There is so much wisdom in these posts. Pondering and meditating over them is all you need to help you both tackle and manage anger when it arises.

These quotes are all profound, yet my personal favourite are the words of Rumi...just so beautiful to reflect upon..enjoy.


“He who is victorious over his passion at the time of anger is the strongest among you".   

The Messenger of Allah ﷺ 

"Raise your words, not your voice.  It is rain that grows flowers not thunder".   

Rumi

"Anybody can become angry - that is easy, but to be angry with the right person and to the right degree and at the right time and for the right purpose, and in the right way - that is not within everybody's power and is not easy".

Aristotle

He who angers you controls you."

Imam Ali (AS)

"Protect yourself from anger for its beginning is insanity and its end is remorse.”

Imam Ali (AS)

"When anger rises, think of the consequences".

Confucius

 “Whosoever is angry with someone let him sit down immediately if he is standing; for, indeed, doing so will repel from him the uncleanliness of Satan. And whoever gets angry with his family member let him approach and (gently) touch him; for the feeling of family affiliation, when stimulated by touch, induces calmness.”

Imam al-Baqir (AS)
