I was wondering why do Qaris get the independence of adding extra texts to 12:23 of the noble Quran? I am adding a link to Qari Abdul Basit's recitation. https://youtu.be/kBII2vQ4aNU?t=127 Timestamp [2:07]

    And what is this extra text? – Medi1Saif Oct 21 '19 at 7:25
  • @Medi1Saif The repeating part is this قَالَتْ هَيْتَ لَكَ – ti.jaheed Oct 21 '19 at 11:56
  • @UmH I'm afraid that I'm not convinced. Because that part was being recited differently maybe four times. Firstly, I noticed the issue from Hady Toure's recitation which checked and thought there might be another ayaah which I don't know of. But now I'm sure that it's 12:23. Still waiting on a proper explanation. Check out Hady Toure's recitation youtube.com/watch?v=pp6Z0-WkC4k – ti.jaheed Oct 21 '19 at 11:58
  • Thanks for the tips @UmH and I seek excuse for I'm new on this platform. Hady Toure's timestamp is [9:26] and I have added Basit's in the question. Could you be explaining why wouldn't repeating a/two word(s) differently be adding extra text? – ti.jaheed Oct 21 '19 at 19:23

In your given video from 1:15 to 1:43 and 2:04 to 2:20, the Qari Abdul Basit repeats part of the ayah of Surah Yusuf in different recitations:

  • The recitation of Nafi', Abu Jafar and Shaybah:

    enter image description here

    وقرأ أبو جعفر وشيبة ونافع" وَقَالَتْ هِيتَ لَكَ" بكسر الهاء وفتح التاء

    Tafsir al-Qurtubi

    وقرأ أهل المدينة والشام: «هِيتَ» بكسر الهاء وفتح التاء

    Tafsir al-Baghawy

  • The recitation of Ibn Kathir:

    enter image description here

    وقرأ أبو عبد الرحمن السلمي وابن كثير" هَيْتُ لَكَ" بفتح الهاء وضم التاء

    Tafsir al-Qurtubi

    وقرأ ابن كثير: «هَيْتُ» بفتح الهاء وضم التاء

    Tafsir al-Baghawy

  • The recitation of 'Asim, Abu 'Amr, Hamzah and Kisa'i

    enter image description here

    وهذه القراءة بفتح التاء والهاء هي الصحيحة من قراءة ابن عباس وسعيد بن جبير والحسن ومجاهد وعكرمة، وبها قرأ أبو عمرو بن العلاء وعاصم والأعمش وحمزة والكسائي

    Tafsir al-Qurtubi

    قرأ أهل الكوفة والبصرة: هَيْتَ لَكَ بفتح الهاء والتاء جميعا

    Tafsir al-Baghawy

  • The recitation of Ibn 'Amir:

    enter image description here

    وعن ابن عامر وأهل الشام:" وَقَالَتْ هِئْتَ" بكسر الهاء وبالهمزة وبفتح التاء

    Tafsir al-Qurtubi

These are valid recitations, they go back to a Sahabi, to the Prophet Muhammad ﷺ, to Gabriel (عليه السلام). They are not "extra texts" which have been "added" by Abdul Basit on his own.

Refer to What are the readings (qira'at) of Quran? etc.

    I'd like to point at the fact that doing this during a prayer would be considered as makruh as one should stuck to one riwaya. – Medi1Saif Oct 22 '19 at 9:31
  • @Medi1Saif Although he isn't doing so during prayer. Seems like a recitation front of an audience. – UmH Oct 22 '19 at 9:44

    I never doubted that there would be such a recitation during a prayer. I just wanted to point at this special case. – Medi1Saif Oct 24 '19 at 8:52
  • I understand it's a minute difference, but are you saying there are slight variations in different versions of Quran? – Honey Oct 24 '19 at 17:03
  • Yes there are slight differences in the various Qira'at of the Quran, which have their origin in the seven Ahruf in which the Quran was revealed. – UmH Oct 25 '19 at 6:58
