The Beautiful Recitation of the Last Chapter from the Holy Quran by Shaikh Abdul Basit Abdus Samad.
Shaikh Abdul Basit 'Abd us-Samad (1927-1988) (عبد الباسط عبد الصمد), was a renowned Qari (reciter of the Qur'an). Many modern reciters try to imitate his style. Shaykh Abdul Basit is the only Qari to have won three world Qirat competitions in the early 1970's. Shaikh 'Abd us-Samad was one of the first huffaz to make commercial recordings of his recitations, and the first president of the newly formed Reciters' Union in Egypt. He is best known for his recitation of Sura Al-Fatiha, the first chapter of the Qur'an.
Shaikh Abd us-Samad traveled extensively outside Egypt; in 1961, he recited at the Badshahi Masjid, in Lahore, Pakistan. In 1987, whilst on a visit to America, Shaikh Abd us-Samad related a story from one trip he made to the Soviet Union, with then Egyptian president Gamal Abdel Nasser.
Shaikh Abdul Basit Abdus Samad was asked to recite for some leaders of the Soviet party . He chose to recite Sura Ta-Ha, which is an important sura in Islamic history; it was the chapter of the Qur'an which had caused Umar ibn al-Khattāb to become a Muslim upon listening to it. Shaikh Abd us-Samad recounts that four to five of his listeners from the Communist Party were in tears, although they didn't understand what was being read, but were compelled to cry because of his recitation. Abdul Basit cites the event as a miracle he had experienced during one of his travels, reminiscent of other accounts in Islamic history of Meccan converts from recitation.
Shaikh Abd us-Samad died in 1988, and is survived by his three sons (from eldest to the youngest): Yasir, Hisham, and Tariq. Yasir has also became a Qari following his father's footsteps.
