The Prophet by Khalil Gibran

Blurb

Kahlil Gibran’s masterpiece, The Prophet, is one of the most beloved classics of our time. Published in 1923, it has been translated into more than twenty languages, and the American editions alone have sold more than nine million copies.

The Prophet is a collection of poetic essays that are philosophical, spiritual, and, above all, inspirational. Gibran’s musings are divided into twenty-eight chapters covering such sprawling topics as love, marriage, children, giving, eating and drinking, work, joy and sorrow, housing, clothes, buying and selling, crime and punishment, laws, freedom, reason and passion, pain, self-knowledge, teaching, friendship, talking, time, good and evil, prayer, pleasure, beauty, religion, and death.

My views

A very spiritually insipring book, with lots of knowlegde about Life, work, family.

With twenty-eight poetry fables, Khalil Gibran has beautifully described the life of Al- Mustapha.

From Mustapha boarding the ship to his farewell, each page of the book has a sense of calm and wisdom.

Their are chapters on love, marriage, children, eating, work, joy, housing, clothes buying, crime, law, freedom, passion, pain self-knowledge, teaching,friendship, talking, time, good and evil, prayer, pleasure, beauty, religion, death and farewell.
