al-Bughdhu Fillah - Hatred for Allah's sake
You must hate for Allah's sake exclusively. The Prophet (saw) said,
“The strongest knot of Imaan is al-Hubbu Fillah (To love only for the sake of Allah) and al-Bughdu Fillah (To hate for the sake of Allah).” Saheeh al-Bukhari and Saheeh al-Muslim
A sign of your hatred being only for Allah’s sake is that it does not increase if someone upsets you or was rude to you, and does not decrease if they treated you well and were polite to you; rather it only increases or decreases according to their sin, disbelief, disobedience and distance from Allah.
