Almustafa, the chosen and the beloved, who was a dawn onto his own day, had waited twelve years in the city of Orphalese for his ship that was to return and bear him back to the isle of his birth. And in the twelfth year, on the seventh day of Ielool, the month of reaping, he climbed the hill without the city walls and looked seaward; and he beheld the ship coming with the mist. Then the gates of his heart were flung open, and his joy flew far over the sea. And he closed his eyes and prayed in the silences of his soul. But as he descended the hill, a sadness came upon him, and he thought in his heart: How shall I go in peace and without sorrow? Nay, not without a wound in the spirit shall I leave this city. Long were the days of pain I have spent within its walls, and long were the nights of aloneness; and who can depart from his pain and his aloneness without regret?

The God separated a spirit from Himself and fashioned it into Beauty. He showered upon her all the blessings of gracefulness and kindness. He gave her the cup of happiness and said, “Drink not from this cup unless you forget the past and the future, for happiness is naught but the moment.­” And He also gave her a cup of sorrow and said, “Drink from this cup and you will understand the meaning of the fleeting instants of the joy of life, for sorrow ever abounds.­” And the God bestowed upon her a love that would desert he forever upon her first sigh of earthly satisfaction, and a sweetness that would vanish with her first awareness of flattery. And He gave her wisdom from heaven to lead to the all-­righteous path, and placed in the depth of her heart and eye that sees the unseen, and created in he an affection and goodness toward all things. He dressed her with raiment of hopes spun by the angels of heaven from the sinews of the rainbow. And He cloaked her in the shadow of confusion, . . .

"Il profeta Almustafa è vissuto nella città di Orfaslese in solitudine e meditazione per diversi anni.
Quando arriva la nave che dovrà riportarlo in patria, tutta la gente della città gli si stringe attorno, e prima dell’addio, lui risponde alle domande che le persone gli pongono, offrendo loro una visione della vita fondata sull’accettazione del sé e sulla tolleranza universale.
Il lavoro, il matrimonio, l’amore, i figli, il dare e il ricevere, la bellezza, la casa, l’amicizia, il delitto e il castigo, sono alcuni dei temi ai quali il Maestro risponde al popolo di Orfalese, e a tutti coloro che sapranno accogliere il suo pensiero imperniato di spiritualità.
Sono davvero suggestive le atmosfere dell’ Ebook del più celebre romanzo di Khalil Gibran, ricco sfumature rarefatte, affascinanti e di ampio respiro; certamente hanno contribuito al successo di quest’opera che è tra le più amate al mondo.
Il Profeta è disponibile anche in versione Audiobook. Khalil Gibran è nato il 6 . . .

Халиль Джебран (1883-­1931) – известный писатель и философ – родился в Ливане, но впоследствии оказался в эмиграции в США. Его первые поэтические и прозаические сборники написаны на арабском языке, однако затем он писал и издавался на английском. Наибольшую популярность у читателей завоевало произведение «Пророк» (1923), органично соединившее философские идеи Запала и Востока с поэтической стихией книг Ветхого Завета и традиционной суфийской символикой.
Авторские сборники и отдельные произведения Халиля Джебрана неоднократно публиковались в СССР. Настоящее издание осуществлено за счет средств переводчика и под его редакцией.
Переводчик благодарит Мурманское научно-­реализационное объединение «Айсберг», члена-­корреспондента АН СССР Андрея Петровича Капицу и директора совхоза Федора Михайловича Ковалева за финансовую помощь при издании этой книги.
