الحديث السادس عشر
«عن أبي هريرة رضي الله تعالى عنه أن رجلا قال للنبي صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم: أوصني، قال لا تغضب فردد مرارا، قال لا تغضب» .
رواه البخاري.

On the authority of Abu Hurayrah (RA): A man said to the Prophet (SAW), "Counsel me," so he (SAW) said, "Do not become angry." The man repeated [his request for counsel] several times, and [each time] he (SAW) said, "Do not become angry." It was related by al-Bukhari.


A human emotion depicting fury and rage
-if someone has anger management problem you should avoid him
-a person becomes angry because things didn't go as expected
-traffic jam is an example
-people get angry because they are disappointed
-if you are humiliated or disrespected by your wife you will be angry
-people become angry because their livelihood is threatened or taken away

And those who invoke not any other ilah (god) along with Allah, nor kill such life as Allah has forbidden, except for just cause, nor commit illegal sexual intercourse and whoever does this shall receive the punishment. (Al-Furqan 25:68)

-people become angry when their religion is ridiculed and insulted
-people become angry when their land is occupied
-this took place in Afghanistan, Kashmir and Chechnya
-people become angry when you drag their honour through the gutters
-Joe Grind means the lover of the wife
-a women made a song about not leaving her lover, the husband killed both
-then when cornered he killed himself
-this was a crime of passion

Al-Mughira b. Shu'ba (RA) reported that Sa'd b. 'Ubada (RA) said: If I were to see a man with my wife, I would have struck him with the sword, and not with the flat part (side) of it. When Allah's Messenger (PBUH) heard of that, he said: Are you surprised at Sa'd's jealousy of his honour? By Allah, I am more jealous of my honour than he, and Allah is more jealous than I. Because of His jealousy Allah has prohibited abomination, both open and secret And no person is more jealous of his honour than Allah, and no persons, is more fond of accepting an excuse than Allah, on account of which He has sent messengers, announcers of glad tidings and warners; and no one is more fond of praise than Allah on account of which Allah has promised Paradise. [Sahih Muslim, Book 9, Hadith #3572]

-in a nutshell there are six sacred things

1) Your life

2) Your wealth

It was narrated that Abu Hurayrah (RA) said: A man came to the Messenger of Allah (SAW) and said: O Messenger of Allah, what do you think if a man comes wanting to take my property? He said: “Do not give him your property.” He said: What if he fights me? He said: “Fight him.” He said: What if he kills me? He said: “Then you will be a martyr.” He said: What if I kill him? He said: “He will be in Hell.” [Sahih Muslim (Vol. 1, pg. 124) No. 140]

3) Your Honour

4) Your Aql (intellect)

You become angry when the drug smugglers smuggle drugs into your country
-in Thailand and Saudi Arabia they chop off the heads of the drug smugglers

5. Your Lineage

A man is angry when he finds another man with his wife
-he kills them and himself because his lineage is being tampered with

6. Deen (Al Islam)

You become angry when a person ridicules your deen
-the incident in Libya attest to this

The rasul (saw) said that if you are annoyed or pricked by a thorn then your sins are forgiven

A’isha (RA), the wife of the Prophet (SAW), said: The Messenger of Allah (SAW) said: “There is no calamity that befalls a Muslim but Allah expiates (sin) thereby, even a thorn that pricks him.” [Narrated by al-Bukhari (5640) and Muslim (2572)]

The difficulties and distress that the believer may suffer as a result of this waswaas may be included in the hadeeth of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him), “No Muslim suffers tiredness, exhaustion, worry, grief, annoyance or distress, not even a thorn that pricks him, but Allaah will expiate some of his sins thereby.” (al-Bukhaari, 2573; Muslim, 5642).

