Question

I am a 24 year Muslim boy from a Ahl Hadith family since my child hood I have worshiped Allah (SWT) alone. I have not associated any partners with Allah (SWT). My question is: Why are Muslims the hatred community in the world?

Answer

Praise be to Allah, the Lord of the World; and may His blessings and peace be upon our Prophet Muhammad and upon all his Family and Companions.

We ask Allah to make you and us steadfast on His religion. As for hatred of Kuffars to Muslims, it is the rule of Allah Who has made enemies of truth and supporters of falsehood in order to examine those who are on truth from those who are not so till the Day of Judgment. Allah Says (interpretation of meaning): {…that Allâh may test who it is that will help Him (His religion), and His Messengers in the unseen. …} [57:25].
Therefore, falsifiers such as Jews, Christians and polytheists bear grudge and hatred against Muslims being jealous of the truth the Muslims have. So, they try their best to turn Muslims back from their religion. Allah Says (interpretation of meaning): {Neither those who disbelieve among the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians) nor Al-Mushrikûn (the disbelievers in the Oneness of Allâh, idolaters, polytheists, pagans, etc.) like that there should be sent down unto you any good from your Lord. …} [2:105]. Allah also Says (interpretation of meaning): {…then when there came to them that which they had recognised, they disbelieved in it. So let the Curse of Allâh be on the disbelievers. How bad is that for which they have sold their own selves, that they should disbelieve in that which Allâh has revealed (the Qur'ân), grudging that Allâh should reveal of His Grace unto whom He will of His slaves. …} [2:89-90].
There is another verse that reads: {…And they will never cease fighting you until they turn you back from your religion (Islâmic Monotheism) if they can. …} [2:217].
The hatred of Kuffars varies based on the adherence of Muslims to their religion. The more the Muslims follow the religion the more they hate them as confirmed by the verse: {They intend to put out the Light of Allâh (i.e. the religion of Islâm, this Qur'ân, and Prophet Muhammad SAW) with their mouths. But Allâh will complete His Light even though the disbelievers hate (it).} [61:8].
Allah knows best.
