As Salaamu alaikum, I have a question. If someone wants to pursue memorizing the Quran, does it have to be done with a teacher/through a hifz program or can it be done at home individually for it to count in the eyes of Allah swt? Meaning is it necessary for one to officially be recognized/certified in the community as “Hafiz” for the hifz to count, or is it okay for a person to just do it on their own and keep it to themselves?
