what is the minimum mass m that will stick and not slip?

i drew 1 free body diagrams of the mass m and mass 2.

For the FBD of m1:

I have normal force, kinetic friction,static friction, the weight components of the mass, and the force of the second mass acting on the first one.

For the FBD of m2:

I have just the force acting on ms from m1, and the weight of m2.

im not quite sure if the block is accelerating kuz it says resting, but then again I am given coefficients of frictional forces. also can i equate the 2 tension forces of the ropes from the third law?

im pretty stumped, I am not sure how to proceed after drawing the FBD's.
