Female doing hifz of the Quraan by listening to the recitation of a male reciter

Q: I asked a question about a female doing hifz of Quran by listening to the audio of a male reciter and also asked about the recitation of Mishary al Afasi. You told me that it is better for a female not to listen to a male reciter.

I wanted to say that, without listening to any tilawat, it seems really hard to keep the verses in my memory. So, will it be permissible for me as a woman, to memorize the surahs with the help of the audio of a male reciter?

A: Try and listen to someone who has got a plain recitation and guard your heart by ensuring that you don't take any sensual pleasure when listening.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
