Ijazah of the Holy Quran

Al-dirassa center offers you the possibility to obtain an Ijazah course. Thus, the al-dirassa center addresses this offer to all students who have memorized all the Quran with our professors. It is the highest level that the student can achieve.

  • The word ijazah in Arabic means permission; in the language of scholars, it means permission to teach the psalmody of the Holy Quran. It is also the highest degree of reading perfection of the Quran. To get the ijazah, the student has to recite the Qur’an from memory from beginning to end, observing all the psalmody rules and repeating the words that can be read in several ways (extension time, intonations of the vowels, etc.) and in every way possible to his Shaykh. Thus, only a professor who has himself obtained it with an authentic chain of transmission can give it.
  • This line is called Sanad. All the members of the chain are known for their perfection in the reciting. Furthermore, this chain (sanad) continues from the Prophet Muhammad– peace be upon Him – to the Ijazah owner.
  • As a result, al ijazah is permission to teach the Holy Quran. This tradition makes it possible to transmit the Qur’an in its authenticity to future generations as the Prophet (saw) shared it and to preserve him from any change and any falsification. Thus, The Ijazah the official permission to teach the Holy Quran  Ijazah.

  • Thirdly: the al-dirassa center will send an official certificate signed by the center and the teacher himself. Thus, this certificate will allow the student to teach the Quran in mosques, Islamic centers, or Islamic universities.
