A truly instructive and informative site about a towering and visionary Arab-American writer. Ameen Rihani remains one of the few Arab immigrants to America who managed to be fully integrated in the American cultural scene of the time, without losing sight of his Arabic roots. Such a balance could only exist in a man of great wisdom and enlightened knowledge. Maybe the world today is more in need of a man like Rihani than ever before.
I am so happy to read all Rihani's works.
Hi. This site is very good and it is very useful. Thank you!
I love Ameen Rihani's works. I wish I could read them in the original. I read everything here and will definitely try to find some more works. They are amazing.
I wish you continued success!
How far removed can my Arab/Lebanese descent be to enter this scholarship? I have a Lebanese great great grandfather who relocated my family to Cuba, and after the Castro revolution we emigrated to the United States.
We admire such a pioneer. We love your work and your village Freike misses you so much. It's a great honor for me to be living in Freike, the village of Amin el Rihani.
Thank you for everything. I appreciate it.
Ameen, as I understand it, was a relative of my grandfather, one or two generations away. My family roots were in Northern Iraq, vrs Lebanon. It's good to see his writings, and I will certainly take time to read them.
Thanks for your efforts!
Very interesting website; i would like to read some of the writings. My grandparents came to America from Juniyah and Zouk Mikael, Lebanon. My grandfather was Nageeb AbouChabkeh. My grandmother was Haifa Basha Akiki. My dream is to visit their places of birth one day. They died before I was born.
I came upon this website while seeking potential scholarships for my teenage sons.
I have a poem that hangs on my wall 'To Be' written by Mr. Rihani, I only wish that I was around when he was still in this world and to have the pleasure of his presence in my life. So we cling to his works in books and hope to understand and find contentment.
Well, after I read Ameen Rihani's biography, I learned more and more about him. He seems to have been a wonderful and fascinating man. Your bookshop is great, and it is really interesting to read its contents.
I just want to tell you congratulations on a great accomplishment, and good luck! This is really a great site!
I am very proud to be Lebanese, and very proud of you, Ameen Rihani.
Beautiful website! Very professional and pleasant to look at. We have visited this site many times and always find very useful information.
Thanks for sharing your guest book.
Being A Lebanese-American , I just Admire his work and intellect. He is special and that applies to somehting that is admired and precious and which can not be replaced.
Special is the word that best describes him.
A great job to make you culturised...
I am in love with all the literature which Ameen Rihani left us. I wish the Arabs, and especially the politicians, read his books in order to learn about the Arab unity he has longed to see among the Arab world.
I see so many Hispanic, Black and many other ethnic groups scholarship opportunities. But this is the first time I came across an Arab one. Thank you.
What a wonderful surprise to discover such an excellent site on this author I was not familiar with. Next to Gibran and the contemporary ones such as Alexandre Najjar, Amin Maalouf or Elias Khoury, Rihani will definitely find his place on my bookcase, and memory, to honor Lebanon, a Dearest Land of mine, in the language of my heart. I am touched by his in-betweenness of two worlds and two languages, that I also share, and I cannot wait to meet his soul through his words and generosity to the world. And be sure I will pay a visit to the Museum on my trip to Beyrouth next February.
Thank you for hosting my thoughts and providing so deep a feeling of what encountering is, sometimes.
Great inspiration for all of us!
I designed a course in celebration of Rihani's life and contributions for newly admitted students to the University of Michigan, Dearborn. The Course LIBS 113 will be offered in the Fall, 2009. I own several memos from the author to an immigrant from Nazareth named Ameen Farah. May their memory be eternal.
I just started my PhD on Charles Malik in the University of London's School of Oriental and African Studies, and the first exercise that the supervisor gave me was to look into Amin al-Rihani and try to find common ground with Malik.
Your site is amazing. I would like to suggest that you include one more section to your site about writing services, such as term-paper writing, essay writing and thesis writing.
I am trying to reach the Temenos Academy for two weeks or so. Is there any possibility that you could help me? I am a professor of Islamic theology, and work as a calligrapher and have a need to visit the Academy.
Could anyone send me any works of Amin, dated 1900 about New York (The New World)?
I am very proud to be Lebanese, and very proud of you Ameen Rihani.
I would like to learn more about his novels in English, by the 1900's.
The author Amin Al Rihani has two portraits: The first one of an Arabic literature writer that I read about in 'Qualb Loubnan' while at school, in addition to other Lebanese writers like Maroun Abboud, Youssef Awwad, Mikhael Neameh, and of course Gibran. The other side of Ameen Rihani is of a Pan Arab Nationalist, i.e. a Politician to the side of Sharif Hussein, Constantine Zureik and others.
I mentioned his name in a salute tribute to his efforts in Arabic Nationalism in two of my papers published on the Morepist Press website s.com/mp/. The first one about "A Systemic Approach To Peace in the Middle East" that appears in General Politics, and the other on "Cartesian, Messianic and Mahdeic Approach to Peace" that appears in the Opinion section. Both papers present an objective/subjective analysis to the question of peace from an academic angle.
Wonderful site! Thank you for your continued support.
Great site for all students and teachers thirsty for information on our cultural heritage and our greatest writer of all times, Rihani.
Ameen Al Rihani is one of my schoolers that I am proud of.
Amazing work by Ameen Rihani! I really love his efforts.
Hope we keep appreciating our national symbols and writers.
A few years ago my life changed because I discovered Gibran's works. Today (5th June 2007) I know that, again, my life has changed because of Rihani's work. Both men are inspirational. Please put a mark on Google Earth for Rihani's village Freike.
J'aime beaucoup ce site
Amazing works of Ameen Rihani...
And great site!!!
I am 17 years old ,and I have started reading some of Ameen Rihani's book excerpts. I was at first excited with the idea that we share the same family name, but now I am really impressed with his writings. If possible, please advise me which books to start with because they are not taught in schools in Jordan like in Lebanon.
Great website! Some years ago, Kahlil Gibran led me to Ameen Rihani and over 2 years ago, Dr. Suheil Bushrui's essays on Rihani led me to this website. At that time, I did not notice this guestbook - is this a new addition? Anyway, I have been spreading the word among my friends about Ameen Rihani because I feel that if his writings had been from the beginning required reading in appropriate grade levels, we and our children would have grown up understanding the beautiful culture and great contributions of the East, and the world today--and tomorrow--would be predominantly marked by harmony and diversity instead of divisions and violence.
I am currently reading my first Ameen Rihani book translated from Arabic THE HEART OF LEBANON, a part of the Murex Series-Lebanese Authors, a project overseen by his nephew and namesake Dr. Ameen Rihani, who holds a very high position at Notre Dame University in Lebanon. I bought my copy at lebanonart.com. I am enjoying this book tremendously.
I'd like to see Lebanon someday compare the now and what he saw in the very early 1900's. I've promised myself that this year and next will be devoted to buying Rihani's books.
A very creative site!
Beautiful website ! Very professional and pleasant to look at. We have visited this site many times and always find very useful information.
Than k you for all you do!
What a pleasure! No matter how many times I read the Books of Amin Rhani, I feel the urge to go back and read those books over and over again. I am so impressed with this site. Excellent job.
I have read few of his books, in particular the travels in Najd and Arab kings without knowing much about the biography of Rihani.
Enjoyed this site.
This is very interesting. I have learned a lot. I grew up near Highland Park and Dearborn Michigan. I have Lebanese friends and relatives. all the best to you!
Absolutely wonderful website! Thank you for the compilations, history and best of all, the "Book Purchase" section.
Absolutely amazing and very good website. Keep up the good work.
