As-Salaam alaikum,
Reciting Surat Ikhlas (chapter 112) of the Holy Qur'an is compared to complete recitation of one-third of the entire Qur'an. Reciting it is a source/means of blessings for the reciter. Note that Allah Ta'ala sent the Qur'an in 3 parts:--
(1) A third of it is comprised of Legal Rulings.
(2) A third comprises of Exhortations of Promises and Warnings.
(3) A third comprises of Discussing Allah's Names and Attributes, and Surat Ikhlas brings together within it those Names and Attributes.

The Surat mentions 2 Names of Allah which together indicate all the attributes of Perfection. They are not mentioned in any other verse/ayat: "al-AHAD" and "al-SAMAD". These 2 names indicate the Oneness of the Sacred Being who Possesses all the attributes of perfection.

Allah is Ahad-- His Singularity of Existence cannot be shared by another entity.
Allah is Samad-- His Dignity and Sovereignty reaches the extent where all other things in existence depend on for all their needs.
