This concept comes from a weak chained Hadith: إِنَّ الْغَضَبَ مِنْ الشَّيْطَانِ وَإِنَّ الشَّيْطَانَ خُلِقَ مِنْ النَّارِ وَإِنَّمَا تُطْفَأُ النَّارُ بِالْمَاءِ فَإِذَا غَضِبَ أَحَدُكُمْ فَلْيَتَوَضَّأْ Anger is from Shaytan and Shaytan is made from fire.

This implies that you as the instigator could ...

At the first place, there is no hitting each other in anger in Islam. Everyone is supposed to be patient and forgive each others' deeds. Hitting is not the solution. Although, this is a bit out of context, but I thought could be helpful, And if you fear dissension between the two, send an arbitrator from his people and an arbitrator from her people. If ...

Our philosophies for what God should or should not be are irrelevant. God does get angry it says so in Qur'an: غَيْرِ الْمَغْضُوبِ عَلَيْهِمْ - not of those who have evoked Your anger وَغَضِبَ اللَّـهُ عَلَيْهِ - Allah has become angry with him His anger like all His other attributes is not like human anger. لَيْسَ كَمِثْلِهِ شَيْءٌ - There is nothing ...

Yes you are :) Not all sins are blasphemy. By cussing, you've committed a sin (and seems like you regret your actions so make tawbah/repent) but you have not rejected the deen so you're fine, sister :) My suggestion would be to find a better way to release your anger.

There are ahadith which describe the importance of controlling anger: Abu Huraira reported: I heard Allah's Messenger (ﷺ) as saying: One is not strong because of one's wrestling skillfully. They said: Allah's Messenger, then who is strong? He said: He who controls his anger when he is in a fit of rage. -- Sahih Muslim 2609 b (sunnah.com; also Al-Adab Al-...

These are all common problems almost everyone goes through.

With respect to your question that you inquired if this immediately makes him a non-Muslim or not, so, as a rule, (as far as I know) it doesn’t need to pass the time to become non-Muslim, actually whoever confesses that he is not a Muslim anymore, then we ought to consider him as a non-Muslim. With respect to your second question that you inquired if so, ...

Actually that happens to me too, and happens in many many families as well. You just have to have faith in yourself that people all around us try to insult us, ridicule us, make fun of us in many ways, but you should just remember that you are better than them that you don't do this to others. Just take example of our Prophet Muhammad. A woman used to put ...
