2 Easy and Effective Dua for Anger.

Dua for Anger control in Islam: “AUZUBILLAH MINA’S SHAITAN NIR RA JEEM”

The Prophet (ﷺ) said, “I know a word that can make his anger go away. If he says, ‘A’oodhu Billaahi min alshaytaan’ (I seek protection from Allah from Shaitan), his anger will go away.” (al-Bukhaari, al-Fath, 6/377).

Anger can be a strong emotion. When someone learns to control their anger (Through patience and dua for anger) with wisdom and follows the teachings of Allah and his prophet (ﷺ), it can lead to positive outcomes. It’s important to understand anger and avoid acting impulsively, as this can bring about good results.

In a moment, I will explain what I mean by giving an exemplary example of the courageous Lion of ALLAH SWT in the battle of Khandaq.

While feeling angry is normal and something everyone experiences, it becomes problematic when it takes control and drives someone to behave in unacceptable ways. Some believe that anger can be used as a tool by negative forces, but individuals need to learn how to manage and express their anger in healthy and constructive ways.

According to a study at Counsellingforkids.co.uk, more than one out of every ten people (12%) have difficulty managing their anger. Additionally, more than one in four individuals (28%) admit feeling concerned about how angry they can get. Surprisingly, one in every five people (20%) report that they terminated a relationship or friendship because of how they acted when angry.

Dua for anger

A short story of Imam Ali in the battle of Khandaq.

A short story of Valiant Lion of ALLAH SWT Imam Ali a.s. for all of us as a lesson. During the Battle of the Ditch (battle of Khandaq), the noble Imam Ali found himself in a critical moment. He had knocked an enemy soldier to the ground and was preparing to strike him down with his sword.

However, something unexpected happened. The enemy soldier who was in great pain, often called a “Kafir,” showed great disrespect by spitting in the face of the Valiant Lion Imam Ali a.s.

In response to this disrespectful act, Imam Ali did something remarkable. He immediately halted, lowered his sword, and stepped away from his fallen adversary. He chose not to take the life of his enemy, even though he had the opportunity to do so.

The bewildered enemy soldier in pain asked Imam Ali, “Why did you stop? You had the chance to end my life. Why did you spare me?”

Imam Ali’s response revealed his noble character and commitment to higher principles. He replied, “I hold no personal grievance (grudges) against you. My fight was not driven by personal anger or a desire for revenge.

I engaged in battle with you because of your disbelief and rebellion against ALLAH SWT. If I had taken your life after you spat in my face, it would have been an act driven by my anger and desire for vengeance. That is not the path I choose to follow.”

Imam Ali exemplified his bravery and unwavering dedication to righteousness and forgiveness in this decisive moment.

The Importance of Controlling Anger (Dua for anger).

If the believer or the angry person sees himself in the mirror when angry, they might not like how they look. Their face can turn red, and they might shake a lot. They might act like they’re not themselves. They might feel embarrassed about how they seem on the outside. But what’s important to remember is that the bad feelings inside a person can be even worse than how they look on the outside. The Satan, the bad influence, is happy when someone is so angry. Thus, controlling anger for believers is a sign of strong faith.

The Quranic perspective on dua for anger control.

Having firm control over Anger is a sign of a believer, and ALLAH SWT has promised the believers paradise. In Surah Ali’Imran verse 134, ALLAH SWT says, “They are the ones who give in times of prosperity and adversity, control their Anger, and forgive others. And ALLAH SWT loves those who do good.”

Anger is a natural emotion that every human possesses, and it is also impossible to avoid it, but it is possible to control and understand Anger and master it.

When a human being becomes angry, whether by provocation or hardships, he has the choice to act in a way that pleases ALLAH SWT or in a way that delights the devil.

The Hadiths on dua for Anger in Islam.

Our beloved Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ) has taught us how to live life as a believer, and when we get angry, we must try to act in a way full of divine wisdom and knowledge.

Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ) once said, “If someone successfully restrains their anger when they could have easily let it out, Allah the Most High will call them on the Day of Resurrection and grant them the choice of rewarding blessings.” He also shared, “In the eyes of ALLAH SWT, who is Majestic and Glorious, there is nothing more commendable than swallowing back one’s anger to please Him.”

Once, a man approached Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ) and asked, “Messenger of God, please teach me some simple words to live by. Keep them brief so I can remember.” Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ) advised, “Do not let anger overpower you.”

In the teachings of the Prophet (ﷺ), we can find guidance on managing Anger when it arises. The Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ) said, “If you get angry while standing, sit down. If this doesn’t calm your Anger, then lie down.”

Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ) also suggested that performing ablution can help manage Anger. He explained, “Anger comes from Satan, and Satan was created from fire. Fire is extinguished with water. So, when you’re angry, perform ablution.

Which Surah remmoves anger?

Surah for anger.

Surah Al-Shurah:37 removes anger and prevents the believer from acting in an evil way that pleases the Devil. Anger is like a small fire that can quickly get out of control. 

We need to put it out with water to stop it from spreading and causing harm. In this case, “water” means performing wudu (ablution), a cleansing ritual in Islam. When someone is angry, they should start by making wudu.

After making wudu, the person can recite specific verses from the Holy Quran, such as Ayat-ul-Kursi, found in the third para (section) and the second Ruku (part) of the Quran. Reciting these verses can help calm the person down because anger is believed to come from Satan.

Giving the person some space to cool down when angry and encouraging them to follow this remedy is necessary. This way, the anger will gradually fade away. Using this remedy when angry can prevent later regrets and help maintain peace and harmony.

What Dua is used to control anger and anxiety?

Anger is a feeling that sometimes comes from a lousy influence called Shaitan. Only Allah knows how much trouble and wrong things can happen because of it. In Islam, there is a lot of advice about this bad feeling, and the Prophet (ﷺ) has ways to help with it. 

Here are some of Dua to control anger:

Asking Allah for protection from Shaitan: Once, the Prophet (ﷺ) was with some people who were mad at each other. One person was very angry, and you could see the anger on his face and neck. 

The Prophet (ﷺ) said, “I know a word that can make his anger go away. If he says, ‘A’oodhu Billaahi min alshaytaan’ (I seek protection from Allah from Shaitan), his anger will go away.” (al-Bukhaari, al-Fath, 6/377).

Saying ‘A’oodhu billah’ when angry: The Prophet (ﷺ) also said, “If a person gets angry and says ‘A’oodhu Billah’ (I seek protection from Allah), their anger will stop.” (This is from Saheeh al-Jaami’ al-Sagheer, no. 695).

Staying quiet: The Messenger of ALLAH SWT said, “If any of you get angry, you should stay quiet.” (This is from Imaam Ahmad, al-Musnad, 1/239; Saheeh al-Jaami’, 693, 4027).

Is it a sin to be angry?

Anger, joy, and grief are just natural emotions of a human being, and it is not haram, but when one encounters such feelings, he must not act in a way that displeases ALLAH SWT. You won’t be held responsible for whatever you feel in your heart. Instead, you are only responsible for what you do with your hands and the words you speak with your mouth, not for anything else.
