Tajwid 5 Juz' Ijazah Certification

Course Category: Tajwid 

Course Code: TAJ 405

Instructor: Ribaat Tajwid Teachers

Course Description: 

The Tajwid 5 Juz' Ijazah is a certification which recognizes that the bearer has recited the last 100 pages of the Holy Quran from memory with complete application of the rules of tajwīd, and authorizes its bearer to teach what they have memorized.

All teachers in the track as well as the Tajwid Committee hold the same ijāzah through a connected sanad directly from the Prophet (s) on the recitation of Hafs. The Ribaat 5 Juz' Ijazah is issued by Rabata and the Ribaat Academic Institute and authorized by the Ribaat Tajwid Committee.

Through this program, students will work individually with their instructors to memorize and recite the last five juz' (approximately 100 pages) of the Holy Quran from start to finish. Each student will be paired with a certified tajwīd teacher, either online or locally, with whom she will work one-on-one. 

This program will be complete when the student has recited the last five juz' of the Holy Quran to one tajwīd teacher, and passes an oral examination for each juz'.
