As-Salaamu 'Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuhu
May Allah grant you a high place for all your efforts and Khidamah you are giving in this beautiful subject.
For acquiring the Ijazah for Hafs should one try and memorize the Jazari Prose. Where can i get that on the net for download (text and sound If possible)?
Also what would you recommend as a syllabus for acquiring the Hafs 'An 'Aasim Cetificate/Ijazah.
Wa alaikum assalaam wa rahmatullalhi wa barakatuh.
Jazakum Allahu khairan for your kind dua’.
Note: each half of line of the poem is repeated
To obtain an ijaazah in Hafs ‘an ‘Aasim, one needs to learn and and memorize the complete Qur’an and understand and apply the proper tajweed rules while reciting to the sheikh/sheikhah giving the ijaazah.
It is recommended to learn the articulation points, noon saakinah, meem saakinah, laam saakinah, mudood, mechanism of producing letters, nabr, the characteristics, and tafkheem and tarqeeq and apply them before doing an intense memorization program. While learning the theory and striving to apply the rules, one can memorize three or four ajzaa’. The Jazariyyah poem can be memorized while learning the tajweed rules. Once these rules are learned and applied, one can start a more rapid memorization program. The remaining tajweed rules not mentioned above should be learned and applied while undergoing the intense memorization program. This doesn't mean that the rest of the rules are not important, but they can be learned and applied while memorizing the rest of the Qur'an.
The most important item is to recite to, and be corrected by a qualified teacher of tajweed continuously from the very beginning, when at all possible. This is the vital tool for correct recitation of the Qur’an. If your recitation is correct and the memorization strong, you can start an ijaazah after you have completed memorization. If the applied tajweed is lacking or the memorization weak, there will need to be training and practice to get it up to the desired level before starting an ijaazah.
May Allah make it easy for you and grant you strong memorization and mastery in tajweed.
Wa assalaam alaikum wa rahmatullah.
