Qari and Hafiz Mouhamed Hady Toure’s beautiful readings of Sura al Zumar 39:75 and Sura Yusuf 12:23.

Sura al Zumar 39:75

وَتَرَى الْمَلَائِكَةَ حَافِّينَ مِنْ حَوْلِ الْعَرْشِ يُسَبِّحُونَ بِحَمْدِ رَبِّهِمْ ۖ وَقُضِيَ بَيْنَهُم بِالْحَقِّ وَقِيلَ الْحَمْدُ لِلَّـهِ رَبِّ الْعَالَمِي

And you shall see the angels encircling the Throne proclaiming the praise of their Lord; and justly the issue shall be decided between them; and it shall be said, “Praise belongs to God, the Lord of all Being.”

Sura Yusuf 12:23

وَرَاوَدَتْهُ الَّتِي هُوَ فِي بَيْتِهَا عَن نَّفْسِهِ وَغَلَّقَتِ الْأَبْوَابَ وَقَالَتْ هَيْتَ لَكَ ۚ قَالَ مَعَاذَ اللَّـهِ ۖ إِنَّهُ رَبِّي أَحْسَنَ مَثْوَايَ ۖ إِنَّهُ لَا يُفْلِحُ الظَّالِمُونَ

Now the woman in whose house he was solicited him, and closed the doors on them. “Come,” she said, “take me!” “God be my refuge,” he said. “Surely my lord has given me a goodly lodging. Surely the evildoers do not prosper.”

A Note on Variant Readings

Regarding Sura Yusuf 12:23, Abu Dawud reports:

حَدَّثَنَا أَبُو مَعْمَرٍ عَبْدُ اللَّهِ بْنُ عَمْرِو بْنِ أَبِي الْحَجَّاجِ الْمِنْقَرِيُّ، حَدَّثَنَا عَبْدُ الْوَارِثِ، حَدَّثَنَا شَيْبَانُ، عَنِ الأَعْمَشِ، عَنْ شَقِيقٍ، عَنِ ابْنِ مَسْعُودٍ، أَنَّهُ قَرَأَ ‏{‏ هَيْتَ لَكَ ‏}‏ فَقَالَ شَقِيقٌ إِنَّا نَقْرَؤُهَا ‏{‏ هِئْتُ لَكَ ‏}‏ يَعْنِي فَقَالَ ابْنُ مَسْعُودٍ أَقْرَؤُهَا كَمَا عُلِّمْتُ أَحَبُّ إِلَىَّ ‏.

From Abu Mu‘mar Abd Allah ibn Amr ibn Abi al Hajjaj al Munqari, from Abd al Warith, from Shayban, from Al A‘mash, from Shaqiq, from [Abd Allah] ibn Mas‘ud that he read “Come now, you!” (hayta laka). Shaqiq said: We read it “I am ready for you” (hi’tu laka). Ibn Mas‘ud said: We read it as we have been taught it. It is dearer to us. (Kitab al Huruf wa al Qira‘at)
