Holding anger

The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said: "The best of you are those who are slow to anger and swift to cool down...Beware of anger, for it is a live coal on the heart of the descendants of Adam." – (Al-Tirmidhi, Hadith 1331 )

"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." (Al-Tirmidhi Hadith 5114 Narated By Abu Dharr R.A.)

It has been narrated by Abu Huraira (May Allah be pleased with him) That Allah's Messenger Muhammad (P.B.U.H ) Said: “The strong is not the one who over comes the people by his strength. But the strong is the one who controls himself while in anger."

Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else ; you are the one who gets burned !!
