Animals fear the occurence of Qiyamah every Friday

What is the authenticity of the Hadith which states that every Friday, animals are alert out of fear that it could be Qiyamah on that day except Man and Jinn?


This is part of a lengthy narration reported on the authority of Sayyiduna Abu Hurayrah (radiyallahu ‘anhu). The part you question is as follows:

“Every Friday from sunrise to sunset, animals are alert fearing the fact that, that day could be Qiyamah except Man and Jinn”

(Sunan Abi Dawud, Hadith: 1039 .Declared Authentic by Imam Ibn Hibban -Al Ihsan, Hadith: 2772-, Imam Hakim, -Mustadrak, vol. 1 pg. 278/9- and Hafiz Dhahabi concurs)

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
