About Anger (254)
Allah the Exalted said in translation: <<And if (at any time) an incitement to discord is made to you by shaytãn, seek refuge i n Allah, He is the One Who hears and knows all things.>> (257)

Sulaymãn bin Surdin said: I was sitting with the Messenger of Allah and two men were insulting each other, the face of one of them had become red, and his jugular veins had puffed up, so the Messenger of Allah said:"I surely know a word, would he have said it, that which he is experiencing would have left him. If he had said: 'A'outhu bil-lãhi minash-shaytãnir-rajeemi,(258)

that which he is experiencing would have gone away from him".

(257) Surat Fussilat (#41) V. 36

(258) I solicit Allah's protection from the despicable shaytãn.
