If one of you gets angry when he is standing, let him sit down; if his anger disappears, all well and good, otherwise let him lie down." Classed as saheeh by al-Albaani in Saheeh Abi Dawood.

3 – Bring to mind the reward for patience, forbearance and restraining your anger, for that is the characteristic of the pious who are promised Paradise, as Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):

"And march forth in the way (which leads to) forgiveness from your Lord, and for Paradise as wide as the heavens and the earth, prepared for Al-Muttaqoon (the pious).

134. Those who spend (in Allaah's Cause) in prosperity and in adversity, who repress anger, and who pardon men; verily, Allaah loves Al-Muhsinoon (the good‑doers)"

[Aal 'Imraan 3:133-134]

The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: "Whoever restrains his anger when he is able to act upon it, Allaah will fill his heart with pleasure on the Day of Resurrection." Narrated by Ibn Abi'l-Dunya; classed as hasan by al-Albaani in Saheeh al-Targheeb, 2623.

Mashallah! Beautiful!

May Allah Almighty pour his endless and continuous blessings upon Sheikh Nazim Al-Haqqani and give them more.

May He also lighten Sheikh Nazim's burden's to degrees lighter than the weight of the lightest feather resting on the majestic pillow of the Divine Throne.

May He always make ot easy for us to be from his sincere murids in support of His Divine Kingdom.
