Reading the quran recently selectively and nonselectively it seems that there was an initial bashing and hatred for the so-called unbelievers. Yet Muslims say that he never shed blood or embraced everyone and was peaceful.

Even some passages in the Quran clearly says things concerning Allahs hatred for the unbelievers.

Sin at will, but only if you can fulfill...

A man once came to the great Zahid (ascetic) Sultan Ibraheem ibn Adham (RA) and said, “Shaykh my nafs (ego/self) calls me towards doing bad deeds, so please advise me. (So I may be able to overcome this.)

Sultan Ibrahim said; “If your nafs calls you to this then oblige and there will be no issue for you, but first fulfill these five conditions. The man replied; please inform me of these?

First Condition: If you want to transgress Allah, then find a place wherein He will not be able to see you.

The man replied, “SubhanAllah. How can I hide from him, when nothing is hidden from Him? (69:18)

Sultan Ibrahim said; “SubhanAllah. Are you not ashamed to transgress Allah while he looks upon you?”

Second Condition: If you want to transgress Allah then do not do so on His land.

The man replied; “SubhanAllah. Where can I go when all the land of the universe is His?

Sultan Ibrahim said; “SubhanAllah. Are you not ashamed to transgress Allah while living on his Land?

Third Condition: If you want to transgress Allah, then do not eat from His sustenance.

The man replied; “SubhanAllah. How can I live then, when every bounty is from him?

Sultan Ibrahim said; “SubhanAllah. Are you not ashamed to transgress Allah when He nourishes you and conserves for you your provisions?”

Fourth Condition: If you want to transgress Allah, when the Angels come to take drag you to Hell, do not go along with them.

The man replied; “SubhanAllah. I will not have the strength to do this, rather they will drag me without my choice to Hell. (In reference to 44:47 THQ)

Fifth Condition: If you want to transgress Allah, when your book of deeds is opened for you, deny that the bad deeds belong to you.

The man replied; “SubhanAllah. And where will the Noble Scribes (Angels) and the witnesses that will speak be on that day be? (In reference to verses 82:11 and 24:24 THQ)

Then the man understood the lesson, began to cry profusely, repented to Allah, and continued to live in piety until he died.
