To the best of my knowledge, there is not a single verse in the Holy Quran where Allah SWT may have expressed His “hate” against someone or some group of people, SubhanAllah. In most cases, the way Allah SWT talked about some group of people was by referring to them as doers of some bad deed, e.g. people who disbelieve, the evil-doers etc.

Now here is the dilemma: How can I (or anyone else ) possibly say that “I hate him/them/her”, when even their Creator never stated such a thing? To hate someone means that you feel intense animosity or dislike for him. Now the logic is very naive: you repeat this opinion against someone for a number of times, and you’ll potentially stop advising him! So, I realized that we are not supposed to have such an attitude against anyone living on the face of earth despite of whatsoever they do. We should not say that we hate xxx, rather, we need to find a more pleasing way to express our opinions.

Anyways, I was used to using this word very frequently, but I stopped Alhamdolillah. It’s very simple to stop and I am dead sure that it results in deep positive effects on our personalities.. Allah knows better!
