Khalil Gibran (also known as Kahlil Gibran; born Gibran Khalil Gibran, Arabic: جبران خليل جبران, Syriac: ܓ̰ܒܪܢ ܚܠܝܠ ܓ̰ܒܪܢ) (January 6, 1883 – April 10, 1931) was an artist, poet and writer. He was born in Lebanon and spent much of his productive life in the United States.

[edit] Youth in Lebanon
According to his relative of the same name, the Gibran family's origins are obscure. Though his mother was the "offspring of a priestly, and important family", the Gibran clan was "small and undistinguished." He was born in the Maronite town of Bsharri in today's northern Lebanon - at the time, part of the Ottoman Empire -, and grew up in the region of Bsharri. His maternal grandfather was a Maronite Catholic priest.

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. During these early days, Gibran began developing ideas that would later form some of his major works. In particular, he conceived of The Prophet at this time.

After Gibran's father went to prison for fraud and tax evasion, 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, Kamilah, decided to follow Gibran's uncle and emigrate to the United States. Gibran's father chose to remain in Lebanon. Gibran's mother, along with Khalil, his younger sisters Mariana and Sultana, and his half-brother Peter (a.k.a. Butros) left for New York on June 25, 1895.


[edit] Youth in America

Khalil Gibran, Photograph by Fred Holland Day, c. 1898At the time the second largest Lebanese-American community was in Boston's South End, so the Gibrans decided to settle there. His mother began working as a peddler to bring in money for the family, and Gibran started school on September 30, 1895. Since he had had no formal schooling in Lebanon, school officials placed him in a special class for immigrants to learn English. Gibran's English teacher suggested that he Anglicise the spelling of his name in order to make it more acceptable to American society. Kahlil Gibran was the result.

In his early teens, the artistry of Gibran's drawings caught the eye of his teachers and he was introduced to the avant-garde Boston artist, photographer, and publisher Fred Holland Day, who encouraged and supported Gibran in his creative endeavors.


[edit] Art and poetry
A publisher used some of Gibran's drawings for book covers in 1898, and Gibran held his first art exhibition in 1904 in Boston. During this exhibition, Gibran met Mary Elizabeth Haskell, a respected headmistress ten years his senior. The two formed an important friendship that lasted the rest of Gibran's life. Haskell influenced not only Gibran's personal life, but also his career. In 1908, Gibran went to study art with Auguste Rodin in Paris for two years. This is where he met his art study partner and lifelong friend Youssef Howayek. He later studied art in Boston.

While most of Gibran's early writings were in Syriac and Arabic, most of his work published after 1918 was in English. Gibran also took part in the New York Pen League, also known as the "immigrant poets", alongside other important Lebanese American authors such as Ameen Rihani ("the father of Lebanese American literature"), Mikhael Naimy and Elia Abu Madi.

Much of Gibran's writings deal with Christianity, mostly condemning the corrupt practices of the Eastern churches and their clergies during that era. His poetry is notable for its use of formal language, as well as insights on topics of life using spiritual terms.

Gibran's best-known work is The Prophet, a book composed of 26 poetic essays. During the 1960s, The Prophet became especially popular with the American counterculture and New Age movements. The Prophet remains famous to this day as the most widely sold book in history (surpassed only by the bible), and having been translated into more than 20 languages.

One of his most famous lines of poetry in the English speaking world is from 'Sand and Foam' (1926), which reads : 'Half of what I say is meaningless, but I say it so that the other half may reach you'. This was taken by John Lennon and placed, though in a slightly altered form, into the song Julia from The Beatles' 1968 album The Beatles (a.k.a. The White Album).

Gibran's most famous line of all is that which inspired John F. Kennedy's often quoted "Ask Not What Your Country Can Do For You," from his 1961 inaugural address. The quote was inspired by a 1925 article, "The New Frontier," in which Gibran wrote: "Are you a politician asking what your country can do for you or a zealous one asking what you can do for your country? If you are the first, then you are a parasite; if the second, then you are an oasis in a desert."[citation needed]

Juliet Thompson, one of Khalil Gibran's acquaintances, said that Gibran told her that he thought of `Abdu'l-Bahá, the divine leader of the Bahá'í Faith in his lifetime, all the way through writing The Prophet. `Abdu'l-Bahá's personage also influenced Jesus, The Son of Man, another book by Gibran. It is certain that Gibran did two portraits of him during this period.[1]


[edit] Death and legacy

Before his death, Gibran expressed the wish that he be buried in Lebanon. This wish was fulfilled in 1932, when Mary Haskell and his sister Mariana purchased the Mar Sarkis Monastery in Lebanon. Gibran remains the most popular Lebanese-American writer ever.

