Do Not Hate...
"Do not hate the sinners, only their sins. Do not aid Satan in his task by damning the sinners. Instead, help them fight Satan by praying that they be guided to the Straight Path and obtain their deliverance. Be watchful for your own sins, keep reciting the Quranic verse: 'Do you not love that Allah should forgive you?' [24:22] and try to understand the meaning of the verse: 'And the human has been created weak' [4:28]. Realize that everyone's life is full of both good and evil and that every group is composed of both the good and the bad. This realisation will make it easier for you to deal with the sinners around you in the manner that Allah and His Prophet, blessings and peace be upon him, have desired.
"When it comes to shortcomings and sins, give others a greater allowance than you would give yourselves. Consider others more worthy of being pardoned than you. Be less harsh to others than you are on your own self. Be less demanding of others than you are of yourself. If Allah wills, you shall find much good in such conduct."
