the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was approached by a man one day who asked him for advice and the prophets Allah, Allah, Allah wa sallam said to Bob, do not get angry. And the man, he asked for more advice, I guess maybe he thought that he already had that down. And the Prophet Muhammad slave said, um, responded in a surprising way, he repeated, let's talk about, don't get angry. And He repeated it, again, that don't get angry. And the importance of not getting angry should be obvious to everybody is that when you are in a state of anger, you do things that you would not otherwise do. It's almost like being drunk. And in some of the books effect, some of the

00:00:43 --> 00:01:24

jurists have talked about people who do things out of extreme anger as being very, very similar to people who are intoxicated. Because you're not in your right mind. They're going to say things, and you're going to do things that are going to hurt other people. And they're things that you can't ever get back. Once they're out in the world, they've affected somebody else, they've traumatized somebody else, that thing that you said, or that you did when you were in the state of anger, is going to affect that person's perception of you. And it's going to inform, and, and affect their interactions with you from that point forward. And you're never going to live it down. You

00:01:24 --> 00:01:42

basically, you might get, you might say, sorry, you might say, you know, I messed up, I'm sorry, forgive me, I was angry, and they might even forgive you. But that doesn't mean that it hasn't done or done some damage already. And that doesn't mean that you're going to be able to escape the consequences for acting out of anger. So the Prophet Muhammad says, send him

00:01:43 --> 00:02:18

He told us to cut the problem off at the root. Right? Try not to get angry in the first place. Because once you get angry, it's extremely difficult to restrain yourself and to reel yourself in and to adhere to rules and norms about what's the proper way to treat other people. Now, this hadith is special because the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa Salam is referring to a specific type of anger, that is bad, and that's anger, you know, between people that is unjust, that they don't deserve it.

00:02:19 --> 00:03:00

But there is a type of righteous anger. And that's something that the Prophet SAW, they said, and is not referring to here. And that is the anger that comes when you see other people being oppressed, especially when those other people are, they share the same faith as you they're Muslims. So don't think you know, people can misinterpret this hadith to mean that a Muslim should never ever, ever be angry. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam got angry when he saw that people were violating Allah's commands, or going against what Allah subhanaw taala told them. And when there were people in the land that were oppressors, and we're trying to dismantle and destroy everything that was good

00:03:00 --> 00:03:21

and sacred, the righteous people became angry. And that anger actually was the motivation that allowed them to pursue justice. So this is a specific type of anger that the prophesy centum is talking about. It has to do with your normal everyday interactions with your spouse, with your children, with your coworkers, your brothers and sisters, the people at the masjid.

00:03:22 --> 00:03:39

Things are gonna happen, someone's gonna say something or do something to you at some point that it's possible you could take it the wrong way or it's possible even that it is insulting to you, but the prophesy settlements telling us Don't get angry. Because when you do, that's when you lose control.
