بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

إن الله تعالى يبغض كل جعظري جواظ ، سخاب في الأسواق ، جيفة بالليل ، حمار بالنهار ، عالم بالدنيا ، جاهل بالآخرة

"Verily Allah, the Most High, hates all the rude (rough and arrogant and vain) masses (of people),

(those) who argue (and raise voices) in the market place, (those)

who are corpse by night (i.e. they sleep or indulge in idle pursuits and do not perform night salat etc.),

(those) who are donkey during the day * (i.e. stupid and without understanding, engaged in work and does not pay attention to [fulfilling] the rights of worship),

(those) who are knowledgeable of the dunya (but) ignorant of the akhirah." **

* This is opposite to people in  An-Noor, 37

** This is similar to Ar-Rūm, 7      
يَعۡلَمُونَ ظَـٰهِرً۬ا مِّنَ ٱلۡحَيَوٰةِ ٱلدُّنۡيَا وَهُمۡ عَنِ ٱلۡأَخِرَةِ هُمۡ غَـٰفِلُونَ

There is also a similar shorter version of the above hadeeth, found in 'Jaami' as-Sagheer', 1856 and graded as saheeh by al-Albani:

إن الله تعالى يبغض كل عالم بالدنيا، جاهل بالآخرة

"Verily, Allah the Exalted abhors those who are knowledgeable of the life of this world, but ignorant of the Hereafter."
