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?

He replied,

I rather hate his deed. If he gives it up, he will be my brother.

[Mukhtasar Minhaj al Qasidin]
