FROM THE AUTHOR
If Gibran had written Annabi in Arabic, this is it. As I translated this work, Gibran was in my soul, in my heart, and at my fingertips. I am both humbled and honoured to have been the translator; for me that is sufficient, for the words, the sentiments, the language and its cadences are all those of Gibran.
Kahlil Gibran (1887-1931) was a Lebanese/American poet, writer and artist. His work has been translated into more than twenty languages, and his drawings and paintings have been exhibited worldwide.
