Trivia

Although broadly sharing the same film unit (director, editor, etc.), Two different versions of the film (one in English and the other in Arabic), were shot simultaneously, scene by scene. Two completely different sets of actors shared the same set; once a scene had been established, one actor would play a character in one language, and then the whole scene reshot with his corresponding number speaking in the other language. The main (English) version was released as "The Message", while the Arabic version became "Al-Risalah". See more »

Quotes

Bilal: Exiled and in favour! Comply with the rules of war of the Prophet. Save the children, the old men, the women and the patients, do not cut down trees. Do not make evil with the man who works with the field. Fight your oppressors and those which have stolen you.

Moustapha Akkad and Al-risâlah
11 April 2013 | by (morocco) – See all my reviews

honestly one of the best films ever made. this movie shows the life of Muhammad the prophet and messenger of Islam(Peace be upon him). the director of this movie is Moustapha Akkad who was killed in a suicide attack. and there is some rumors that he was killed because he directed this film. Mustapha Akkad one of the pioneering Arabic directors, and to me that is enough. The story of Islam put in its best form on motion picture. I recommend this movie to every one of all ages; especially people that would like to know or get a better understanding of haw the religion of Islam started. and i advice everyone to watch it whatever your religion.
