Du’a when a rooster crows

Du’a when a rooster crows


Is there a Hadith which states that du’a made when a rooster crows is accepted?




I have not come across these exact words in a Hadith.


Imam Bukhari and Imam Muslim (rahimahumallah) have recorded the following narration regarding du’a when a rooster crows:

Sayyiduna Abu Hurayrah (radiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said, “When you hear a rooster crow, then ask Allah for His bounty, for it has seen an Angel…”


(Sahih Bukhari, Hadith: 3303 and Sahih Muslim, Hadith: 2729)


Qadi ‘Iyad (rahimahullah) explains, ‘It is hoped that the Angels say Amin to the du’a of this person’ [Therefore we are encourages to make du’a at this time].

(Refer: Fathul Bari, under Hadith: 3303, vol. 6 pg. 353)


Insha Allah, if a person makes other du’as as well, The Angels will also say Amin.




And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
