Assalaamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakaatuhu.
Could you shed some light on the conditions for obtaining an ijaazah according to the ullamaa of Qur’an and is this possible reciting 'nathriyyan' shukran.
assalaamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakaatuhu
Wa alaikum assalaam wa rahmatu Allahi wa barakatuh,
A similar question was asked previously, and the following is a quote from the answer:
The word ijaazah means permit. When applying this word to the recitation of the Qur’an it means there is an authentic chain of transmission from the person back to the Prophet, peace, and this person now is permitted to listen to others and give them an ijaazah. The ijaazah from the early days was always with memorization of the Qur’an, meaning the one who has ijaazah listens to the student recite the whole complete Qur’an from Al-Faatihah until An-Nas, and testifies to the accuracy of their recitation and complete mastery of tajweed. To obtain an ijaazah you need to find someone with an ijaazah, be accepted as a student, then proceed to recite the whole Qur’an over a period of time to them. Although some in this day give ijaazah in tilaawah (reading from the open Qur’an), this is not the original concept of the ijaazah.
Wa alaikum assalaam wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh.
