Staff Reviews

My first introduction to Mr Gibran was through the TV show History Detectives. The more they revealed about him the more I wanted to read his works. I fell in love with The Prophet from the minute I read it. Our narrator, Almustafa, speaks of many different aspects of life before he boards a ship headed back to the island he left 12 years ago. So many times reading this book I found that Gibran's words rang true for me. This is a book that I go back to again and again because it gives me peace. Once this book enters your life you wonder how you ever got along without it.

The timeless in you is aware of life's timelessness. And knows that yesterday is but today's memory and tomorrow is today's dream.

A spiritual masterpiece set in prose poetry, The Prophet follows the advice of the prophet Al Mustafa as he gives his insight on the intricacies of life and the human condition. His thoughts comprise those on love, marriage, children, giving, eating and drinking, work, joy and sorrow, houses, 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.

A penetrating work, The Prophet also includes twelve drawings by Gibran himself.
