Please clarify the authenticity of the following narration and can we act upon it:

Imam al-Sadiq was quoted as saying: “If one recites Tawasin (The three consecutive Surahs that start with طس, Surahs: 26, 27 and 28) on Friday Eve, he will be a friend of Allah, and will be adjacent to Him and under His grace and support.

Who are the Sabi-un?

Question

I recently came across a verse in the Quran wherein mention of the Sabi-un (الصابئين) were made.
