Bi ismillahi al rahman al rahim

RUMI: "The protection against God's anger"

Mawlana Jalal al-Din al-Rumi (Allah be pleased with him) said:



A sober-minded man said to Jesus,

"What in this existence is hardest to bear?"

"O dear soul," he replied, "the hardest is God's anger,

from which Hell is trembling as we are."

"And what is the protection against God's anger?"

Said Jesus, "To abandon your own anger at once."
Rasul Allah (sallah llahu alaihi wa sallam) said: "Whoever knows himself, knows his Lord" and whoever knows his Lord has been given His gnosis and nearness.

Bro rami, can post the reference from where Mawlana Jalal al-Din al-Rumi must have got this narration between Prophet Jesus and a "sober minded man"? Admittedly, I don't find it in Quran nor any hadith (atleast not to my limited knowledge). I shall appreciate it. Cheers!

Rumi was a Muslim and a Sufi poet who lived in the 13th century just
after Al-Gazzali. Sufis saved many stories attributed to Jesus that do not
appear in Christian scripture. There is also a common belief that the
undocumented years of Jesus' early adulthood were likely spent as a Sufi
dervish.

If you read Rumi in English, try to find the Barks translation.
