Two of the most popular hadith on the control of anger are:
Rasool s.a.w.s said:
“I know a word, the saying of which will cause him to relax, if he does say it. If he says: ‘I seek Refuge with Allah from Satan’ then all his anger will go away.” [Al-Bukhari; Vol. 4, No. 502]
Abu Dharr narrated: The Apostle of Allah, sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam, said to us: “When one of you becomes angry while standing, he should sit down. If the anger leaves him, well and good; otherwise he should lie down.” [Abu Daud; Book 41, No. 4764]
Despite all of the many benefits of fasting in the month of Ramadan, I find myself irascible at times with others.
Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him) reported that the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) said
Fasting is a shield; so when one of you is fasting he should neither indulge in obscene language nor should he raise his voice in anger. If someone attacks him or insults him, let him say: “I am fasting!” (Muslim)
YoungerBrother says that the arabic for ‘I am fasting’ referred to in the hadith is “Ana sawm”.
