The earth gods by Kahlil Gibran( Book )

1 edition published in 1998 in Arabic and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Earth Gods, the last book to be published while Gibran was still in this world, came into the poet's hands two weeks before he was to lay aside all earthly volumes. ... He had a peculiar feeling of tenderness for this book, unlike what he felt for any of the others. 'Because, ' he said, 'it was written out of the poet's hell'a process of childbirth and child-bearing.' ... "It is, in my opinion, one of the greatest poems in the language. The Earth Gods is, perhaps, a book for the mystic, a poet's book for poets, for the initiate and the dreamer of vast dreams. Yet I have known those who pride themselves on being highly practical and feet-on-the-ground, who disown any bent toward the mystical and the occult, to pronounce it a book of wonder and power. And as a child of seven to whom I read portions of the poem on request, says unvaryingly, 'Read it again!' This, perhaps, for the music and the almost unearthly beauty of rhythm."

Kitāb Kalīlah wa-Dimnah by Baydbā( Book )

1 edition published in 2005 in Arabic and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Kalila and Dimna was originally written in Sanskrit, probably in Kashmir, sometime in the fourth century A.D. In Sanskrit it was called the Panchatantra, or "Five Discourses." Three hundred years later, after the Muslim conquest of Persia and the Near East, Ibn al-Mukaffa' chanced upon Burzoeʹs Pehlavi version and translated it into Arabic in a style so lucid it is still considered a model of Arabic prose. Called Kalila and Dimna, after the two jackals who are the main characters, the book was written mainly for the instruction of civil servants. The book puts wisdom fables put into the mouths of animals for the edification of humans. It was so entertaining, however, that it proved popular with all classes, entered the folklore of the Muslim world, and was carried by the Arabs to Spain. There it was translated into Old Spanish in the 13th century. In Italy it was one of the first books to appear after the invention of printing
