The Prophet Muhammed (pbuh) stated 'He who amongst you sees something abominable should modify it with the help of his hand; and if he has not strength enough to do that, then he should do it with his tongue; and if he has not strength enough to do even that, then he should (at least dislike it) from his heart; and that is the least of faith' [Sahih Muslim]
