Transcript of The Prophet By Khalil Gibran

The Prophet By Khalil Gibran
A major theme in the book is the theme of God. Almustafa talks about a lot of different things, but often mentions the spiritual side of everything he talks about. I would say the best way to describe the theme would be to say that God is Love.
There isn't really any conflict in the book. The closest thing would be the fact that Almustafa is leaving on a ship to somewhere unknown to the reader.
The fictional Prophet Almustafa spent 12 years of his youth in Orphalese, spending most of his time with the trees and nature outside of the city. The content of the book is basically in the form of spiritual wisdom being passed from Almustafa to the people of Orphalese. At the end he takes off on the ship he had long been waiting for to arrive.

Drawn by the author.
The last sentence in the book is Almustafa bidding a farewell and saying "a little while, a moment of rest upon the wind, and another woman shall bear me." I inferred that this was Almustafa's way of saying that he was a messenger of God.
I can connect to the book because i believe in God.
Its clear that most of Khalil's philosophy portrayed by the character in the book, Almustafa; was religiously inspired.
