I rather hate his deeds…
It is reported that once Abu Ad- Darda passed by a sinful person while people were reviling him. He told them,
Finding him fallen in a well, would you not take him out?
They replied in the affirmative. Whereupon, he remarked,
Do not revile your brother.
They asked him,
Do you not hate him?
I rather hate his deed. If he gives it up, he will be my brother.
