I went to the Messenger of Allaah (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) on the next day and said: Messenger of Allaah, I recited the Qur'an during the night in my enclosure and my horse began to jump. Upon this the Messenger of Allaah (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) said: You should have kept on reciting, Ibn Hudair. He (Ibn Hudair) said: I recited. It jumped (as before).

He (Ibn Hudair) said: (Messenger of Allaah) I finished (the recitation) for Yahya was near (the horse) and I was afraid lest it should trample him. I saw something like a canopy with what seemed to be lamps in it rising up in the sky till it disappeared. Upon this the Messenger of Allaah (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) said: Those were the angels who listened to you; and if you had continued reciting, the people would have seen them in the morning and they would not have concealed themselves from them.
