A decree has been issued by Undersecretary of the Ministry Farid Emadi which stipulates the acceptance of preaching orders in women’s prayer halls, that the applicant must have a university legal qualification, and that she must memorize at least three parts of the Holy Quran with the recitation and pass the personal interview.
