What to say if one hears sound of a Cock or Barking of a Donkey?

Allah’s Messenger SallAllahu Alaihi Wasallam said:

Translation of Meaning: “If you hear the sound of cock, ask Allah’s bounty saying this supplication:

« اللهُمَّ إِنِّي أَسْأَلُكَ مِنْ فَضْلِكَ»

Allahumma innee as’aloka min fadh’lik.

(O Allah, I ask You of Your bounty)

This is because it has seen an angel.

And when you hear the sound of a donkey, say:

« أَعُوذُ بِاللَّهِ مِنَ الشَّيْطَانِ الرَّجِيمِ»

Aauzu billahe menas shaitanir rajeem.

“I seek refuge with Allah from the Accursed Shaitan.”

This is because it has seen Shaitan. (Bukhari, Muslim)
