The Messenger of Allah said:

"Whoever curses (or verbally abuses) Ali, he has, in fact, cursed me, and whoever has cursed me, he has cursed Allah, and whoever has cursed Allah, then Allah will throw him into he Hell-fire."

Musnad Ahmad Ibn Hanbal, v6, p33

Rasulullah (s) said:

"Whoever leaves Ali, leaves me, whoever leaves me, leaves Allah" [Kanz ul Ummal, hadith numbers 32974

- 32976, narrated by Abdullah ibne Umar {through two chains} and Abu Dharr Ghaffari (ra).

As we have already cited earlier, Rasulullah (s) also said:

"Whoever obeys 'Ali, obeys me, whoever obeys me, obeys Allah, whoever disobeys 'Ali, disobeys me, whoever disobeys me, disobeys Allah" [Kanz ul Ummal, hadith numbers 32973]

So these hadith tell us:

1. The sign of a Munafiq is hatred of Ali (as)
2. Whoever leaves, disobeys and curses 'Ali - in fact leaves, disobeys and curses Allah (swt)

Now we would like to ask this writer:

1. Did Mu'awiya curse 'Ali?
2. Is an individual who leaves, disobeys and curses Allah (swt) a Muslim?

This being the case, could the author of this 'masterpiece' kindly explain why it is that he (and his Ahl'ul Sunnah brethren) insist on giving Mu'awiya the title (ra)? Is Allah (swt) pleased with someone that curses him?
