وَإِذۡ صَرَفۡنَآ إِلَيۡكَ نَفَرًا مِّنَ ٱلۡجِنِّ يَسۡتَمِعُونَ ٱلۡقُرۡءَانَ فَلَمَّا حَضَرُوهُ قَالُوٓاْ أَنصِتُواْ ۖ فَلَمَّا قُضِىَ وَلَّوۡاْ إِلَىٰ قَوۡمِهِم مُّنذِرِينَ
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).<br/>
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.
