<QoQ QaQ> is fine for using a verb as an adjective. 

However, <'Ij> is defined as "listen" rather than "listen to", so it really
cannot take an object. Instead, use <Qoy>. This is difficult for English
speakers, since we are so used to the phrase "listen to", but Klingon just
doesn't work this way.
