Rooster and Islam and waking me up at night

rooster crowing in daylight

There is a rooster in the house across the road and another one nearby. It crows at ridiculous times of night, like 1:00 am or 3:00 am. It is piercing and wakes us all up often. I wear ear plugs now at night. Even Wikipedia claims that “In a recent USDA study, researchers decided that the crow of the rooster in the morning may have long-term effects on the hearing of infants, whose ears are not yet accustomed to such sounds.”

I was mentioning this to a Kuwaiti, and he said that Muslims believe that roosters can see the good angels whereas donkeys and wolves see the bad angels. Roosters are also not monogamous.

This site claims that “In Islam, the rooster enjoys a particular veneration. The Prophet himself asserts that the white rooster is his friend because it announces the presence of the Angel. Moreover, the Prophet is said to prohibit cursing the rooster, which calls to prayer.”
