Answer

(Fatwa: 1165/670/D=1432)

On what basis they are opposing? If the imam is able to recite the holy Quran correctly along with fulfilling all other conditions, then his imamah is alright. It is not a condition for the imam to be Hafiz, only it is better.

Allah (Subhana Wa Ta’ala) knows Best

Darul Ifta,
Darul Uloom Deoband

This answer was collected from the official ifta website of Darul Uloom Deoband in India.
