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: One do not have the faith,that if one wishes for his next what one wishes for oneself. That which falls asleep the full belly, whereas its neighbor is hungry, are not Muslim.

Magnificent movie
28 October 2000 | by (Bahrain) – See all my reviews

The movie is directed by 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.
