Are you Patient?

Rasulullah (SAW) said, “He who is victorious over his passion at the time of anger is the strongest among you. He who forgives having the power to release (his anger and take revenge) is the most patient among you.”(Al-Baihaqi in Shu’ab Al-Imaan)

Anger is the strongest emotion. In anger a person can go from a respectable being to an untamed animal. Islam asks its followers to control this emotion and be patient. Self-control is a key to it.  Our Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) has declared a person strongest as the one who controls his/her passion at the time anger. That person not only controls his/her anger but also adopts the approach of forgiveness. Restraining anger and avoiding to release it is a great sign of strength. It’s hard to do but with gradual practice it can be done.

So people esp. Muslims should learn self-control and forgive people!!!
