…If you are unable to do that, then (at least) do not hate them.

‘Umar ibn Abdil-’Aziz said:

“Become a scholar if you are able. If you are not able, then be a student. If you can not, then show love for them. If you are unable to do that,then (at least) do not hate them.”

[Ibn Abdil-Barr in Jaami’u Bayaanil-‘Ilmi wa Fadhlihi, #143]
