ارِعُوٓا۟ لَىٰ مِّن رَّبِّكُمْ ا لسَّمَٰوَٰتُ لْأَرْضُ لِلْمُتَّقِينَ (133) لَّذِينَ لسَّرَّآءِ لضَّرَّآءِ لْكَٰظِمِينَ لْغَيْظَ لْعَافِينَ ٱلنَّاسِ وَٱللَّهُ لْمُحْسِنِينَ (134)

Wa sāri’ū ilā magfiratim mir rabbikum wa jannatin ‘arḍuhas-samāwātu wal-arḍu u’iddat lil-muttaqīn. Allażīna yunfiqụna fis-sarrā`i waḍ-ḍarrā`i wal-kāẓimīnal-gaiẓa wal-‘āfīna ‘anin-nās, wallāhu yuḥibbul-muḥsinīn

Meaning: “And hasten to forgiveness from your Lord and to heaven whose breadth is as wide as the heavens and the earth, which is prepared for those who are pious, (ie) those who spend (of their wealth), both in open and narrow times, and those who those who restrain their anger and forgive (mistakes) people. Allah loves those who do good.”

The Prophet in one hadith also hints that humans should not get angry easily and have a soft heart,

اللَّهُ النَّبِيِّ لى الله ليه لم، ال: “لَيْسَ الشَّدِيدُ الصُّرُعة، لَكِنَّ الشَّدِيدَ الَّذِي لِكُ الْغَضَبِ”.

Meaning: “From Abu Hurairah RA, from the Prophet SAW who said: A strong person is not because he is good at wrestling, but a strong person is someone who can restrain himself when he is angry.” (Narrated by Bukhari and Muslim).

So that you are not easily angry, and have a soft heart, immediately perform ablution and practice a prayer for gentleness of heart. The prayer in question is as follows;

اللَّهُمَّ يَا لَطِيْفُ يَا لَطِيْفُ يَا لَطِيْفُ يَا مَنْ وَسِعَ لُطْفُهُ اَهْلَ السَّمَوَاتِ وَاْلاَرَضِيْنَ اَسْأَلُكَ اَللَّهُمَّ اَنْ تَلْطَفَ بِنَا مِنْ خَفِيِّ خَفِيِّ خَفِيِّ لُطْفِكَ اْلخَفِيِّ اْلخَفِيِّ اْلخَفِيِّ الَّذِيْ اِذَا لَطَفْتَ بِهِ عَلَى اَحَدٍ مِنْ خَلْقِكَ كُفِيَ فَأِنَّكَ قُلْتَ وَقَوْلُكَ اْلحَقُّ اللهُ لَطِيْفٌ بِعِبَادِهِ يَرْزُقُ مَنْ يَشَاءُ وَهُوَ اْلقَوِيُّ اْلعَزِيْزُ

Allahumma yaa lathiifu yaa lathiifu yaa lathiifu yaa man wasi’a luthfuhuu ahlas samaawaati wal arodhiina. As-aluka allohumma an talthofa binaa min khofiyyi khofiyyi khofiyyi luthfikal khofiiyyi al-khofiyyi al-khofiyyi, alladzii idzaa lathofta bihii ‘alaa ahadin min kholqika kufiya, fa innaka ouqul. Allahu lathiifun bi ‘ibaadihii yarzuqu mayyasyaa-u wa huwal qowiiyul ‘aziiz.
