Translation

Behold, We turned towards thee a company of Jinns (quietly) listening to the Qur'an: when they stood in the presence thereof, they said, "Listen in silence!" When the (reading) was finished, they returned to their people, to warn (them of their sins).

Tafsir

And, mention, when We sent a company of jinn your way - the jinn of Naseebeen in Yemen, or the jinn of Nineveh, who were seven or nine, [and this was] while the Prophet may peace and salutation be upon him was leading the dawn prayer with some of his Companions at Batn Nakhla, as reported by the two Shaykhs [al-Bukhaaree and Muslim] - to listen to Al-Qur'an and, when they were in its presence, they said, that is, they said to one another: 'Listen carefully!', concentrate in order to hear it [carefully]. Then, when it was finished, [when] he was finished reciting it, they went back to their people to warn [them], to threaten their people with the chastisement [from God] if they do not believe - they had been Jews, but then become Muslims.
