Now that I'm reading The Prophet again, words that I read twenty-seven years ago still ring clearly in my mind as I read them again today. It was a wonderful moment a few evenings ago to find myself reciting aloud and from memory passages that had struck me then--and now--to the very core. Kahlil...

أعتقد أنها ستكون أروع شئ قرأته وسأقرأه عن الأنسانية والحب والعطاء والحكمة
كتاب رائع يستحق الاقتناء وقرائته أكثر من مرة
أبدع ثروت أباظه في ترجمته ويكأنه علي لسان عربي وليس بمترجم
أشد المقطوعات أثارت أعجابي
في المأكل والمشرب
وحين تنحر ذبيحتك ناجها في سريرتك قائلا:"إن الفدرة التي تذبحك هي نفسها... تذ...

ولا تقل في ذاتك : قد وجدت الحق
بل قل بالأحرى : قد وجدت حقا
الحب لا يعطي إلا من نفسه، ولا يأخذ إلا من نفسه
والحب لا يملك، ولا يطيق أن يكون مملوكاً
وحسب الحب أنه حب
إذا الحب أوما إليكم فاتبعوه
حتى وان كانت مسالكه وعرة وكثيرة المزالق
وإذا الحب لفكم بجناحيه فاطمئنوا اليه
حتى وإن جرح...

The Prophet made me feel profoundly spiritual when I was nineteen. It was a great way to experience spirituality and romance as a teenager, but as I got older, its lusty descriptions of the true meaning of love, marriage, and life just seem like pretty, but shallow, wordplay.
Now, don't write to m...

Despite your religious views, be they absent or strong, Gibran has given us a work of beauty that proves, to me at least, that faith is not necessary to be good and right.
A favorite quote from the book:
"Fill each other's cup but drink not from one cup.
Give one another of your bread but eat not fr...

Kahlil Gibran was one of the leading Maronite philosophers of the first half of the twentieth century. Born in Lebanon in 1883, his poetry accompanied by artwork has been translated into over twenty languages. I decided to read his opus The Prophet, which is awe inspiring poetry written in novell...

ليس هناك فرصة أفضل لإعادة كتابة هذه المراجعة من هذه الأيام حيث يثور الجميع من حولي على اكليشيه "خليك زي حماده", و "be like Bill"
فنبي جبران, مثل مدير أحد تلك الصفحات, يقوم بوضع أنماط محددة لحياتنا, عن طريق نصائح مباشرة مبتذلة. ومُقتي لهذا الشكل من النصائح مهما كان محتواها ومهما كان قائلها يفوق مُق...

I don't know if I can write this review. I really don't. It makes me feel extremely vulnerable, to contemplate putting so much of my heart out on view for people on the internet to see. I also don't know if I have the words.
Reading this book was both devastating and awe-inspiring. I was moved bey...

The richness of his poetic prose and its inherent musicality is what I take with me from Al-Mustafá, Gibran’s famous Prophet.
There is also a universal spirituality that doesn’t succumb to the pressure of organized dogma that makes of this short fable a classic that might appeal to any reader reg...

Of course I remember almost nothing of this book, except that it was an arduous journey through the elementary and unspecific explanation of religious doctrine that tries to be open and liberal, but is actually very conservative and full of ideology that I feel is unrewarding mostly due to the di...
