    Question to get permission from / of

    Should one say 'to get permission from' or 'to get permission of'?

    "I got permission of my father to buy a book
    or
    "I got permission from my father to buy a book"

    As they're written, only the second one is right, but if you added a 'the' in front of 'permission' in the first sentence, both would be correct.
