Invocation upon hearing the cock's crow

"Do not revile the rooster for it wakes you up for prayer." [Abu Dawud].

Three voices that are loved by Allah, namely: the voice of the roosters, the voice of one who is reading Qur'an and the voice of the one who calls for forgiveness before the break of day.

Abu Hurairah (may Allah be pleased with him) narrated that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: 'When you hear a rooster crowing, then ask Allah for His bounties, for it has seen an angel, and when you hear a donkey braying, then seek refuge in Allah from Shaitan, for it has seen a Shaitan' [Sahih al-Bukhari, Muslim, Ahmad]

The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said, "Do not revile the rooster for it wakes you up for prayer." [Abu Dawud].

Abu Hurairah [may Allah be pleased with him] narrated that:

The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: “when you hear the crowing of the roosters, then ask Allah of His bounty, for verily they have seen an angel. When you hear the braying of a donkey, then seek refuge in Allah from Shaitan, [the rejected] for, verily, it has seen a Shaitan.” (Jami` at-Tirmidhi )

Though we are entirely dependent on the Almighty Allah 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 favours; and the braying of donkeys can be our alarm clocks to wake us up to seeking Allah’s protection.
