What is Ejaza in Arabic Calligraphy?
An Ejaza ( إجازة ) is a traditional and historic teaching system that has been passed from generations from our teachers and master in calligraphy.
It is a continuous chain of masters from Ali Inb Abi Taleb May Allah be pleased upon him up to our current teachers and students.
When you learn from a master in calligraphy you don’t save time only but you learn the correct techniques and tips from an experienced teacher and mentor.
Acquiring an Ejaza takes time and commitments. You start by learning single alphabets, then combined and joining alphabets , making short sentences and paragraphs. after mastering each level your master will grant you the permission to go to the next.
When your master is happy with your quality of calligraphy writing you will be granted an Ejaza to write your name underneath your work and you will be in the chain of masters and you may be granted the permission to teach others.
