One word to discuss: Anger.
We all know what anger is, and we've all felt it; whether as a fleeting annoyance or as full-fledged rage.
Anger is a completely normal, usually healthy, human emotion. But when it gets out of control and turns destructive, it can lead to problems—problems at work, in your personal relationships, and even in the overall quality of your life.
So, everything will be depending on how you handle your anger, and where you vented out your anger.Will you still be a cool person or will you turn into a Godzilla in rage?
This social media, Facebook is the famous medium nowadays for people to venting out their displeasure, irritation, rage, anger, vexation, irks, wrath, fury, annoyance and what-so-ever words related to the word anger.
Are you one of them?
I, personally think it is not professional at all.
Using the caps lock, and doubling-tripling the exclamation marks.
Sometimes, I just wanna reply,
"Hey. It is not you the only one who can do the caps lock. I CAN DO IT TOO."
But, of course, that statement will only come from a hatred emotional heart.
Rasulullah taught us, to not have any vengeful thoughts, for we are taught to forgive those who have been hostile towards us.
We should be shameful, for whatever things we have written during the time when we are angry. Read it back.
Sometimes, when people are mad over something, they can't think straight. Whatever came to their mind, will be only perceptions, and own thoughts.
In fact, perception is never true. What we see with our eyes, is never true, until we confront it. Why did we make such perception and thought, and then, being mad and all without knowing or even asking for the truth?
We'll think we were right, but in fact, we're making ourselves look so pitiful.
Posting our anger on Facebook, will done nothing. Not only we'll hurt those we've mentioned, we've also humiliated them, and in other words, we've shown the world that we've done some stupid act with our ignorance.
What are we? A coward?
Posting our anger to someone on Facebook, WITHOUT confronting with him/her first?
That's a coward to me.
If we are really 'concern' about that particular person, go and meet him/her DIRECTLY on the face.
Ask them why is this and why is that.
Doing the talks behind them will do nothing.
We should change.
It's so easy to judge others, but, it's so hard to judge ourselves.
Any question so far?
Islam has the answer for everything, insyaAllah.
“What Rasulullah said about anger?”
Reported by Abu Hurairah (RA): A man asked the Prophet (peace be upon him) to give him advice, and he (peace be upon him) said, “Do not get angry.” The man repeated that several times and he (peace be upon him) replied (every time), “Do not get angry.”
“But, what if I can’t control my anger?”
Reported by Abu Hurairah (RA): Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) said, “The strong man is not the one who wrestles, but the strong man is, in fact, the one who controls himself in a fit of rage.”
“How to control my anger then?”
Narrated By Abu Dharr: The Apostle of Allah (peace be upon him) 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.
“What‘s in there for me if I am able to control my anger?”
Reported by Mu`adh bin Anas (RA): The Prophet (peace be upon him) said, "The one who suppresses anger and has the power to give effect to it, will be called out by Allah, the Exalted, to the forefront of the creatures on the Day of Resurrection and he will be asked to choose any of the virgins (Hur) of his liking".
[Abu Dawud and At-Tirmidhi]
All of us certainly have the ability to change.
It’s the strong will that’ll start the spark of changing. Let’s 2015 be the year of change, ok? =).
I know all of us can do this.
You just need to practice, and it will insyaAllah become a habit.
