Duas to control anger

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Tafseer Raheemi

Question: How do you control anger?

Answer: To control anger one should pray Ta’awuz as reported in the Hadeeth of Tirmithi:
قال النبي صلى الله عليه و سلم إني لأعلم كلمة لو قالها لذهب غضبه ‘أعوذ بالله من الشيطان الرجيم

If one is standing then he/she should sit down and if the anger doesn’t go away, then they should lie down like in the Hadeeth of Abu Dawud Shareef:
إن رسول الله صلى الله عليه و سلم قال إذا غضب أحدكم و هو قائم فليجلس فإن ذهب عنه الغضب و إلا فليضطجع

One could also perform Wudhu, as this also takes away anger like in the Hadeeth of Abu Dawud Shareef:
قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه و سلم إن الغضب من الشيطان و إن الشيطان خلق من النار و إنما تطفأ النار بالماء فإذا غضب أحدكم فليتوضأ

One should think that Allah has more power over me than what I have over him/her, what if Allah gets His anger out on me.

And Allah SWT knows best
