don't angry

Hadith 16 Arabic text

Abu Hurairah, radiyallahu 'anhu, reported that a man said to the Prophet, sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam:

"Advise me! "The Prophet said, "Do not become angry and furious." The man asked (the same) again and again, and the Prophet said in each case, "Do not become angry and furious."


There are four views, of which two of them are from the earlier scholars and the other two are from the contemporary scholars, about the interpretation of the Prophet's, sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam, statement "Do not get angry":

  1. A person should learn how to change his character and adapt the characteristics of generosity, kindness, calmness, modesty, patience and forgiving. If a person adapts these qualities, then he may be able to restrain himself when he is about to get angry.

  2. One should not act based on anger or while being angry.

  3. When a person is about to get angry, he should control himself, be patient and not get angry. This is a contemporary view from Sheikh Al-Bitar.

  4. Ustaz Jamaluddin Zarabozo says that the text can be interpreted in the following way: a Muslim must think before acting or speaking. As soon as the feeling of anger appears to oneself, then there is a need to think of why the anger appears and whether it is necessary to be angry. While asking these questions, the person must remember Allah and the Hereafter (Akhirah). This will cause the person to calm down and not get angry.


Socially, this hadith promotes better relationship among people. We need to restrain anger and be patient. We may dislike something in this life but it may have benefits that we do not know.

Our patience towards others who have been harsh on us may later lead them to think and change themselves to be better. Muslims need to set models for others to learn from.

my komeng:

bile seseorang bercakap dlm keadaan marah, ketahuilah bahawasanya, saat itu,segala ape yg dia katakan adalah di luar kawalan. dan janganlah kita amik kisah dgn ape yg dikatakannya kerana dia tidak lagi bercakap atas dasar rasional sebaliknye emosi semata2. maka,lupekan apa yg dikatakannya dan tunggulah dia reda dgn kemarahannya, dan minta penjelasan semula (jika perlu).

mu'min yg kuat adalah mu'min yg mampu mengawal marahnya..
