    Imams urge believers to control anger

    Azlan Othman

    When facing tests and obstacles, Muslims are urged to be patient and to control anger as it is a bad attitude and damages one’s pride. Although expressing anger is natural, believers should recite Zikir to calm down, said Imams in the Friday sermon yesterday.

    “Allah the Almighty created anger as a natural disposition for man. Among the source of anger include arrogance and thinking that they are superior to others; quarrel which sometimes is due to a minute and tedious matter; being oppressed; being reproached and betrayed; and joking excessively leading to cursing and hurting the feeling of others.”

    Imams added, “If one makes you angry, we should not seek revenge and make enemies.

    Anger should be controlled and we should forgive other’s mistake.

    “Blameworthy anger may be controlled in two ways – preventing anger with certain deeds and knowledge as well as contemplating exemplary stories. We should remind ourselves that anger can lead to animosity and we should also bear in mind of Allah the Almighty’s punishment. When reflecting on how despicable anger is, one will realise that anger stems from pride.

    “We are living in a nation, within a family and in a community. We need to enhance our bonds to live harmoniously, peacefully and in unity,” urged the imams.
