"The [religious] fanatic drew a small circle and left me, the infidel, outside it. However, I, with the help of love, won over him – I drew a large circle and included him."
Ameen Rihani, 1927

The Rihani Saga is one of a kind. It is somewhat unique. Ameen F. Rihani left an appreciable amount of his works unpublished, unclassified, unheard of, mostly handwritten. It took a vigorously enterprising brother, Albert F. Rihani and after him his children Ameen, May, Ramzi and Sarmad, to undertake the gigantic task of researching, classifying, analyzing, putting together the unpublished part of Ameen Rihani's works. They have all participated, each in his or her own way, in enhancing the legacy of Ameen Rihani. This effort is still faithfully and persistently continuing. The enrihani.org">Ameen Rihani Home Page on the Internet, is the addition of another jewel to the crown. An illustration of the ongoing effort is the recent redesign of the site.

Well done my dear ones!
Keep up the good work.
God bless you all.
   

Through my uncles and aunt, Ramzi, Ameen, Sarmad and May, I got to know and admire one of my relatives, who has visited my grandparents here in Merida, Mexico, in 1914. I read some of his work and I think it is great.
             

I was greatly privileged during my early years in Beirut to be a neighbor and a close friend of Ameen Rihani's nephews & neice: Amin, Ramzi, Sarmad and May. During this period, I have frequently visited their beautiful village home and their Uncle's lovely museum in Freike, overlooking the spectacular mountains of Lebanon. In those years I have learned a lot about this giant writer & poet, firstly from my own father, and later during my school years at I.C. in Beirut. The works of Ameen Rihani have contributed a wealth of priceless volumes to many generations of Arabs, a source of pride to all of us. This web site reflects the work of a great man whose writings have added richness to Arabic literature through the magic of his pen. God bless his soul.
                                                     

Just to say hello to his nephew Amine.
       

Very interesting and informative site.