There are two types of anger:

1. Anger for no valid reason, this is blame worthy
2. Anger for the sake of Allah; this is praiseworthy

-there are many incidences in hadiths that shows that
-the rasul (saw) got angry for the sake of Allah
-this anger causes your sins to be washed away


1. One of the sahabah used to lead salah and recite long surahs
-some sahabah stayed away from the salah because they could not cope
-he (the rasul) became angry when he knew he recited long surahs

Abu Hurayra reported that the Messenger of Allah (SAW) said, "When any of you lead other people in prayer, you should make it short, for among you are there are weak, sick and old people. [One version adds: "And those who have a need to attend to."] When you pray by yourself, you can make it as long as you wish." [al-Bukhari (703) and Muslim (467)]

2. A woman used to borrow expensive jewelry from women and refuse to return them

-the rasul ordered her hand to be cut because she was a thief
-Usaama when to intercede for her and the rasul (saw) became angry

The wife of the Holy Prophet (saw) said: “Usama approached the Prophet (to intercede) on behalf of a (rich) woman who had committed theft. The Holy Prophet said, ‘The people before you were destroyed because they used to inflict the legal punishments on the poor and forgive the rich. By Him in whose Hand my soul is! If Fatima (the daughter of the Prophet) did that (i.e. stole) I would cut off her hand’”. (Sahih al Bukhari Vol.8 pg.512 No.778 and No.779)

3. The rasul (saw) came home and found Aisha (r.a) had put some pictures on the wall
-the angels don't enter homes where there are pictures of animals and human beings

Narrated By 'Aisha: I purchased a cushion with pictures on it. The Prophet (came and) stood at the door but did not enter. I said (to him), "I repent to Allah for what (the guilt) I have done." He said, "What is this cushion?" I said, "It is for you to sit on and recline on." He said, "The makers of these pictures will be punished on the Day of Resurrection and it will be said to them, 'Make alive what you have created.' Moreover, the angels do not enter a house where there are pictures.'" [Sahih Bukhari, Vol 7, Book 72, Hadith #840]

-the scholars made an exceptions for toys
-because Aisha had a toy of a horse
-and the rasul (saw) didn't object
-cartoons are also allowed (educational cartoons)

4. He found Umar Ibn Al Khattab (r.a) reading the Torah
-and he became angry

`Umar -- Allah be well-pleased with him -- came to the Prophet -- Allah bless and greet him -- and said: "We hear from the Jews narrations that impress us, do you think we should write down some of them?" The Prophet -- Allah bless and greet him -- replied: "Are you all going to fall into the same chaos (amutahawwikun) in which fell the Jews and Christians? I brought it [the Religion] to you pristine and pure. If Musa were alive, he would have no alternative but to follow me!" Narrated from Jabir by al-Bayhaqi in Shu`ab al-Iman (1:200) and mursal from al-Hasan by al-Khatib in al-Jami` li Akhlaq al-Rawi (1991 ed. 2:228 #1531=1983 ed. 2:161) with weak chains.

5. Zubair and another sahabi had a dispute and the rasul (saw) said
-that Zubair should irrigate first
-the sahabi asked whether is because he is his relative
-that is why he ruled in that manner
-the rasul became angry at that

Abu Dawud recorded that `A'ishah, may Allah be pleased with her, said, "The Messenger of Allah came back from the campaign of Tabuk or Khaybar, and there was a curtain covering her room. The wind came and lifted the curtain, revealing some toys belonging to `A'ishah, may Allah be pleased with her. The Prophet said: «مَا هَذَا يَا عَائِشَةُ؟» (What is this, O `A'ishah) She, may Allah be pleased with her, said, "My toys.'' Among them he saw a horse with two wings made of cloth. He said: «مَا هَذَا الَّذِي أَرَى وَسَطَهُنَّ؟»
(What is this that I see in the midst of them) She, may Allah be pleased with her, said, "A horse.'' The Messenger of Allah said, «مَا هَذَا الَّذِي عَلَيْهِ؟» (And what is this on it) She, may Allah be pleased with her, said, "Wings.'' The Messenger of Allah said, «فَرَسٌ لَهُ جَنَاحَانِ؟» (A horse with two wings) She, may Allah be pleased with her, said, "Did you not hear that Sulayman, peace be upon him, had a horse that had wings'' She, may Allah be pleased with her, said, "The Messenger of Allah smiled so broadly that I could see his molars.'' [Sunan Abu Dawud (4/283) No. 4932]

We should only get angry for the sake of Allah not for our own nafs
-Ali (r.a) got spat in his face by a kaafir in the battlefield
-he didn't kill him saying if he does he will not kill him for Allah's sake
-but because of what he did (spatting in his face)

