In the tradition of the beloved masterpiece The Prophet, Hajjar Gibran -- an ancestral descendant of Kahlil Gibran -- presents a parable of spiritual awakening based on his often heartbreaking and ultimately triumphant life. With its universal themes, personal narrative, and timeless advice, The Return of the Prophet opens the doorway to a new generation's classic, and a modern understanding of timeless spiritual wisdom. Hajjar recalls an intimate, spiritual connection with the Prophet while journeying together through the themes of abundance, betrayal, desire, forgiveness, and others. Stunning charcoal illustrations throughout give readers a glimpse into the visions Hajjar experienced during his troubled past.

It was a dark night of the soul that triggered a most fortunate collaboration – fortunate for Hajjar Gibran in that it set him on the spiritual path that became his life’s work, and fortunate for us in that it brings back in a modern context the same mellifluous poetry of the spirit that touched our hearts when we first read The Prophet by Khalil Gibran. Hajjar went into a tailspin of drugs and despair in the years following his brother’s tragic death. He began to have visions of a figure he later recognized on the cover of a book his mother gave him at his lowest ebb. It was his great uncle Khalil Gibran who became his mentor, inspiring Hajjar to discover his life’s purpose and explore the mysteries of existence.

In reading this book, I couldn't figure out if it was trying to be fiction or non-fiction, biography, poem, or something else entirely. I found it difficult to engage with this book due to its lack of focus.
