Bismillah.

Chapter: The mention of Jinn, their reward and retribution

Volume 4, Book 54, Number 517 :
Narrated by Abdur-Rahman bin Abdullah bin Abdur-Rahman bin Abi Sasaa Ansari

That Abu Said Al-Khudri (radiallaahu `anhu) said to his father. “I see you are fond of sheep and the desert, so when you want to pronounce the Adhan, raise your voice with it for whoever will hear the Adhan whether a human being, or a Jinn, or anything else, will bear witness, in favor on the Day of Resurrection.” Abu Said added, “I have heard this from Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam).”

Chapter: The Statement of Allah Jal Jalaaluhu: “And when We sent towards you a group of the jinn…”
Chapter: The Statement of Allah Taa’la: “… And the moving creatures of all kinds that He has scattered therein…”
Volume 4, Book 54, Number 518 :

Narrated by Ibn Umar (radiallaahu `anhu)
That he heard the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) delivering a sermon on the pulpit saying, “Kill snakes and kill Dhu-at-Tufyatain (i.e. a snake with two white lines on its back) and al-Abtar (i.e. a snake with short or mutilated tail) for they destroy the sight of one’s eyes and bring about abortion.”
(‘Abdullah bin ‘Umar further added): Once while I was chasing a snake in order, to kill it, Abu Lubaba called me saying: “Don’t kill it,” I said. “Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) ordered us to kill snakes.” He said, “But later on he prohibited the killing of snakes living in the houses.” (Az-Zubri said. “Such snakes are called Al-Awamir.”)

Snakes living in houses could be jinns so the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) instructed us to warn them for three days and then kill them if they don’t leave. Snakes outside houses may be killed on sight. Read more here.

Chapter: The best property of a Muslim will be sheep

Volume 4, Book 54, Number 519 :
Narrated by Abu Said al-Khudri (radiallaahu `anhu)
Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) said, “There will come a time when the best property of a man will be sheep which he will graze on the tops of mountains and the places where rain falls (i.e. pastures) escaping to protect his religion from afflictions.”

Volume 4, Book 54, Number 520 :
Narrated by Abu Huraira (radiallaahu `anhu)
Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) said, “The main source of disbelief is in the east. Pride and arrogance are characteristics of the owners of horses and camels, and those bedouins who are busy with their camels and pay no attention to Religion; while modesty and gentleness are the characteristics of the owners of sheep.”

Volume 4, Book 54, Number 521 :
Narrated by ‘Uqba bin ‘Umar and Abu Mas’ud (radiallaahu `anhumaa)
Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) pointed with his hand towards Yemen and said, “True Belief is Yemenite yonder (i.e. the Yemenites had True Belief and embraced Islam readily), but sternness and mercilessness are the qualities of those who are busy with their camels and pay no attention to the Religion. Where the two sides of the head of Satan will appear, such qualities belong to the tribe of Rabi’a and Mudar.”

These ahadith point to the virtues of owning and herding sheep. Every Prophet was a shepherd by the will of Allah. It teaches a person leadership, instills attributes of caring and looking after others and encourages contemplation on Allah’s creation as he’s out looking after the herd while they graze more than once a day.

Volume 4, Book 54, Number 522 :
Narrated by Abu Huraira (radiallaahu `anhu)
The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) said, “When you hear the crowing of cocks, ask for Allah’s Blessings for (their crowing indicates that) they have seen an angel. And when you hear the braying of donkeys, seek Refuge with Allah from Satan for (their braying indicates) that they have seen a Satan.”

Volume 4, Book 54, Number 523 :
Narrated by Jabir bin Abdullah (radiallaahu `anhu)
Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) said, “When night falls (or it is evening), keep your children close to you for the devils spread out at that time. But when an hour of the night elapses, you can let them free. Close the doors and mention the Name of Allah, for Satan does not open a closed door.”

