Al Duri qira’at of the Holy Quran:

Abu ‘Amr Hafs Ibn ‘Umar Ibn ‘Abd al-‘Aziz al-Baghdadi, better known as Al-Duri (150-246AH), was a significant figure in the transmission of the Qira’at, or methods of reciting the Quran. Of the seven canonical reciters, al-Duri was a transmitter for two entirely separate methods: that of Abu ‘Amr ibn al-‘Ala’ and that of Al-Kisa’i.
