Sudhir Viyas D was on board as the executive producer for the venture. The original Arabic lyrics used in the single is from the Arabic poem which goes by the same title. The poem ‘Tala al-Badu Alayna’ is believed to be the song sung by Ansar (the local inhabitants of Medina) to Prophet Mohammed upon his arrival at Medina.

The track’s composing, mixing and arranging has been done by Yuvan Shankar Raja. On the professional front, Yuvan has a number of projects in the pipeline including upcoming Tamil movies Valimai, Maanaadu and Naane Varuven, among others.
