Hadith Explanation

Roosters See Angels

The Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “If you hear the crowing of the rooster, then ask Allah of His Bounty, for it has seen an angel. And if you hear the braying of a donkey, then seek refuge with Allah from the Shaytaan, for it has seen a devil.” [Bukhari]

Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) loves being asked and though we are entirely dependent on him we tend to forget in the busy routine of living to make Duas. Thus, the rooster’s crow can function as a reminder for us to specially ask Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) for His continued favours; and the braying of donkeys and barking of dogs can be our alarm clocks to wake us up to seeking Allah’s protection.
