Evils Of Anger

Imaam Ibn Hajar Al-‘Asqalaani – rahimahullaah – said:

It is reported from Abu Hurairah radiyallaahu anhu- who said;- A man said:

Oh the Messenger of Allah -salallaahu alayhi wasallam advise me. The Messenger of Allah Salallaahu alayhi wasallam said:

“Do not get angry.” The man repeated that several times and the messenger of Allah salallaahu alayhi wasallam said again, “Do not get angry.”

Transmitted and recorded by Imaam Bukhaari in his “Sahih”#6116.



The hadith shows the importance of the following:

♦ It shows that it is disliked for one to get angry unnecessarily. Anger is a temptation of shaytaan and
deception of shaytaan.

It snatches away the wisdom of man and thus he become a brute beast devoid of any sense.

Anger is the root of all evils. Anger is a spark of fire that are always bursting. Anger is a very bad condition that weakens the person’s Imaan. Anger is a strong feeling of annoyance, displeasure and hostility.

♦ It indicates that one should avoid anything that might lead to anger. As human being, we have our emotions. We react in either positive or negative emotions.

Sometimes we may lose our logic and we cannot control our emotions and this make us behave in a strange way. Hence, for one to avoid this unnecessary emotion, one should shun anything that might erupt the anger. This is in accordance with the explanation of some scholars like Imam Attaabi.

♦ The anger that is unlawful is for one to become angry extremely. This type of anger normally initiates due to desires and hot temper. However, in a situation where there is the disobedience of Allah, then for one to get angry is lawful and wanted. If the limits of Allah are being transgressed upon and one is not angry, rather he is even happy and okay with it, that shows that one has an element of hypocrisy in his heart and his Imaan is extremely weak. In addition, anger is lawful in cases of religious affair’s when its honours are at stake.

It is an effective preventive measure to safeguard the dignity of man and the deen. A person who has no anger is called a coward because he has got no true faith in Allah. This type of person cannot achieve anything in uplifting his deen. If the messenger salallaahu alayhi wasallam is abused, he is not sad about it as far as his parents where not touched. The person fears the creation and not the creator.

Brothers beware!

Love for Allah’s sake. Hate and get angry for Allah’s sake. That shows that you are truly a believer and you care for the deen.

However, This doesn’t give the right for youngsters to become angry with parents when they don’t get what they want in terms of dunya affairs.

If one doesn’t practice Islam or disobeys the commands of Allah or one does not listen to his parents, then to become angry with such a person is lawful. But the person should not become too angry because in Islam extreme anger is unlawful, for it creates opposition and bitterness.

Allaahu A’alam!

Baarakallaahu feekum!
