The minimum requirements for the admission into the Ijazah program are:
- Having already memorized the whole Al-Quran Al-Kareem OR a minimum of 15 juz (chapters) on condition to complete the memorization with a teacher in the same IOU Ijazah program. The new 15 chapters will then be reviewed repeatedly until fixed in the memory over 1 or 2 semesters according to the student’s ability to memorize.
- Reciting to the teacher with eyes covered.
- Ability to recite the Quran with tajweed.
- Since this certificate (Ijazah) is the same as the one held by the senior professors, students who wish to gain this honor will have to recite from the memory the majority of the Quranic chapters to confirm that they have reached the level of perfection of memorization, and correct application of tajweed rules.
