It's preposterous

He was a sufi poet


Khalil Gibran (full name Gibran Khalil Gibran bin Mikhael bin Saâd, Arabic: جبران خليل جبران بن ميخائيل بن سعد, Syriac: ÜŸÝ‚Ü ÜÜ Ü”Ü’ÜªÜ¢) (born January 6, 1883 in Bsharri, Lebanon; died April 10, 1931 in New York City, United States) was a Lebanese American artist, poet, writer, philosopher and theologian. He was born in Lebanon (at the time the Mount Lebanon Province of the Ottoman Empire) and spent most of his life in the United States. He is the third bestselling poet in history after William Shakespeare and Lao Tse.
Gibran was born in the Christian Maronite town of Bsharri in today’s northern Lebanon – at the time, part of the Ottoman Empire. He grew up in the region of Bsharri. His maternal grandfather was a Maronite Catholic priest[2]. His mother Kamila was thirty when Gibran was born; his father, also named Khalil, was her third husband.[3] As a result of his family’s poverty, Gibran did not receive any formal schooling during his youth in Lebanon. However, priests visited him regularly and taught him about the Bible, as well as the Syriac and Arabic languages.
After Gibran’s father, a tax collector, went to prison for alleged embezzlement,[1] Ottoman authorities confiscated his family’s property. Authorities released Gibran’s father in 1894, but the family had by then lost their home. Gibran’s mother decided to follow her brother, Gibran’s uncle, and emigrated to the United States. Gibran’s father remained in Lebanon. Gibran’s mother, along with Khalil, his younger sisters Mariana and Sultana, and his half-brother Peter left for New York on June 25, 1895

Before reading this question and the answers, I really could not have told you anything, Now I am a little richer in my knowledge. so I must thank you and those who have provide answers.
BTW I note the you have added me, so I am just seeing how you mind works, please forgive my curiosity.


The love poet for the Hippie generation. College guys learned that discussing Gibran with a date increased our chances of getting lucky with women. Later on in life, we would learn to use Johnnie Mathis records for the same reason.

i read the book”the prophet” many years ago. i seemed so weird. i was not into it.


It is a favorite of mine. Sometimes works when they are translated to another language lose some of their luster, but this is not the case with Gibran’s work and definitely not with “The Prophet”. My favorite chapters are “On Love”, “On Joy and Sorrow” and “On Giving”. A wonderful work.
