We have to value the importance of unity, the importance of harmony between the Muslims, we have to understand that we live in a different
sort of environment. As minorities in America, we cannot afford to do this anymore, like the one math mastered, may have people from from all the backgrounds.
And like I said, that is why it is preferred for the public not to subscribe to a particular mazahub That's one of the benefits of the public. Because if you're if you're from Indonesia, for instance, and you traveled to Pakistan, you're going to be stuck, you're not going to be finding a lot of shafa is there to ask
or vice versa, you know,
so So for the public I guess it it is.
It's better not to to subscribe to something that you don't know why are subscribing to it. Because ignorance and z is like mixing
oil and fire.
there are multitudes of examples that we can give and remind people of, So Imam Abu Yusuf, the disciple of Imam Abu Hanifa, prayed behind Haroon Rashid.
After he did hijama or wet cupping, and you know, in their in in the Hanafi madhhab. Harun Rashid did not have Wado.
So he made it made, he did hijama. And then he did not make wudu. And he proceeded to pray, because he asked Malik and Malik advised him that he doesn't need to make wudu Abu use of prayer behind.
So are we as of now is spraying behind someone who in his book does not have Hulu?
So they approached demandable use of afterwards and he said, you know, do you pray behind someone who doesn't have although he said, he said that? Malik gave him a fatwa. So you no matter give him a fatwa, do you want what what do you want me to do?
So that is why the Scholars then started to say, if their prayer is correct for them, it's correct for you. It doesn't have to be correct for you to be correct for you. If the Imams prayer is correct for him, it is correct for you. It's good enough for you. So if someone wipes on the socks, for instance, and that is a homebody possession, you know, even if it drama.
He has a video on YouTube.
advising people that this is a true Hanbury position. This is not a made up position. This is a true humbly wiping on the socks is the authorized position in the Hanbury mother. So
the issue here if someone wipes on the socks, many people would not pray behind them.
Because he doesn't have to do well for Apple use of
this will even worse.
And he prayed that having a receipt, if their prayer is good for them, it's good for you. I'll give you another example that may be even closer to you know, your particular scenario. The other example is when they asked me Melvin and Tamia you know, in the Hanbury
School of Law, just like the magic is in Jafar, he's the way we pray, which is different from the way Hanafis pray with his or her Nafees they have the sit down in the middle.
To us that is basically prohibited because the prophets of salaam said don't like and wait to macro
to hierarchies. They're not like an English with a margarita because the last Raka and Maghreb is silent and they have it the hurry and
you know, in which, so they say no, we're not making it like we say there's no history making it look normal. So interrupt me. I was asked if Hanbury imam prays for a Hanafi crowd. What should he do? You know, now if he prays his way they're going to be upset. If he prays their way he will be praying a prayer that he believes to be prohibited by the prophets also. He said that this prayer is this like it is not haram. It is this like,
Well, what a tough word. You know, Harmony bringing harmony between the Muslims is mandatory and praying like this is disliked and then when there is a conflict, give preference to Harmony
So favor harmony. And he advised this Hanabi Hanbury Imam, to pray the Hanafi way, because that would be more sort of comforting to his crowd to his congregation.
And it was already gracious enough of them to have them for a happy crowd. So he said, Why don't you just sell so compromise?
So that is how things you know. And again at the same time, it depends on your worldview. And it depends on your perspective. It depends on your attitude, and so on. And we can have these discussions all the time. But at the end of the day, if we're really interested in harmony, and if we're interested in Unity, we have these positions, scholarly positions that we can use. We have other scholarly positions that we can use. The choice is ours.
