In January 2015, I gave my resignation as I got a new job offer. But my employer offered me the same salary and asked me to stay. But there was a catch. They told me that I need to stay for an year at least(verbal contract) and I accepted it. Since then, I just hate my job. I spend nearly 5 to 6 hours a day and I hate every second of it. I don't feel like going to work anymore. And today I got a decent raise. Still, I want to quit, really bad. If I resign, does that verbal contract make me look bad for the future employer ?

At least in the US, unless you or one of your references bring it up, a future employer has no way to know the details of any contracts (verbal or otherwise).
You will certainly be burning some bridges with your current company if you quit now. And others in your current company may think less of you.
It's also possible that you might be asked to pay back some of the increase you received.
But overall, this is very unlikely to make you look bad to future employers.
Can I break verbal contract and resign after getting a raise?
You can always resign and hope for the best.
As far as can you break a contract - that's a question for an attorney.
