The angels listening to Usayd ibn Hudayr’s (radiyallahu ‘anhu) recitation of Quran

Question

Is this Hadith authentic?

Narrated Sayyiduna Usayd ibn Hudayr (radiyallahu ‘anhu), that while he was reciting Surah Al Baqarah at night, and his horse was tied beside him, the horse was suddenly startled and troubled.

When he stopped reciting, the horse became quiet, and when he started again, the horse was startled again. Then he stopped reciting and the horse became quiet too. He started reciting again and the horse was startled and troubled once again. Then he stopped reciting and his son, Yahya was beside the horse. He was afraid that the horse might trample on him. When he took the boy away and looked towards the sky, he could not see it.

The next morning he informed Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) who said, “[You should have continued to] Recite, O Ibn Hudayr! [You should have continued to] Recite, O Ibn Hudayr!”

Usayd ibn Hudayr (radiyallahu ‘anhu) replied, “O Allah’s Messenger! My son, Yahya was near the horse and I was afraid that it might trample on him, so I looked towards the sky, and went to him. When I looked at the sky, I saw something like a cloud containing what looked like lamps, so I went out in order not to see it.”

Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said: “Do you know what that was?” Usayd Ibn Hudayr (radiyallahu ‘anhu) replied, “No.” Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said, “Those were angels who came near due to your voice and if you had kept on reciting [till dawn] it would have remained there till morning when people would have seen it [as it would not have disappeared].”
