What is Ijazah?
Ijazah, in its linguistic sense, means 'permission.' In a technical context, it signifies the authorization to narrate the Quran through authenticated chains of narrators. Essentially, Ijazah is a certification that grants one permission to teach and recite the Holy Quran with proper Tajweed, with a chain of narration leading back to the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) and ultimately to Allah (S.W.T).
In the Online Ijazah course program, learners can receive Ijazah certification from a qualified Imam or scholar. This Ijazah can pertain to Quranic recitation with Tajweed or recitation from memory. The sheikh or a female teacher will assess the learner's Quranic recitation, ensuring it adheres to the rules of Tajweed. Ijazah for memorization (Hifz) is granted once the learner successfully recites the entire Quran from memory to the teacher. This is the process of obtaining Ijazah in Quranic recitation and memorization.