Say (O Muhammad SAW): "Verily, my Salāt (prayer), my sacrifice, my living, and my dying are for Allāh, the Lord of the 'Alamīn (mankind, jinns and all that exists). (Al-An'am 6:162)

Even Allah (swt) becomes angry (surah Fatiha)

Guide us to the Straight Way. (Al-Fatihah 1:6)

The Way of those on whom You have bestowed Your Grace , not (the way) of those who earned Your Anger (such as the Jews), nor of those who went astray (such as the Christians). (Al-Fatihah 1:7)

-if you are not a salafi jihadi then you are among the ones gone astray
-on whom Allah (swt) is angry

The Saudi salafis are cursed because they cement the thrones of the apostate leaders
-calling for jihad against the mujahideen
-you should not even spit at their grave
-that is too precious
-they are the jews of the Ummah



The Jews are cursed because:

1. They slander the prophets

2. They slander Allah (3:181)

Indeed, Allāh has heard the statement of those (Jews) who say: "Truly, Allāh is poor and we are rich!" We shall record what they have said and their killing of the Prophets unjustly, and We shall say: "Taste you the torment of the burning (Fire)." (Aali Imran 3:181)

(Verily Allah heard the saying of those who said…) [3:181]. ‘Ikrimah, al-Suddi and Muqatil ibn Ishaq related that, one day, Abu Bakr al-Siddiq entered a Jewish place of study and found a group of Jewish people gathered around one of them called Finhas ibn ‘Azura, who was one of their doctors. Abu Bakr said to Finhas: “Fear Allah and embrace Islam, for by Allah you know well that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah who has brought the truth to you from Allah. He is mentioned in your Torah; so believe and accept the truth and grant Allah a goodly offering and He will make you enter the Garden and multiply your reward”. Finhas responded: “O Abu Bakr, you claim that our Lord is asking us to lend Him our wealth. Yet, it is only the poor who borrow from the rich. And if what you say is true, it follows that Allah is poor and we are rich, for if He were rich He would not ask us to lend Him our wealth”. Abu Bakr al-Siddiq, may Allah be well pleased with him, became very angry and struck the face of Finhas with a mighty blow. He then said to him: “By Him in whose Hand is my soul, if it were not for the treaty between us, O enemy of Allah, I would have killed you”. Finhas went to the Messenger of Allah, Allah bless him and give him peace, and said: “O Muhammad! Look at what your companion has done to me”. The Messenger of Allah, Allah bless him and give him peace, asked Abu Bakr: “What has driven you to do what you have done?” He said: “O Messenger of Allah, this enemy of Allah has said something very serious. He claimed that Allah is poor and they are rich. I therefore got angry for the sake of Allah and hit his face”. But Finhas denied that he ever uttered those words, and so Allah, exalted is He, revealed this verse (Verily Allah heard the saying of those who said…) to give the lie to Finhas and to confirm that Abu Bakr al-Siddiq said the truth. ‘Abd al-Qahir ibn Tahir informed us> Abu ‘Amr ibn Matar> Ja‘far ibn al-Layth al-Ziyadi> Hudhayfah Musa ibn Mas‘ud> Shibl> Ibn Abi Najih> Mujahid who said: “This verse was revealed about the Jews; Abu Bakr, may Allah be well pleased with him, had struck the face of one of their men who said ‘Allah is poor and we are rich’ ”. Shibl commented: “I was informed that this man was Finhas the Jew, and it is also this man who said: (Allah’s hand is fettered) [5:64]”. [Asbab Al-Nuzul by Al-Wahidi , trans. Mokrane Guezzou]

3. They practiced black magic

They followed what the Shayātin (devils) gave out (falsely of the magic) in the lifetime of Sulaimān (Solomon). Sulaimān did not disbelieve, but the Shayātin (devils) disbelieved, teaching men magic and such things that came down at Babylon to the two angels, Hārût and Mārût, but neither of these two (angels) taught anyone (such things) till they had said, "We are only for trial, so disbelieve not (by learning this magic from us)." And from these (angels) people learn that by which they cause separation between man and his wife, but they could not thus harm anyone except by Allāh's Leave. And they learn that which harms them and profits them not. And indeed they knew that the buyers of it (magic) would have no share in the Hereafter. And how bad indeed was that for which they sold their ownselves, if they but knew. (Al-Baqarah 2:102)

