As-Salaam alaikum,
 Reciting chapter 112 of the Holy Qur'an, Surat Ikhlas, is compared to complete recitation of one-third of the entire Qur'an. Reciting it is a means of blessing 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 is comprised of exhortations of promises and warnings.
(3) A third is comprised of discussing Allah's Names and Attributes.. and Surat Ikhlas brings together within it those Names and Attributes.

The Surah mentions 2 Names of Allah which together indicate all the Attributes of perfection. They are not mentioned in any other verse: "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...Jallah-Jalalahu, Tabaraka Wa Ta'ala!!
