    Question What do u call someone who has finished the Quran?

    Assalaamu Alaikum

    When someone finishes Hajj, he/she is called Haji (though it is not to be used as a show-off). When someone leads the Salat, he is called Imam.
    So, if someone finishes reading (not memorizing) the Quran thrice, is he/she given any title?
    Also, a Hafiz is one who memorizes the Quran. So, what do we call someone (non-Arab) who memorizes the Quran "with" meaning?
    (Though they can all be called "Muslim who is doing his job")

    The first person I would call Al-Tilawati.

    The second person Al Man'i Al Qurani.

    I just made those up.

    Most generous of mankind, I have no one to take refuge in,
    Except you at the occurrence of widespread calamity.

    When you complete one reading its usually called a "khattam" but amazingly noone in the subcontinent has yet come up with a worthy title...