4. They mix truth with falsehood

5. They hide knowledge

And indeed, We gave Mûsa (Moses) the Book and followed him up with a succession of Messengers. And We gave 'Iesa (Jesus), the son of Maryam (Mary), clear signs and supported him with Rûh-ul-Qudus [Jibrael (Gabriel)]. Is it that whenever there came to you a Messenger with what you yourselves desired not, you grew arrogant? Some, you disbelieved and some, you killed. (Al-Baqarah 2:87)

Another hujjah of Allah's anger is 4:93

And whoever kills a believer intentionally, his recompense is Hell to abide therein, and the Wrath and the Curse of Allāh are upon him, and a great punishment is prepared for him. (An-Nisa 4:93)'

Different people have different threshold for anger
-people have different reasons that anger them
-some people are quick to anger because of their environment
-they were brought up in a bad environment
-and they were abused from every angle
-and hence they are angry at everyone

...It is said that he (sallallahu aleihi wa sallam) mentioned anger, saying, "Some are swift to anger and swift to cool down, the one characteristic making up for the other; some are slow to anger and slow to cool down, the one characteristic making up for the other; but the best of you are those who are slow to anger and swift to cool down, and the worst of you are those who are swift to anger and slow to cool down." He continued, "Beware of anger, for it is a live coal on the heart of the descendant of Adam. Do you not notice the swelling of the veins of his neck and the redness of his eyes? So when anyone experiences anything of that nature he should lie down and cleave to the earth." Hadith - Al-Tirmidhi #5145, Narrated Abu Sa'id al-Khudri, transmitted by Tirmidhi


Some people are prone to anger because of the drugs they take
-the smokers are prone to anger

Do a character check on the man proposing to you before you accept
-you should not marry a man with a short fuse
-some of these are from dysfunctional and broken homes


-this is why Allah told you not to ridicule people
-you might tease a man with a short fuse and he'll be the last man you tease
-because he'll kill you

O you who believe! Let not a group scoff at another group, it may be that the latter are better than the former; nor let (some) women scoff at other women, it may be that the latter are better than the former, nor defame one another, nor insult one another by nicknames. How bad is it, to insult one's brother after having Faith [i.e. to call your Muslim brother (a faithful believer) as: "O sinner", or "O wicked", etc.]. And whosoever does not repent, then such are indeed Zālimûn (wrong-doers, etc.). (Al-Hujurat 49:11)

-physical, financial, sexual abuse

Abu Huraira narrated the Prophet (SAW) said: “The one who gets married with the intention not to pay dowry to his wife is a fornicator. And the one who borrows money with the intention not to pay back is a thief.” [Ibn Hibban in ‘al-Majruheen’ (2/261) No. 941]

Suhaib al-Khair narrated the Messenger of Allah (SAW) said: "Any man who takes out a loan, having resolved not to pay it back, will meet Allah as a thief." [Sunan Ibn Majah (3/486) No. 2410]


Narrated By Ibn Abbas: The Prophet sent Mu'adh to Yemen and said, "Fear the supplication of the oppressed, for there is no barrier between it and Allah." [al-Bukhari (1496) and Muslim (19)]

-the Rohingha Muslims are being oppressed
-the rubbish organization (UN) said nothing about it

Verily, those who have turned back (have apostated) as disbelievers after the guidance has been manifested to them, Shaitān (Satan) has beautified for them (their false hopes), and (Allāh) prolonged their term (age). (Muhammad 47:25) This is because they said to those who hate what Allāh has sent down: "We will obey you in part of the matter," but Allāh knows their secrets. (Muhammad 47:26)

-sometimes is because of the genes
-jinn are quicker to anger than humans
-because they were created from fire

Atiyyah as-Sa'di reported the Messenger of Allah (SAW) said: "Anger comes from the devil, the devil was created of fire, and fire is extinguished only with water; so when one of you becomes angry, he should perform ablution. [Sunan Abu Dawud (4/249) No. 4784 and Musnad Ahmad (4/226) No. 18014]

-the Whiteman and the Blackman are different
-the Whiteman covers his tracks but the Blackman doesn't

