That is SO TRUE Yosra. When we are angry, we don't control ourselves anymore and then the results are quite bad, we are full of regrets. There are so many other ways to manage, we should definitely think twice. I find it good sometime to ccalm down, breath and reflect on the problem. Most of the time the anger disappear and I can clearly see what next step to take.

Hope you are keeping well dear. Have a blessed day!

Asalamu Alaykom Marie,

Thanks for commenting---not just on this post but on all the other posts.

I totally need to re-read this today. I got mad when Mr. Boo wasn't able to go to the Jummah prayer today. And of course the stockpile of upset came crashing down. I didn't break my fast in anger (I hope) but it's a danger. People mistakenly think that you can only break your fast by eating, drinking or having sex. Actually, it can be if you loose your mind in anger.

Here is more info:

The Prophet (pbuh) said: “If one of you gets angry, let him be quiet.”

In Islam, the raising of voices is a sign of bad character and bad manners. Allah (SWT) says in the Quran: “And be moderate in your pace and lower your voice, for indeed the harshest of sounds is the braying of the donkey.” [Surah Luqman: 16-18]

I thought my graphic was especially...ummm... GRAPHIC. I need visuals like that to remind me.

Alhumdulillah, I'm OK. Fasting. Sweating. Yet, not loosing weight. LOL! Seems vastly unfair but alhumdulillah.

Hope you're doing well too!

Light and Love!

Asalmalaykum Yosra, Here in the UK as the Olympics have coincided with Ramadan a group set up Iftar 2012 where masjids open their doors to Muslims & non Muslims alike to break fast. They also invite Olympians. On 11 August the Egyptian team will be attending Harrow mosque in London! Semolina
