Tajwid 5 Juz' Certificate

Course Category: Tajwid 

Course Code: TAJ 405

Instructor: Ribaat Tajwid Teachers

Course Description: 

Through this program, students will work individually with their instructors to memorize the last five juz’ of the Holy Quran (about 100 pages) from start to finish. Each student will be paired with a certified tajwid teacher, either online or locally, with whom she will work with one-on-one. All teachers assigned at this level hold the same ijazah through a connected sanad directly from the Prophet (s) in the Hafs ‘an Asim recitation.

This certificate is issued when the student has recited the last five juz’ of the Holy Quran to one tajwid teacher and passes an oral examination for each juz’, and then for all five at once by the Ribaat Tajwid Committee. The Ribaat 5 Juz’ Certificate is issued by Rabata and the Ribaat Academic Institute and authorized by the Ribaat Tajwid Committee. All testing for this certificate will be done online.