Those who spend [in Allāh's Cause - deeds of charity, alms, etc.] in prosperity and in adversity, who repress anger, and who pardon men; verily, Allāh loves Al-Muhsinûn (the good¬doers). (Aali Imran 3:134)


Sahl ibn Mu’adh ibn Anas from his father reported that the Prophet (SAW) said, “As for him who suppresses his anger while he is able to express (and impose) it, Allah will call him on the Day of Resurrection ahead of all the creatures and give him the choice of any of the maidens of paradise he likes.” [Sunan Tirmidhi (4/656) No. 2493, Sunan Abu Dawud (4/248) No. 4777, Sunan Ibn Majah (5/280) No. 4186, Musnad Ahmad (3/440) No. 15675]

Abu Huraira reported Allah's Messenger (SAW) as saying: "The strong-man is not one who wrestles well but the strong man is one who controls himself when he is in a fit of rage." [al-Bukhari (6114) and Muslim (2609)]

1. Find out what triggers your anger and avoid those places and people

2. Find out what food and drink triggers your anger and avoid them

3. Go for counseling with your local shaikh or imam

4. Be in the company of those people who love and appreciate and respect you

5. Be among the Tulab al ilm (the students) and the scholars

6. Seek refuge from shaytan

Narrated By Sulaiman bin Surd: While I was sitting in the company of the Prophet, two men abused each other and the face of one of them became red with anger, and his jugular veins swelled (i.e. he became furious). On that the Prophet said, "I know a word, the saying of which will cause him to relax, if he does say it. If he says: 'I seek Refuge with Allah from Satan.' then all is anger will go away."... [Sahih Bukhari (4/124) No. 3282]

7. When you are angry keep silent
-you might say something that you will regret

Ibn 'Abbas reported that the Messenger of Allah (SAW) said, "Teach and make things easy and not difficult. When one of you is angry, he should be silent." [al-Adab al-Mufrad al-Bukhari No. 245, Musnad Ahmad (1/239) No. 2136, Musannaf Ibn Abi Shaybah (5/216) No. 25379]

8. Either sit or lie down

Abu Dharr narrated the Messenger of Allah (SAW) said: "If any of you becomes angry and he is standing, let him sit down, so his anger will go away; if it does not go away, let him lie down." [Sunan Abu Dawud (4/249) No. 4782, Musnad Ahmad (5/152) No. 21386, Sahih Ibn Hibban (12/501) No. 5688, Shu'ab al-Eman al-Bayhaqi (10/526) No. 7932]

9. Listen to the advice of the righteous
-this was what Umar (r.a) did
-when he heard the ayah he calmed down
-Umar got angry and Al Hurr Bin Qass advised him using 7:199

Show forgiveness, enjoin what is good, and turn away from the foolish (i.e. don't punish them). (Al-A'raf 7:199)

Ibn ‘Abbaas (may Allaah be pleased with him) reported that a man sought permission to speak to ‘Umar ibn al-Khattaab (may Allaah be pleased with him), then he said: "O son of al-Khattaab, you are not giving us much and you are not judging fairly between us." ‘Umar (may Allaah be pleased with him) was so angry that he was about to attack the man, but al-Hurr ibn Qays, who was one of those present, said: "O Ameer al-Mu’mineen, Allaah said to His Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) (interpretation of the meaning): ‘Show forgiveness, enjoin what is good, and turn away from the foolish’ [al-A’raaf 7:199]. This man is one of the foolish." By Allaah, ‘Umar could go no further after al-Hurr had recited this aayah to him, and he was a man who was careful to adhere to the Book of Allaah. (Reported by al-Bukhaari, al-Fath, 4/304).

