Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us that whoever builds a mosque for Allah, Allah will build for him a similar house in Jannah. And we know the great reward that will not only be gained but rather will fill your grave after your death. Whenever someone prays that whenever someone gives shahada in the masjid whenever someone learns something in the masjid, yes, that will be something that you will have on your scale.

00:00:34--> 00:01:09

Salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah hear what cat so how you guys doing? I was recently sent a video from a good friend of mine, of this guy called Constantine relating a discussion, a conversation that he had with Ben Shapiro, let's take a look at the key points of contention and come back and respond in kind. And so to me, masculinity isn't about having big muscles or having a big head or wide fists or whatever. If we think about our conversation earlier about power, like I remember talking to Ben Shapiro about this. And he was like, yeah, there's this guy on the internet, who's like, you could do a critique of God big muscle, and you're like, Yeah, I could pay people to shoot, you know, I'll

00:01:09--> 00:01:16

be honest with you, for more than one reason, I found the contents of this video quite disturbing.

00:01:17--> 00:02:00

Now, whether or not this, Ben Shapiro was talking about me, the muscular guy, I think the people can make that judgment themselves, whether the muscular guy is the champ, or whether it's not the gym. But that's something you can discuss later. But the content of the video where he was saying, Well, I can get someone to shoot him. I've got a question for you, Ben, if you're talking about whether or not you're talking about as irrelevant and immaterial, here's my question for you. What would make you any different from my wife or my child, my daughter, for example, if your only consequence as a man is to pay another man to deal with your work, if that's your consequences, a man that what makes

00:02:00--> 00:02:01

you different from my wife and my daughter,

00:02:02--> 00:02:43

I'm actually different. Because that's the same consequence My wife has, or my daughter has my 10 year old daughter, she has the same consequences. As you do, she'd come to me and and say that this person has abused me this person has done this and that I will defend. So what you're actually admitting here there is that you don't have any consequence of your own. You are docile man, with limited consequences. That's the truth of the matter. And what's ironic with this situation, bro, as well, they didn't tell you this. But what's ironic with the situation, is the fact that this guy was speaking for about three minutes prior about masculinity. And he and Constantine was talking for

00:02:43--> 00:02:52

about three minutes I couldn't get I've heard this before, what he was saying is talking about the chimps and all these kinds of things, things that you've heard from Jordan Peterson, effectively a copy and paste of Jordan Peterson's,

00:02:53--> 00:02:57

you know, discussion on the matter about print Jimson this and whatever.

00:02:58--> 00:03:03

And for some reason or another, he brought Ben Shapiro into a discussion. I don't know.

00:03:06--> 00:03:23

Let's, let's be fair, let's be fair. Now. You talk about paid being paid? Are you being paid to talk about Ben Shapiro, in the context of masculine because I know for a fact he's trying to appear like a man. Now I've done a rap video recently. He's trying to be he's trying to appear like a man.

00:03:24--> 00:03:26

He's trying to maybe he's

00:03:28--> 00:03:41

doing well, but really intruding on an academic on an academic level. Let's speak, frankly, and what is masculinity? Because obviously, we come from different, okay, traditions. But according to both of our traditions, there's actually a very similar

00:03:43--> 00:04:26

definition. A very similar kind of like, theme if you like, because if you look at, if you like the Western tradition, and obviously the Western Church is not one monolith. But if you look at, for example, the classical period, the holistic period, the pre Socratic period, Plato, Aristotle, Nicomachean, ethics, Plato's Republic, all these kinds of things, it would seem to me that the main thing that makes a man differentiates a man distinguishes a man from his female counterpart, what really makes a man is bravery. That is the key virtue, the key differentiating virtue, that's not to say that woman cannot be brave, it just means that men need to have this virtue in more abundance

00:04:26--> 00:04:35

that a woman does, so that they can enact the things that they need to enact as warriors as providers as protectors. Now, this was understood, in fact, the Greek word,

00:04:36--> 00:04:59

Andrea, so effectively, masculinity is the same word for bravery. And the same thing is applicable in the Islamic tradition, because in the Islamic tradition, the Prophet told us shuffle methodologically blueclone Hell I would call out that the worst thing in a man is for him to be stingy, and for him to be a coward. So bravery clearly is the is the

00:05:00--> 00:05:08

main virtue, which makes a man a man. Now, I want you to ask you a question or anybody else a question. What do you think?

00:05:09--> 00:05:35

What evidence do we have that Ben Shapiro has manifested any level of bravery in his life, the most brave thing he's ever done is challenged college students. And that's not brave at all, because they're not his, they're not equals to him, the debates he's had with people that were effectively sympathetic to a lot of his worldview, so he has not manifested that he should not be in these conversations.

00:05:37--> 00:05:46

And in fact, recently, his friend Lex Friedman, has put a list of major names, including my own, of course, of the pro Palestinian side.

00:05:47--> 00:06:11

But I would have to say more senior names, people like Norman Finkelstein, people like Abdullah Andalusi, who are on that list. And he has a choice of all these people, all of which have called him out for debate on the Palestine issue, one of his main bread and butter issues. And if you look at that list of the main names that Lex Friedman, without consultation, and other people have recommended to him,

00:06:13--> 00:06:26

you will realize that Ben Shapiro has never, ever debated those people on that issue. Now, is that really a display of bravery? And availa?

00:06:28--> 00:06:58

I don't think so. I don't think so at all. So, he is a coward. And I think there's good evidence for that. The fact that this man is a coward, and I'm speaking now honest, on a genuine level, I think he's a coward. I think in fact, Jordan Peterson, with all of the disagreements that we have with him, showed more fortitude, yes, than he did in the fact that he at least converse with me. As discussion he came face to face, you gotta give him some level credit, at least is sort of what I mean. We just completely agree with that. But

00:06:59--> 00:07:01

Ben Shapiro couldn't muster that,

00:07:02--> 00:07:13

let alone to go to someone like Norman Finkelstein, who for 40 years has been searching, researching this topic and would shred this man to pieces intellectually.

00:07:14--> 00:07:19

More of I would like to say that why on earth would you even mention

00:07:20--> 00:07:29

why on some on Earth with someone like you even mentioned shooting this person that the US onshore Zionist counterparts doing enough of that anyway, to the children?

00:07:31--> 00:07:54

Shooting the children had I said, I can pay somebody else to shoot and that would be front page news, but that's another story for another day. Suffice it for me to say now, for suffice it for me to say that unfortunately, the Zionist project, and its proponents have shown the most cowardice I've seen from anybody ever before.

00:07:55--> 00:08:27

And you as a proponent of that are no different Ben Shapiro, was Salam Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh Hey, you are you wasting your time on social media again, your brothers and sisters in Islam net from Norway are establishing a masjid a Dawa center. Establishing a masjid to convey the message of Islam is one of the best deeds a Muslim can do. There's a huge need for annoying you know this and I know this, so that makes the room even greater. So give generously and Allah azza wa jal give you even more
