Studio Arabiya offers a complete Ijaazah program in the Quran with a strong Sanad to the Prophet Muhammad (SAW). The Ijaazah program starts with the Quran Memorization and/or Tajweed course. Once you qualify, you can apply for the chance to read for your Ijaazah. We offer 2 kinds of Ijazaat: Reading and Memorization. Upon completing the Ijaazah program, you’ll receive a certificate from Studio Arabiya as well as the Ijaazah with Sanad from your scholar.
Who it is for:
The ijaazah program is for those who have studied and perfected their tajweed and memorization (if reading for an ijaazah in hifz). Students must meet the required level of tajweed before entering the program. A student who does not qualify will not be accepted into the ijaazah program until they are ready.
Steps to Get Your Ijaazah:
1. Complete the Qur'an Course
Complete our Qur'an Course. Complete our tajweed course and the Qur'an memorization course before beginning the Ijaazah course. Once your teacher suggests that you are ready, you may register to begin preparing for your Ijaazah.
2. Preparation for Ijaazah Course
Upon the suggestion and evaluation of your Qur'an teacher, students move to the Preparation Course for the Ijaazah program. This step, taking 3-6 months, prepares the student for reading, correcting any mistakes in the reading or memorization before beginning the official reading for the Ijaazah. The preparation course is the key to helping the student read minimal number of times for the certificate.
3. Enroll in Ijaazah Course
Upon the suggestion of your Qur'an teacher, you may register for the Ijaazah course. This will begin your reading of the Qur'an for a sheikh(a).
4. Sheikh Recommendation for Receiving your Ijaazah
Upon completing the reading of the Qur'an, your teacher may or may not recommend you to receive your Ijaazah certificate. The Ijaazah certificate is only granted upon recommendation of the teacher. Studio Arabiya Institute will not override the teacher's decision and no refunds will be given, should the student not earn the ijaazah after the first reading.
* Note: As we take giving an ijaazah seriously, a student is not guaranteed to receive their ijaazah certificate upon completing the first reading. The student may be required to return to reviewing in the Qur'an course and read a second (or third, or more) time for the certificate.
5. Receive Ijaazah
Upon receiving the recommendation for a certificate by the teacher, student may order their official Ijaazah certificate to be mailed to them. There is an additional fee ($500 one-time fee) for the official hard copy of the certificate mailed. This fee covers all administrative fees, teacher compensation and shipping costs.
