Loving and hating in extreme

Below was translated by brother Bassam Zawadi:

Shaykh al-Islam ibn Taymiyyah in al-Majmu’ said:

وكثير من الناس إذا علم من الرجل ما يحبه؛ أحب الرجل مطلقًا، وأعرض عن سيئاته، وإذا علم منه ما يبغضه؛ أبغضه مطلقا، وأعرض عن حسناته، وهذا من أقوال أهل البدع والخوارج والمعتزلة والمرجئة…

“There are many people whom if they knew something about a person which they liked, they would like him unconditionally and ignore his sins. Similarly, if they knew something about him which they hated, they would hate him unconditionally and ignore his good deeds. This is from the opinions of the people of innovation and Khawaarij and Mu’tazilites and Murji’ah…”
