Halal Anger Management

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم
In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Before you decide to knock someone out, curse someone out, write an indirect facebook status, or break a wall. Try these few thing's our Prophet Muhammad (SAW) suggested:

1. Turning to Allah SWT, and seeking refuge in Allah, from Satan.  "A'udoo billahi min a shaitain nir ajeem". Make dua, utter dhikr.

2. Silence.
Our beloved Prophet Muhammad (saw) stated: “If you get angry, stay silent.” [Ahmad].

3. Change your physical posture.
The Prophet (Allah bless him & give him peace) is reported to have said, “If you get angry while standing, sit down…. If you get angry while sitting, lie down.” The wisdom in this is that it prevents one from doing that which one’s anger would have made one do in that posture.

4. Perform ritual ablutions
The Prophet (SAW) informed us that anger is from Satan, and he was created from fire, so we should extinguish anger with ritual ablution's (wudu). [Abu Dawud]

“Speak when you are angry- and you will make the best speech you will ever regret” - Dr. Laurence J. PeterIf you must, write down your feeling's in a journal. When you have cooled off you can look over that and rectify any issue's with a clear head. Also if you find yourself getting angry too often, figure out what is causing that and perhaps remove yourself from it. It maybe something as simple as a facebook debate. Just say your piece and walk away, there's no need to get angry, even if the other person could do with a lesson in manner's and their mouth washed out with soap. By being rude they are simply handing over reward's to you on a plate. Smile and make them dua, let it go, you are better than that. Once you learn to let it go, you will find yourself happier in life so you can focus on what is important. If you get angry because you feel nobody listen's, talk to the person one to one. Communicate.  Do not let anything fester inside of you as it just becomes a mountain out of a molehill. If you want to blow off some steam from the general daily grind, invest in a punch bag or head to the gym. It does wonder's and it's a two fold win because you tone up whilst doing it, alhamdulilah. You could go pray 2 sunnah rakat, read The Quran, take 5 minute's to yourself.

Just don't let anger consume you and ruin your happy day.
