“We have very little sense of direction or a vision of where we want to go as a community.  We have to start seeing where we want to be as individuals and as a community.  We should ask ourselves if a lot of the foolishness that we involve ourselves in, such as what I call the ‘Blogistan,’ does this really matter when we stand before Allah (SWT)?  Nothing is stopping us from success as a community except ourselves.”
