If you say
Astaghfirullah wa atubu ilaih;
Astaghfirullah wa atubu ilaih;
Astaghfirullah wa atubu ilaih;
now and forward it, in a few seconds Millions will have said it
and it may calm Allah's anger.

So ALLAH is angry for the wrong reason and needs calming?
Or He is angry for some reason and needs our worship to calm Him?

Good post spoilt by this silly ending.

 Ghadhab = Opposite of blessing = Bitter consequences of misdeeds = Logical results of defying Divine laws = Physical and mental destitution for defying God = Suffering loss = Incorrectly translated as anger or wrath in relation to God.

For example:

2:90 Awful is the price for which they sell their own ‘selves’. They reject what God has revealed, complaining grudgingly as to why God should bestow His bounty (of revelation) to whomever He may choose among His servants. Thus, (for their bias) they have experienced bitter consequences of their misdeeds again and again. And there is a humiliating suffering for rejecters. [Ghadhab = Opposite of blessing = Bitter consequences = Logical results of defying Divine Laws = Suffering loss = Translated incorrectly as anger or wrath in relation to God. See 1:7, 2:61. Grudgingly: They cannot get over the fact that God has chosen a non-Israelite Prophet. 2:97, 2:100-101, 2:142, 5:48, 7:157]
2:91 When it is said to them, “Believe in what God has revealed”, they say, “We only accept what has been sent to us.” And they reject all besides that, even though it is the Truth confirming what is with them. Say, “Then why did you oppose and even slay the Prophets of God before, if you were believers?” [2:101. For Qatl, see 2:54]
