A lot of people on the Dallas scene need to realize that they're on the same team. A lot of times there are disagreements that happen that are not fundamental disagreements, their disagreements and tactics basically right. But sometimes we blow them up or interpret them to the level where are we are we treat them as if they're disagreements at a very, very fundamental level. And they're not. Right, if you have somebody who is spreading to feet, right to hate is the essence of a slab. Okay? We worship Allah. We don't worship anything else in the various forms that that takes, we believe that the prophet is set up. So that was the last messenger. We believe in the Koran. We believe in

00:00:38 --> 00:01:17

the Sunnah. We believe in the things that are known by necessity from the religion, right, we're praying hijab and you know, a cat and Hajj and all these sorts of things. Okay, if those are all points of agreement between us, you gotta leave some room for for, for different for differences of opinion on how to deal with stuff, right, you're not going to be the same person, somebody's going to have a different idea of maybe priority, or what comes first, some people are going to have a different idea of tactics and strategy. And some people might even be wrong when it comes to tactics and strategy or what comes first. But we can't we need to differentiate between issues. We can't

00:01:17 --> 00:01:42

treat somebody who differs with yourself or differs with you, or the people that you kind of associated with, they differ with you on tactics and strategy, or, or you know, sequence what comes first and what comes later. And you're treating them like they disagree with you about the Quran and Sunnah or you treat them, like they're disagreeing with you about things that are known by necessity in Islam, right, we need to have some sort of

00:01:43 --> 00:02:10

some sort of differentiation about levels here. You know, when it comes to people who are disagreements are just on the level of strategy and tactics and what comes first and what comes later, then we should be, you know, we should we don't have to point out every single thing, do we really expect people to be exactly like us, we really expect people to assess a situation, especially a Dallas situation exactly in the way that we are. And we're gonna then drag somebody's name through the mud, or we're going to, you know,

00:02:11 --> 00:02:48

say this, and that we're not going to cooperate with people and stuff like that come on, like we we need to be on the same team. Right, you need to take the people of the tabular, the people of the Sunnah, that people who care about normative Islam, even if you disagree, disagree with 40% of what they say, then work on the 60% that you agree with, or support them on the 60% that they agree with, that you agree with them, or, you know, team up on what you agree with them, and leave, leave some actual space to disagree, right, and understand that that's inevitably going to happen. And there's also certain things that need to be behind closed doors versus in front of other people, right? If

00:02:48 --> 00:03:24

we take every single disagreement that we have with somebody else, again, we're talking about these disagreements, priorities, tactics, strategies, not the not the basics, we're talking about the finer points, and we're gonna go, you know, try people on the court of public opinion, we're gonna go take it to social media, we're going to put it out on blast in front of everybody, it doesn't look good. First of all, it makes it harder for other people to accept the truth, even if you're right, second of all, and it just makes us look divided. Because that's what we are, at this point, we're divided. And we've got some big fish to fry, when it comes to this moment, this historical

00:03:24 --> 00:04:05

moment that we're actually in we've got a certain ideological agendas being pushed in the schools, we've got a there's not a recognized holiday in most school districts and places across the country. You know, we've got very, very poor Islamic education, like, generally speaking, going on from community to community, there's so much room to work together and to build up resources, our machines are funded horribly, right? That, you know, even just getting messages within one city to cooperate, you know, the inner city messages versus the suburban messages and like Anza cat and like trying to make the cat flow to where it really needs to go. There's so much room to work together,

00:04:06 --> 00:04:15

and so much stuff that we have to develop. And right now, we're definitely on the opposite of extreme where we're not working with with

00:04:17 --> 00:04:25

we're not working with people on points that we really should be working with them on and we need to we need to fix it up if we're going to progress as a community
