Memorizing a Surah and imagining one is reciting it in front of people

Q: Someone is trying to memorize Surah Yaseen and recite it like Omar Hisham al Arabi. But when she try's to recite it, she imagines that shes doing it in front of people and imagines that she will recite to others later. She feels sad thinking that she can't focus on the fact that it should be only for Allah.

Should she stop memorizing? Should she take an oath that she will never recite "like that" in front of people? She also thought that she would recite beautifuly like that in front of her future husband. Is there any duaa for this?

A: She must continue memorising and focus on the fact that Allah Ta`ala has commanded her to recite and she is reciting to Allah.

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