Dua when angry in english and how to control angry

Hallo my Muslim friend, on this occasion we will share a dua that must be read when angry, therefore see this article until it runs out.

Knowing the Nature of Anger

Anger is a human nature that cannot be separated from every human being. It is impossible for a human being to never be angry at all. We’re sure you must have been angry too.

But as a good Muslim, you should be able to control this anger. Do not let it out when anger is not controlled, which consequently can endanger you or those around you. This is usually the regret that will come, regret in the heart because of a momentary anger that causes consequences.

Aside from that anger is a misleading incitement of satan, therefore when you are angry immediately remember God by reading the following dua:
