Abu Hurayrah (ra) relates that our beloved Prophet (saws) said: “Whoever believes in Allah and the Last Day should speak a good word or remain silent.
[Bukhari and Muslim]
I was planning on writing a blog post condemning the creators of the antivirus soft virus to a very horrible and painful punishment in the hereafter. But, several hours removed from the crisis it caused, I’ve managed to calm myself down and reflect on my state and on my reaction.
When our beloved Prophet (saws) found Aisha angry, he told her to say:
Allahumma Ghfirli dhanbi, wa adhhib ghaydha qalbi, wa aajirni min ash-shaytan
O Allah, forgive my sin, remove the anger in my heart, and protect me from Satan.
[Ibn al-Sunni, as mentioned in Barkawi’s Tariqa al-Muhammadiyya]
Why am I angry? What good can come from my anger? And if there is no good, then why remain angry?