Volume 4, Book 54, Number 524 :
Narrated by Abu Huraira (radiallaahu `anhu)
The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) said, “A group of Israelites were lost. Nobody knows what they did. But I do not see them except that they were cursed and changed into rats, for if you put the milk of a she-camel in front of a rat, it will not drink it*, but if the milk of a sheep is put in front of it, it will drink it.” I told this to Ka’b who asked me, “Did you hear it from the Prophet ?” I said, “Yes.” Ka’b asked me the same question several times. I said to Ka’b. “Do I read the Torah? (i.e. I tell you this from the Prophet.)”

*Camels were haraam for the Bani Israel hence they refused to drink their milk.

Jinns Listen to the Qur’an (Hadith No. 740)

Salam,
Bismillah.

Volume 1, Book 12, Number 740:

Narrated Ibn ‘Abbas:

The Prophet set out with the intention of going to Suq ‘Ukaz (market of ‘Ukaz) along with some of his companions. At the same time, a barrier was put between the devils and the news of heaven. Fire commenced to be thrown at them. The Devils went to their people, who asked them, “What is wrong with you?” They said, “A barrier has been placed between us and the news of heaven. And fire has been thrown at us.” They said, “The thing which has put a barrier between you and the news of heaven must be something which has happened recently. Go eastward and westward and see what has put a barrier between you and the news of heaven.” Those who went towards Tuhama came across the Prophet at a place called Nakhla and it was on the way to Suq ‘Ukaz and the Prophet was offering the Fajr prayer with his companions. When they heard the Qur’an they listened to it and said, “By Allah, this is the thing which has put a barrier between us and the news of heaven.” They went to their people and said, “O our people; verily we have heard a wonderful recital (Qur’an) which shows the true path; we believed in it and would not ascribe partners to our Lord.” Allah revealed the following verses to his Prophet (Sura ‘Jinn’) (72): “Say: It has been revealed to me…” And what was revealed to him was the conversation of the Jinns.

Imaam Bukhari mentions this Hadith here because he’s providing evidence for reciting aloud in prayer.

If you’re interested in reading more on this barrier that was put between the Jinns and the news from heaven, read Tafsir of Surah al-Jinn. It’s quite interesting. :)

قُلْ أُوحِىَ إِلَىَّ أَنَّهُ اسْتَمَعَ نَفَرٌ مِّنَ الْجِنِّ فَقَالُواْ إِنَّا سَمِعْنَا قُرْءَانَاً عَجَباً

Wassalam.

That Demon (Hadith No. 450)

Salam,
Bismillah.

Volume 1, Book 8, Number 450:

Narrated Abu Huraira:

“The Prophet said, “Last night a big demon (ifreet) from the Jinns came to me and wanted to interrupt my prayers (or said something similar) but Allah enabled me to overpower him. I wanted to fasten him to one of the pillars of the mosque so that all of you could see him in the morning but I remembered the statement of my brother Solomon (as stated in Quran): My Lord! Forgive me and bestow on me a kingdom such as shall not belong to anybody after me (38.35).” The sub narrator Rauh said, “He (the demon) was dismissed humiliated.”

Prophets shared a special kind of brotherhood. They respected and helped each other even while living decades away from each other.

And (remember) when Allah took the Covenant of the prophets, saying: “Take whatever I gave you from the Book and Hikmah (understanding of the Laws of Allah), and afterwards there will come to you a Messenger (Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم) confirming what is with you; you must, then, believe in him and help him.” Allah said: “Do you agree (to it) and will you take up My Covenant (which I conclude with you)?” They said: “We agree.” He said: “Then bear witness; and I am with you among the witnesses (for this).” [Aal-Imran: 83]

Because of this respect for his brother Sulaiman (AS) and the dua he had made, Muhammad (SAW) let that demon go. Otherwise we might have had an interesting story to tell about that demon today.

Also, take note that it is not only Shaytan that interrupts your prayer. Iblees has forces among the jinn and men as well who aid him in his cause. Evil among the jinns and humans disturb you during your Salah and de-track you from the Straight Path. Have you taken your precautions? (Hint: understand the meaning of Surah an-Naas.)

Wassalam.
