Animals See the Unseen

According to various narrations of the Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him), dogs & donkeys have the ability to see the shaytan and roosters have the ability to see the angels:

“When you hear the crowing of a rooster, ask Allah of His bounty, for he has seen an angel.” Narrated by al-Bukhari, 2304; Muslim, 2729.

I think I’m going to raise a rooster in my backyard so it can have my own automatic Angel detector.

“When you hear the barking of dogs and the braying of donkeys at night, seek refuge in Allah, for they see which you do not see.” (al-Adam al-Mufrad by Imam Bukhari)

I’ll know to start reciting ayat-ul-kursi when I hear my neighbor’s dog bark now.

Does anyone else know of any other narrations regarding other animals with the ability to see the unseen?

  1. i don’t have a prophetic narration .. but my gramps says he saw a cow look into a grave and cry while he was in guyana!!

  2. Yes, dogs bark when they see the Jinns. Jinns love to go out and do their stuff at night, so that’s why you hear dogs barking (for no physical reason) at night. My neighbors dogs always bark during the night in the summer.

  3. anonymoose,

    you claim to not flame yet you insult the beliefs as “crao”. You could have chosen better wording. Nonetheless, the narrations are from the Prophet of Islam, whom God sent to guide mankind, and anything he has said is always the truth, thus people believe in the above.

  4. My chinese astrological sign is a rooster. I see thousands of angels at work, flying thru
    the air via the internet. I live alone with dogs and horses for protection, so that the
    american government doesn’t kill me because I am destroying their terroristic plot over the world, by showing everyone the TRUTH. It may not be a prophetic narration, but its the reality in my life.
