Jamil Elabed, the author of this 8thGolden Copy edition of the translation into Arabic of Khalil Gibran'sThe Prophet, spent twenty years and eight editions refining this work. The Arabic language is his greatest passion. As a graduate of English Language and Literature, his English language skills helped him translate one of the greatest books in history into Gibran's mother tongue, a book that has sold more than one hundred million copies worldwide and has been translated into more than a hundred languages. Jamil revelled in the company of Gibran's visions and thoughts over the years, hence his relentless refinement to bring this Golden Copy to as close to perfection and thorough faithfulness to the original text as he possibly could. This obsession was driven by his primary purpose of providing Arabic readers with the same pleasure that readers of the original English text bask in. This herculean linguistic challenge Jamil undertook changed his life in so many ways. The vagueness of being was no longer as vague; we are no longer more body than spirit; what is here is not all that is there. The Prophet is a long poem that we all crave to sing. A song the translator sang with Gibran, albeit in Arabic this time. The Arabic words and phrases came from the same reservoir and transcendental echoes as their English counterparts; from the same mysterious caves, bearing the same breath and the same rhythm. However, the translator leaned heavily on the grandeur and the inherent vigorousness and tunefulness of the Arabic language that sent its words fluttering like robins in flight, and the phrases streaming like a brook in a melody of image and sound, reflecting those which Gibran saw and heard in his short but enormously bountiful and inspiring life.

Born in the mountains of northern Lebanon, Kahlil Girbran (1883-1931) - mystic, society philosopher, author of one of the most enduring works of the 20th century, The Prophet - immigrated to the United States in 1895. A gifted artist, who specialized in painting for some years before he turned to writing, Gibran - although initially spurned by those whose approval he sought - was in time beloved by a number of prominent avant-gardists and hobnobbed with the rich anbd famous of Henry James's turn-of-the-century Boston. He then set his sights on the bohemian world of Greenwich Village in its early heyday before World War I.Gibran is known for the peace and optimism that permeates his work. Paradoxically, however, his life was littered with personal tragedies, conflicted sexuality, and deep heartache. Robin Waterfield skillfully traces Gibran's development from wounded Romantic and angry young man to his final metamorphosis as the Prophet of New York and shows what influences- psychological, social, and literary - led to these various phases. In fact, the road to the extraordinary success of The Prophet was not smooth or peaceful and tragically, Gibran himself di not live to see the phenomenal sales the book subsequently achieved. A complete reappraisal of all the remaining primary sources on Gibran's life and character, PROPHET is a brilliant work that reveals this Svengali-like guru of the New Age as a deeply unhappy, even tortured man.

Ever since his best-selling book The Prophet was first published in 1923, Kahlil Gibran has been enchanting spiritually inclined readers with his dogma-free writings so rich with insight, wisdom, beauty, and truth. In this companion collection of little-known writings taken from his published works in Arabic, Gibran encourages us to bravely face life's hardships, and to continuously cultivate a rich inner life to set our moral compasses by. In Visions of the Prophet, Gibran's narrator wrestles with the hypocrisies of Christianity ("Mad John," "The Man on the Cross") and challenges hypocrisy ("Kahlil the Ungodly"). He questions how children born of corrupt marriages and living in poverty can ever become soulful creatures ("The Sister Soul," "The Woman of Tomorrow") and urges us to develop our souls ("Solitude and Isolation"). The one-act dramatic play "The Many-Columned City of Iram" shows a Sufi master, a female sage, and a seeker having a heartfelt discussion about the natures of faith and reality. Containing some of his most intellectually challenging work, Visions of the Prophet reveals a Gibran more vehement and vulnerable than in previous publications.
