Dr. Dahesh is best known for his humanistic views and spiritual guidance that calls for global brotherhood and the unity of religions through the understanding of spiritual laws, Divine justice, reincarnation, just deserts and freedom of choice. His Message, explains the purity of religions and how people can be brought together regardless of their differences through restoring faith in the essence of religion. He is a great writer who has had a profound influence on many readers. His books are characterized by breadth and diversity, constituting a comprehensive and integrated spiritual vision encompassing the meaning of life and death; and defining differences between human beings in terms of health, perceptive abilities, and tendencies, whether they are virtuous or vicious. They shed light on the causes of wars and the mass psychology of peoples; and reveal the secrets of the lives of animals, plants and objects, as well as the universal civilization inhabiting millions of planets that rotate in the spheres of the galaxies. Born on the first of June 1909, in Jerusalem, the land of divine inspiration, and the birthplace of prophets, then traveled as a child with his family to Beirut where he obtained the Lebanese citizenship. His father died while he was still a child of eleven years, and he was brought up as an orphan. Between the years 1942 and 1944, he gained fame and his ideas began to spread. The increasing number of supporters and those who embraced his teachings alarmed the sectarian Lebanese authorities who unduly persecuted him. The government deprived him of his Lebanese citizenship in 1944, and exiled him from Lebanon without trial and without legal justification. However, God returned him secretly to Beirut, and spiritually supported him to wage a choking, head cracking, and heart breaking relentless pen war against his enemies. He wrote defending his usurped rights and his forfeited liberty until he aroused the people against the government, eventually leading them to overthrow the oppressive regime and he regained his citizenship of which he had despotically been deprived. In 1969, he resumed his travels around the world, which lasted until the summer of 1983. He visited the Arab countries as well as the capitals and large cities of Africa, Europe, Asia, and North America. He recorded his views of each country he visited and of its people and their traditions; and described its architecture and civilization, stating his genuine impressions in a diverting and accurate descriptive style, in a series consisting of 22 volumes entitled Dr. Dahesh's Journeys Around The World. Despite numerous difficulties, and the instability of traveling from place to place, he was able to write tens of other books within the different literary genres; and he managed to be creative in each genre whether in the novel, or meditative writing, or social criticism; and whether his work comprised a detailed description of human emotions, or nature, or the joys of heaven, or the horrors of hell... It is worth noting that his novel entitled Memoirs of a Dinar, whose narrative events cover the greater part of the twentieth century, ends in a comprehensive vision of an overall extinction of life. The same is true of his exciting collection of short stories entitled Strange Stories and Wonderful Tales, which consists of four volumes. Many Arab writers and poets, who were full of admiration for Dr. Dahesh's writings, undertook to rewrite them into fascinating poems. Dr. Dahesh's ideas for social reform, his new teachings, and the extraordinary spiritual side of his life, attracted a large number of researchers and university professors, who wrote complete volumes to provide an account of Daheshism his Spiritual Faith, Struggle for Virtuous Freedom "God' Boon to all creatures"; his broad philosophical horizons; his rich and intensely vivid style and the element of thrill and suspense in his writings.
