Angel’s presence at the crowing of a rooster?

Question and Answer:
Q. I have heard that when the rooster crows, it means that angels are around. Is this true? Jazak ALLAH

(Query published as received)

A. Yes, this is true, it is mentioned in the Hadith and Dua is encouraged during these moments. Sayyiduna Abu Hurayrah (Radiyallahu Anhu) reports that Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said: “When you hear the crow of the rooster, then take advantage of Allah’s grace and ask Him for the rooster has sighted an angel. And when you hear a donkey bray, ask Allah for protection for it has seen a shaitaan” (Sahih Muslim, Hadith #: 2729)
