Be Just, Even if You Hate Him

The shaikh, Dr. Muḥammad ibn Ghālib Al-ʿUmarī, may Allāh protect him, said:

Don’t let your hatred for a person stop you from being just with him, [from your being] balanced and fair in your judgments upon him.

And watch out that you don’t block him from [getting any] right of his, or [that] you take steps to cause him harm, as a means of getting release for what’s in your soul; that’s reprehensible. And more reprehensible than that would be your dressing up your nasty dealings in religious clothing and [a pretense of] jealous protectiveness over Islamic law.

You would then have fallen into acts of oppression, and how could you possibly get yourself out of that other than through true, correct repentance?
