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

Narrator: If this Coran were revealed to a mount, it would collapse even off feared Allah, the Great, said the truth. The Prophet, elected official by Allah to carry what the mountains can not, is too great and inaccessible to be represented by a human. For that we will not see nor his image neither his voice nor his shade, throughout this film.

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.
