The Prophet (script) was inspired by an old parable I came across on the Internet:
“A man said to the Prophet, ‘Give me advice.’ The Prophet said, ‘Do not get angry.’ The man asked repeatedly, and the Prophet answered each time, ‘Do not get angry.'”
I found it amusing that the man persistently questions the Prophet even though he’s already given his answer, seeming like he’s attempting to aggravate him to get him to contradict himself. This elaboration was the basis for the film and allowed for a comment on religious hypocrisy.
A modern-day prophet has some sage advice for an inquisitive young man, but he’s not about to take it without question.
