Hello! It's an honor to know such a great person was from the same tiny town where I was born. I enjoyed tremendously reading about his work and life.
Superb resource. Congratulations are in order. Thank you.
Great ideas on your website!
You did a great job on your web page!

I am trying to put together a unit for my Contemporary World Lit class, and I'd like to add some Middle Eastern poets and short story writers. I would love the advice of an authority about who should be included in such an overview. Thank you.
Ameen Rihani is another Lebanese Christian who has contributed tremendously to the Arabic Literature, proving, again, that Arabic is not just Islam...
Well done for the symposium in Washington, D.C.
Please keep organizing such events and reviving such a great poet/writer.
Great site.. but it pains me to see another Lebanese titan being hijacked by a culturally and intellectually bankrupt Arabism. Granted, Rihani was a champion of linguistic "Arabism", and toiled all his life to melt the Middle East's diverse peoples into a supra-Arab identity; still, he must be tormented by what an intolerant, narrow-minded and obscurantist ideology Arabism has become. Rihani is Lebanese and a bequest of Lebanon's national genius! As any good Lebanese merchant, he curried favor from the Arabs for financial expediency, but he was NEVER an "Arab".
My heritage is Lebanese, yet I only recently learned of Ameen Rahani. I want to know more.
I play CyberSurfari and this site rocks!
Mabrouk! We were very impressed not only with the design of the website, but the remarkable accomplishments in poetry, prose, and unifying influence in matters of philosophy and religion of Ameen Rihani. Scholars and persons of such foresight and wisdom are rare occurrences in the history of mankind. It is really a privilege to know Rihanis who have successfully continued the tradition established by Ameen Rihani.
I was impressed. I knew only Khalil Gibran from Lebanon to have written such literature. Rihani is new for me what help to increase my knowledge in this area.
Thanks a lot
As an Arabic student, I found this website to be very useful with the culture projects I've been assigned. I also appreciate Mr. Rihani's works, as they strike me as very original and insightful to his point of views.
Great site for a great person that Ameen Rihani is!
Super site. Wirklich interessant. Werde sicher noch verlinken. Aus unseren Portal hier. Lg und viel glόck
I found this place of poetry in a moment of universal sorrow. I caught some poems of Ameen Rihani and I put them with a series of pictures from N.Y. to Afghanistan. It looks sad, but real. Just for reflection I did this. Once again, the poetry as an island of salvation for humankind.
I am pleased to have "discovered" this site. Thank you for a wonderful resource.
J'ai vu vos poesies dans lebanonart.net, je voulais vous feliciter. Je suis d'origine Libanaise... Mais j'habite Paris maintenant...
Great site for a great icon of the Arab American Literature.
Good Luck for this job...
Most grateful if you are willing to furnish me Al-Makarν's bibliography and bookstore names and addresses where I could buy his works (not in Arabic, please)
A friend of mine is Lebanese and this past week was his birthday, so I wanted to send him a special message. Browsing through the net, I found this site and a beautiful piece of the Chant of Mystics written by Rihani which I sent him.
Beautiful site! Congratulations!
I would be glad if I can join your company.
I had not heard of Ameen until my father had recently mentioned him. I am fascinated at the fact that there is a Rihani in Arab-American Literature, and a popular one to say the least.
I would like for Mr. Rihani's writings to be read all over the world so that people see how wonderful his work is.
I'm originally from Russia, but really love Rihani's works! He is just amazing! I kept watching after this website for quite a long time, and it's a GREAT pleasure to see it constantly being updated, a lot of new stuff has been added!! Thanks to all of you!
P.S. Can I buy his books in English anywhere BUT Amazon? All the best!!!
You guys are great!! I wish I was Lebanese.
I was pleased to see again one Lebanese person showing to the world how civilized we are despite the negative perspective in which we are seen in the world.
Great reading! Definitely sparked my interest into obtaining his books. Looking forward to it.
I like great Lebanese people.
I have not read anything from Ameen Rihani. This is my first glance at his work.
I am proud to be Lebanese because Ameen Rihani was.
I would really like to congratulate the people behind this website. It has been a pleasure for me to know that great Lebanese people such as Ameen Rihani are having an organization after them to preserve their rights. I hope other great people do the same too.
Thanks to a true friend and unofficial Ambassador, Fouad Youssef Sader (see 54), I have been introduced to Kahlil Gibran and now to Ameen Rihani. I salute the efforts of my friend to further knowledge of the writings of Arab authors dedicated to "reconcile matter and soul, reason and faith, and the East and West".
I have admired Rihani's work for a long time. Recently I wrote another biography of Abdul Aziz ibn Abdur Rahman ibn Faisal ibn Turki as Saud to add a tenth to the nine already published in English about the man whom I met in 1939. I would like to quote several comments in Rihani's 1928 book about Ibn Saud titled: "Ibn Sa'oud of Arabia: His People and His Land" republished in 1983 by Constable. I am told by Constable that the rights to this book are now in the hands of Ameen Albert Rihani, c/o the International College PO Box 11-0236 Beirut Lebanon. Do you know of any more easily accessible address for Mr. Rihani than the ordinary post? I am prepared to pay for the privilege of using these short quotations, but must state that the book is dry and will enjoy no commercial success. It will be published for download online only. The thesis is a critique of the inferences of previous writers concerning the king's motives amd inaccuracies regarding his conduct You have my E-mail address above if a more rapid means of communicating with Mr. Rihani is available...
I just came on because I was playing CyberSurfari and an answer was on this page.
