A heavy emphasis is placed in Islam on the dangers of the tongue. The Beloved ﷺ warned against heedlessness over speech and guaranteed Paradise to the one who is watchful over their words, which indicates the difficulty of attaining that level of consciousness. Indeed, the most difficult fast during Ramadan is not that of the stomach, but that of the tongue.

Prohibitions of the Tongue is a didactic poem composed by the great Mauritanian sage Sidi Muhammad Maulood. I translated and offered commentary on this work during a weekend intensive with al-Hikam Institute in Brisbane, Australia in September 2018, the audio recordings of which will be released over episodes 72 to 77 in this podcast.

With the increasing number of Muslim women speaking out against what they perceive to be not so much a double standard because that presumes sameness between men and women, but an injustice in terms of what's expected from them compared to Muslim men, we now have men pushing back and crying foul.

What is toxic masculinity? And how does it manifest in marriages and intimacy? How did the social conditioning of men lead to this?

These questions form the points of discussion in this episode dedicated to Muslim men.
