Islamic Sayings on Anger (Ghadab), Prophetic Sayings

The Holy Prophet Muhammad (saw) said: "Anger corrupts faith in the same way that vinegar destroys honey."

Imam Jafar Sadiq (as) narrated on the authority of his father Imam Muhammad al-Baqir (as) that a Bedouin came to the Holy Prophet Muhammad (saw) and said: "I live in the desert; hence, I want you to instruct me the comprehensive of speech." The Holy Prophet Muhammad (saw) said: "I instruct you not to be angry." As the Bedouin repeated the same request three times, the Holy Prophet Muhammad (saw) repeated the answer three times. The Bedouin commented: "I will not ask you for anything any more. Certainly, the Holy Prophet Muhammad (saw) has instructed me the best."

Imam Jafar Sadiq (as) said: "Anger is the key (that opens the door) to all kinds of vices."

Imam Jafar Sadiq (as) said: "A Mu'min (believer) is the person who when angered, his anger doesn't lead him away from that which is true."

Imam Muhammad al-Baqir (as) said: "A man often becomes so angry that he is never pleased until this causes him to be in Hell."
