Ethics of Disagreement
My opening remarks during Special Lecture by Dr Zainab al-Alwani, daughter of Syeikh Taha Jabir al-Alwani.
“One of the most dangerous diseases which afflicts the Muslim Ummah until now is the disease of unethical disagreement and discord. This disease has negatively affected and in fact penetrated into morality and behavior including ways of expression and interacting of our Muslim society. Therefore, we must be ready to learn, unlearn, and relearn the art and etiquette of agreeing to disagree. We have no option other than to prepare ourselves with the capability to manage and deal with the disagreement.”
