It has been an inspiration to many with passages from the book being recited often at weddings marriages and funerals
The Prophet comprises 26 poetic essays. It tells the story of the prophet Al-Mustafa who just before his sad departure from the city of Orphalese and his return to his original homeland is asked to speak his wisdom to the populace bemoaning his departure. The Prophet’s text narrates his direct response to a series of questions posed to him on subjects such as Love Death Beauty Freedom Self-Knowledge Joy and Sorrow Work Marriage Children Crime and Punishment etc.. Its exquisite poetic imagery and profound wisdom still inspires to this day and will continue to do so for generations to come.
