on the contrary, God said to treat them well, to salute them better their their salute, to discuss matters in good sense, never hurt those who do not hurt you, in fact he made a will and a prophecy
He said, when you conquer Egypt take care of her people (you see that time egypt was not a muslim country, and mainly coptic) and treat the people there well, they are kins to us and relatives
So we don't hate Kuffar, we say, may Allah show them the right way, but the problem is on the contrary, they hate us, like yourself, they do all what it takes to keep the muslims divided, and it is true th Muslims are helping them reach their goals.
The Hindus and Buddists are do not of the people of the scriptures, however we know that the Samiri (The Anti-Christ), during Moses time, who is mentioned in the Holy Quran (God's words), had seduced the Children of Israel (not the Jews) to worship the calf, because of his knowldge of the Hindu rituals.
you can blame yourself only for your misfortune and disbelieve. no one can help you but yourself. the Qadar you talk about is a trial for people either to strengthen their faith in god or otherwise become Kuffar like you. it is your choice,
God gave us minds to use, you can use it for evil or good, you can believe in Him or disbelieve, it is your choice and it is his choice to punish you or not.
If God sees the slightest spot of faith in you he will help you to attain higher degrees of faith, but your have to strive, He does not grant it easily, if He sees tht you are enclinded to evil and disbelieve, he fscilitate the way for you. but its your brains and your choice.
The Holy Quran is a user manual how Humans should operate, use it and find out.