10. Make wudu
-when you are angry your eyes are red
-and you are hot
-anger is from shaytan and he was created from fire
-so wudu helps put off the anger

Atiyyah as-Sa'di reported the Messenger of Allah (SAW) said: "Anger comes from the devil, the devil was created of fire, and fire is extinguished only with water; so when one of you becomes angry, he should perform ablution. [Sunan Abu Dawud (4/249) No. 4784 and Musnad Ahmad (4/226) No. 18014]

11. Make dhikr
-Keep making dhikr until you cool down

….and the remembering (praising, etc.) of (you by) Allāh (in front of the angels) is greater indeed [than your remembering (praising, etc.) Allāh in prayers, etc.]. And Allāh knows what you do. (Al-'Ankabut 29:45)

12. Make a dua

13. Leave the environment that makes you become angry
-if you are married and you get angry from it often
-you should get away from it (divorce)

The man who killed 100 people had to leave his environment to make taubah

Abu Sa'id al-Khudri reported Allah's Messenger (SAW) as saying: There was a person before you who had killed ninety-nine persons and then made an inquiry about the learned persons of the world (who could show him the way to salvation). He was directed to a monk. He came to him and told him that he had killed ninety-nine persons and asked him whether there was any scope for his repentance to be accepted. He said: No. He killed him also and thus completed one hundred. He then asked about the learned persons of the earth and he was directed to a scholar, and he told him that he had killed one hundred persons and asked him whether there was any scope for his repentance to be accepted. He said: Yes; what stands between you and the repentance? You better go to such and such land; there are people devoted to prayer and worship and you also worship along with them and do not come to the land of yours since it was an evil land (for you). So he went away and he had hardly covered half the distance when death came to him and there was a dispute between the angels of mercy and the angels of punishment. The angels of mercy said: This man has come as a penitent and remorseful to Allah and the angels of punishment said: He has done no good at all. Then there came another angel in the form of a human being in order to decide between them. He said: You measure the land to which he has drawn near. They measured it and found him nearer to the land where he intended to go (the land of piety), and so the angels of mercy took possession of it. Qatada said that Hasan told him that it was said to them that as death approached him, he crawled upon his chest (and managed) to slip in the land of mercy. [Sahih Muslim, Book 37, Hadith #6662]


Shaikh how does a person make baraa from a Saudi salafi? For two years I used go jumuah. I know the creed everywhere i go around it makes me angry please advise me

-this problem is rife with the people in the UK
-because the Saudi salafis work with the gov't

You need to establish your own salatul jumuah
-with a group of brothers so you avoid making salah behind them
-because salah behind them is baatil
-they are 5 star kaafirs who hate Muslims


Shaikh, every time I go to the masjids and hear the imams preaching weak khutba, I get upset, do I get reward for my anger for the sake of Allah?

-yes if you get upset for the sake of Allah, you get barakah
-because you are practicing al walaa wal baraa
-you got upset because you love your deen and have jealousy for your deen
-you are not a dayooth


Can a man do DNA test if he believes lineage not correct? The second child doesn’t look like 1st one.

-there is no hadith or Qur'anic ayah that says DNA is haram
-it is up to you
-you can do DNA especially if your wife has dodgy character


What is the difference between fiqh and hadeeth, and how are they related? And how do the madhabs interconnect and related to these two subject matters?

-fiqh is Islamic jurisprudence learnt from Qur'an and hadith
-you knew it is haram to marry 2 sisters and live with them same time from Qur'an
-this is fiqh
-so you derive fiqh from Qur'an, hadith, Qiyas and ijmaa
-qiyas means analogy e.g. Allah did not say punishment for slave boy
-when he commits zina
-but the ulama said 50 lashes because that is the punishment for the slave girl

Narrated Um Habiba: I said, "O Allah's Apostle! Marry my sister, the daughter of Abu Sufyan." He said, "Do you like that?" I said, "Yes, for even now I am not your only wife; and the most beloved person to share the good with me is my sister." The Prophet said, "But that is not lawful for me (i.e., to be married to two sisters at a time.)" I said, "O Allah's Apostle! By Allah, we have heard that you want to marry Durra, the daughter of Abu Salama." He said, "You mean the daughter of Um Salama?" I said, "Yes." He said, "By Allah ! Even if she were not my stepdaughter, she would not be lawful for me to marry, for she is my foster niece, for Thuwaiba has suckled me and Abu Salama; so you should neither present your daughters, nor your sisters to me." [Sahih Bukhari, Volume 7, Book 62, Number #43]


Assalamu alaikum is it ok to wear gloves and niqab while praying?

-you are not allowed to pray in niqab
-this is bid'ah
-i don’t have evidence to say to pray in gloves is not allowed
