Rage

Rage, which prevents people from evaluating situations correctly, undermines accurate and fair decision-making, as well as acceptance and compassion. Thus, the Qur'an urges believers not to succumb to it, for doing so only results in misguided behavior and damaged relationships with others. The Qur'an commends those who overcome their anger:

[People who guard against evil are] those who give in times of both ease and hardship, those who control their rage and pardon other people - God loves the good-doers. (Qur'an, 3:134)

The Bible states that rage is evil and that those who are angered by others deserve to be punished: Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice. (Ephesians, 4:31) The Torah expresses similar sentiments: A quick-tempered man does foolish things... (Proverbs, 14:17)
