Sayyiduna Abu Hurayra (radi Allahu anhu) reported: A man said to the Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam), “Advise me!” The Holy Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) said, “Do not become angry and furious.” The man asked the same again and again, and the Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) said in each case, “Do not become angry and furious.” (Bukhari)

Allah’s Apostle (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) said: The strong person is not the one who overcomes the people by his strength, but the strong person is the one who controls while in anger. (Bukhari)

The Holy Quraan says: The good deed and the evil deed are not alike. Repel the evil deed with one, which is better, then lo! He, between whom and you there was enmity (will become) as though he was a bosom friend. (41: 34) Commenting on the verse, Sayyiduna Abdullah bin Abbas (radi Allahu anhuma) says: The man who keeps patience at the time of anger and forgives his enemy of his evil doings, Allah  will keep him safe and his enemy will bow down to him as if he is the nearest and dearest friend. (Bukhari)

The Holy Quraan says: Those who avoid the greater sins and illegal sexual intercourse, and forgive when they are angry.(42:37)

And also the Statement of Almighty Allah: Those who spend (both) in prosperity and in adversity, who repress anger (3:134)

Sayyiduna Musa (alaihis salaam) said: O Allah! Who amongst Thy creatures enjoys a respectful status in Thy Court? Almighty Allah said: “He who forgives his enemy despite having the strength of taking his revenge.” (Bay’haqi)

The Glorious Prophet of Islam (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) said: “On the Day of Judgment, Allah shall protect him who controls his tongue, and shall withdraw punishment from him who controls his anger”. (Bay’haqi)

The Holy Prophet Muhammad (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) said: The anger is of the Shaytaan and the Shaytaan is made of fire and the fire is extinguished by water. Therefore, whoso is in a state of anger should make ablution. (Abu Da’ood)

Sayyiduna Rasoolullah (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) said: Better are those amongst you who get angry late and come to normal soon and worse are those amongst you who get angry soon and come to normal late. Keep away from anger, as it is a live fire in the heart of a man. Don’t you see that the veins in the neck get swollen and eyes become red in the state of anger? He, who feels angry, should lie down and stick to the ground.
