What To Say When Angry

"Two men abused one another in the presence of the Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) and one of them began to get angry and his face got red. The Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) looked at him and said, 'I know some words that, if he says them, will remove this from him. They are, ‘I seek refuge with Allah from the Accursed Shaytan.’" [Bukhari]

The first cure for anger is to say "audhu billahi minash-shaytan nir-rajeem" which means, “I seek refuge with Allah from the Accursed Shaytan.” What does this have to do with curing anger? Since anger comes from Shaytan, you should seek refuge with Allah from the accursed Shaytan.

After this, think of Allah’s punishment. Allah has more power over you than you have over that person. Just as you are angry at someone today, what if Allah ta’ala becomes angry and decrees to punish you. What will you be able to do then?

Think of Allah. Think of His power and punishment. When an angry person does not think of these things, it proves that he has become ensnared in the clutches of Shaytaan. How is it possible that in spite of being Momineen we forget Allah at such moments?
