Controlling Emotions and Anger

Controlling one’s emotions and anger is extremely important for the success of the individual to be able to get along well with different kinds of people. One can also avoid the results of anger, such as the physiological and psychological disturbances and the personal clashes which lead to feuds and aggressions.

Among the verses that could be of benefit during one’s anger and which should be remembered and often repeated during and after seclusion therapy sessions is where Allah says: ”Repel (Evil) with what is better: then will he between whom and thee was hatred become as it were thy friend and intimate!”.

Repeating this verse, as well as others, has a profound effect on one’s self. There are similar verses that drive away fears and anxieties related to anger as where Allah says: ”But indeed if any show patience and forgive, that would truly be an exercise of courageous will and resolution in the conduct of affairs”. And the verse ” But forgive them, and overlook (their misdeeds): for God loveth those who are kind”.
