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. He is best known for his recitation of sura al-Fatiha, the first chapter of the Qur’an, which is a key sura (chapter) in the five daily Islamic canonical prayers.
