Qari Abdul Basit
Qari ‘Abdul-Basit ‘Abdus-Samad (1927–1988) (Arabic; عبد الباسط عبد الصمد),(Kurdî; Abdulbasit Abdussemed), was a renowned Egyptian Qari (reciter of the Qur'an). As such, many modern reciters try to imitate his style. The Qari had won three world Qira'at competitions in the early 1970s. ‘Abdus-Samad was one of the first huffaz to make commercial recordings of his recitations, and the first president of the Reciters' Union in Egypt.
