Imaam adh-Dhahabi said, “’Abdullaah ibn Idrees ibn Yazeed ibn ’Abdur-Rahmaan, the Imaam, the Great Memoriser [Haafidh], the Master Reciter [Expert in the Dialects of the Quraan, Muqri’], the Exemplary, The Shaikh of Islaam, Abu Muhammad al-Awdi, al-Kufi [d. 192 ah] …

About him Hussain al-’Anqaziyy said, ‘When death came upon [’Abdullaah] Ibn Idrees, may Allaah have mercy on him, his daughter wept, so he said, “Don’t cry, O Daughter, for I have finished reciting the Quraan in this house four thousand times.’”
