at-Tazkirah: التذكرة

“And keep reminding, because reminding benefits the believers.” (51:55)

To-Do’s at the Time of Anger


by Hadhrat Maulana Shah Abrarul Haq Sahab (damat barkatuhum)

One should read the following daily so many times that one remembers it at the time of Ghazab (anger).

  1. To read the whole “A’uzubillah”.
  2. To make Wudhu (ablution).
  3. To sit down if one is standing and to lay down if one is staying.
  4. To go away from the person one is angry with or to remove him.
  5. To sit in the company of someone righteous.
  6. To engage oneself in remembrance of Allah, also in reciting Durood Sharif (invocation of blessing upon our Prophet Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam).
  7. To try ones utmost not to talk. To refrain from any dealings, that could anger one.
  8. To contemplate on that anger destroys Iman (belief) like ??? destroys honey.
  9. To contemplate on the following: One is an offender of Allah as well and if ones sins cause similar anger it would be very difficult to gain Nijat (salvation). Also by pardoning the errors of others it is hoped that one’s own will be ultimatively forgiven. So, it is better to pardon the person one’s angry with.
  10. When one acts against the prescribed guidelines, then to give from a span of 0.50 till 10 Rupee in charity and to offer 4 Nafl Raka’ats (voluntary cycles) of prayer.
