Summary: The ijazah in the Holy Quran is a certification that recognizes that the bearer has recited the Holy Quran from start to finish with complete application of the rules of tajwid and authorizes its bearer to teach and pass on the same ijazah in turn. Through this program students will work individually with their instructors to memorize and recite the Holy Quran from start to finish. 

Course Requirements: Students are expected to be present at scheduled meeting times and recite the assigned amount with a Ribaat tajwid teacher. While students will begin this journey online (through Skype, FaceTime, or other apps), they will be required to travel periodically to Milwaukee, Wisconsin to complete the final stages of recitation in person.
