Ijaazah Simplified


An ijaazah is a license authorizing its holder to transmit a certain text or subject, for example the Science of Tajweed, Hadeeth, etc., which is issued by someone already possessing such authority. It is mainly associated with transmission of Islamic

knowledge. The license implies that the student has acquired this knowledge from the issuer of the ijaazah through first-hand oral instruction.

The Ijaazah Simplified is for students who have completed our Tajweed Simplified program or a similar course at another institution. After completion of this course and passing the theory and practical exams, students will receive ijaazah in the Reading of Imam Hafs from ‘Aasim (The 5th Qaari) by the way of Ash-Shaatibiyyah.
