Getting angry is not in itself evil because it could aid the correction of evil. This complex nature in which emotion can appear as anger makes the control even more difficult. So, what does or should a Muslim do, in a state of anger? What standard(s) distinguishes the provision in Islam for the control and direction of this attribute of man? The Qur’an enjoins: “Those who spend (freely), whether in prosperity, or in adversity; who restrain anger, and pardon (all) men; for Allah loves those who do good.” Qur’an 3:134
Also, the model of Islamic practice, Muhammad (S.A.W) provides the following guidance:
Narrated Abu Dharr: The Apostle of Allah (S.A.W) said to us, “When one of you becomes angry while standing, he should sit down. If the anger leaves him, well and good; otherwise he should lie down.” Abu Dawud Collection
Narrated Atiyya as-Sa’di: …the Apostle of Allah (S.A.W) 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.” Abu Dawud Collection
What can be deduced from the Islamic provision in control of anger is the simple fact that the source is not unconnected with some form of denial, the only solution of which rests in giving. However, if you are of the culture of giving freely, willingly when you have surplus and when you have less than what you need, the likelihood of your emotion generating anger that will lead to evil is reasonably curtailed. You wouldn’t see yourself as cheated, disgraced or disappointed to warrant violence.
As for sexual passion, all people ordinarily have this need and there are a thousand and one ways of satisfying it. What distinguishes the control mechanism of Islam can be found in the following standard: Narrated Abdullah (r.a): We were with the prophet (S.A.W) while we were young and had no wealth whatever. So Allah’s Apostle (S.A.W) said, “O young people! Whoever among you can marry, should marry, because it helps him lower his gaze and guard his modesty (i.e. his private parts from committing illegal sexual intercourse etc.), and whosoever is not able to marry, should fast, as fasting diminishes his sexual power.” Bukhari Collection
Thus considering man’s emotion and its susceptibility to being misused or directed to achieve evil ends even unconsciously, the regret that will result has been checked in Islam.
