Narrated Ibn Mas'ud

Dawud reported from Amir who said: I asked Alqamah if Ibn Mas'ud were present with the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) on the night of the Jinn (the night when the Holy Prophet met them). He (Ibn Mas'ud) said: No, but we were in the company of the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) one night and we missed him. We searched for him in the valleys and the hills and said: He has either been taken away (by Jinn) or has been secretly killed. He (the narrator) said: We spent the worst night that people could ever spend. When it was dawn we saw him coming from the side of Hira'. He (the narrator) reported: We said: Messenger of Allah, we missed you and searched for you, but we could not find you and we spent the worst night that people could ever spend. He (the Holy Prophet) said: There came to me petitioner on behalf of the Jinn and I went with him and recited the Qur'an to them. He (the narrator) said: He then went with him and showed us their tracks and the traces of their embers. They (the Jinn) asked him (the Holy Prophet) about their provision and he said: Every bone on which the name of Allah is recited is your provision. The time it falls in your hand it shall be covered with flesh, and the dung of (the camels) is fodder for your animals. The Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) said: Don't perform istinja with these (things) for these are the food of your brothers (Jinn).
