Shaykh Muhammad Rifat (ra) (1882 - May 14, 1950) was the first Quran reciter to read on Egyptian Cairo Radio on May 31, 1934, and his voice and style, as well as his general character, have been promoted as a model of the ideal reciter.
Rifat is often praised for correlating melody to the meaning of the Qur'anic Verses, a feat known in Arabic as tasweer al-mana.