[edit] Trivia
Khalil Gibran is referenced briefly in the episode Wingmen of the show The Boondocks. When Huey (the central character) is asked by his grandfather to say something "deep", he recites part of the poem "On Pain" from The Prophet.
The Prophet is seen in the Johnny Cash biopic Walk the Line when June Carter hands it to J.R to read in the motel.
In the popular video game Deus Ex, one of the three possible ending quotes is Gibran's quote: "Yesterday we obeyed kings and bent our necks before emperors. But today we kneel only to truth..." The western spelling of his name, Kahlil Gibran, was used to credit him.
Jazz saxophonist Jackie McLean's "Kahlil the Prophet" is on his album Destination...Out! (1963) (Blue Note BLP 4165)
Jason Mraz's song "God moves through you" on the album Selections For Friends features words from the poem "The Prophet"
The lyrics to David Bowie's "The Width of a Circle", off his album The Man Who Sold the World (1970), relates a surrealist scene in which the narrator and his doppelgänger seek the help of a blackbird, who just "laughed insane and quipped 'Kahlil Gibran'".
Mad Magazine satirized him in The Profit by Kellogg Allbran.

masa' karya Khalil gibran dibandingkan Al Qur'an..??


Iya nih, Milala... gimana sih kok kamu membandingkan karya Khalil Gibran dengan Quran. Ngga level dong ah..!

Kalo tulisan Khalil Gibran itu kan banyak yang suka, ngga peduli agama apa yang dianut pembacanya. Hindu kek, Budha kek, Kristen kek.. pokoknya banyak yang suka.

Nah, klo Quran itu kan yang suka cuma muslim-muslim dongok. Klo muslim cerdas pasti lebih memilih baca koran dibanding kuran. Hehe...


kahlil gibran cuma manusia yang tak bermoral tuuuh ternayta.dulu aku suka karyanya.tpi setelah liaht forum ini aku jadi benci ma karyanya.malah makin mantab ma Al-Qur'an.

slowman wrote:Saya tidak buta, Milala, ketika memilih Islam. Kalau Anda betul-betul mau membandingkan Alquran dengan karya Kahlil Gibran, lihat lagi karya-karya Khalil Gibran yang berbahasa Arab. Kemudian bandingkan dengan Alquran dalam bahasa aslinya, bahasa Arab. Lengkapi pengetahuan Anda tentang tata bahasa dan sastra Arab. Setelah itu, baru Anda bahwa betapa tinggi nilai Alquran dibandingkan dengan karya Khalil Gibran. Jika Anda tidak mengerti bahasa Arab, sulit Anda memahami betapa piawainya bahasa Alquran.


Kamu memang tidak buta, tapi kamu CONGOK!!!
Sudah tau eslam tuh agama bangsat & palsu, kok ya masih aja kamu pilih.

Ribut2 soal Khalil Gibran.....kesimpulan.....Muslim2 Picik dan aseli ****.....hihihihihihihi....tepatnya Gibran adalah seorang Kristen Maronit.......dan dia adalah seorang seniman dan penyair, juga penulis....

Muslim di sini aneh.....ada:
1. seseorang yang membandingkan dia berdasarkan jumlah pengikut, padahal kalau kita membaca karya Gibran, kita menikmati isi karyanya seperti kita menikmati lukisan....

2.Ada yang mengklaim Gibran tak bermoral....Aseli ini pernyataan yang aneh. Benar....Gibran hanya seorang manusia....ia tidak luput dari kesalahannya. Ia hanya lelaki yang cintanya tiga kali kandas :P....But how about MUHAMMAD?? Setiap kali dia melakukan perbuatan amoral....kalian hanya bisa menciptakan alasan untuk membenarkannya......parah kan??

3. Untuk seseorang yang Gak Menelusuri lebih jauh.........Kamu kasihan sekali yah.....well.....Gibran memang pernah mengatakan kira2 seperti ini Nabi Isa ada di dada kananku, Muhammad ada di dada kiriku.....But for your information.....ia pada akhirnya juga mati sebagai seorang kristiani....dalam pandanganku,Ia tidak bisa dikatakan sebagai pemuja atau pemeluk yang benar2 memeluk suatu agama tertentu...Ia hanya seorang penyair yang mengagumi dan menganalisis tokoh2 yang ia kagumi......and thats all....

4. Untuk muslim di sinih......sampai kapan sih....kalian bakal asbun.....jadi teringat alley shatree nih.....tukang ngubah argumen sesuka hatinya.....isi otak = 0
