At various occasions, Islam has taught us not use obscene words even for nonbelievers. Islam does not allow any Muslim to taunt another person. Because when you are taunting, abusing or humiliating someone, you are actually performing an evil act. Such an act is loved and supported by the Satan. Islam has even forbidden cursing a sinner. A sinner may become a pious person at some point because of your guidance kindness. But he may get far away from you and Islam if you are abusing and cursing him.
