Ramadan Reminder 13

Bismillaah.

Calm your nerves and try not to lose your self-control over anyone or anything.  No doubt there will be people, things, circumstances that annoy, frustrate, and anger us.  But if we remember that Allaah loves those who control their temper, and the great reward that He promises them, we would be more keen on maintaining our self-control, only allowing ourselves to become angry for the sake of Allaah.

Allaah, Most High said: “Those who repress anger, and who pardon men: verily Allaah loves the good-doers.” (Qur’an, Aal-Imran: 134)

The prophet – peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him – said: “Whoever controls his temper Allaah will save him from punishment, and who so ever safe guard’s his tongue Allaah will conceal his sins.” (At-Tabarani)
