Don’t get angry!

A person requested the Holy Prophet صَلَّى اللّٰهُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم: ‘Advise me ‘. The Holy Prophet صَلَّى اللّٰهُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم said: ‘لاتَغْضَبْ’ ‘Do not get angry‘. That person humbly asked the same thing repeatedly; the Holy Prophet صَلَّى اللّٰهُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم answered (each time the same), do not get angry. (Bukhari, vol. 4, pp. 131, Hadees 6116)

Dear children! Nowadays, most of the quarrels break out at houses, in schools and markets due to anger. Acting upon the above-mentioned blessed Hadees, if we do not get angry for the sake of our own self, we will have peace and tranquillity everywhere.

Some children tend to get angry almost on everything, for example, if they are woken up early in the morning, if desirable food item is not available for them in the breakfast, if a window seat is not available for them in the school van, if they get a scolding in the class room, if they are asked to change the school uniform, if they are forbidden to play with bad boys, if they are asked to complete school homework and even if they are asked to go to bed early. In short, it is as if the angry feelings are the part and parcel of their normal routine life.

On the other hand, our beloved Holy Prophet صَلَّى اللّٰهُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم has said ‘لاتَغْضَبْ’ ‘Do not get angry’.

 So, good children do not get angry for the sake of their Nafs. If you also want to be a good child then control your anger and earn great reward by acting upon the mentioned blessed Hadees.

Footnote: Dear children!  About the virtues and parables associated with refraining from showing anger and forgiving others, read the booklet ‘Ghussay ka ‘Ilaaj [Cure for anger]’ authored by Ameer-e-Ahl-e-Sunnat Maulana Muhammad Ilyas Qaadiri دَامَـتْ بَـرَكَـاتُـهُـمُ الْـعَـالِـيَـهْ’.
