The Prophet of Islam (PBUH) said, “White rooster is dear to me, and
those hostile towards it are hostile towards God; this bird guards his
owner’s house and the houses of seven of the neighbors on each side.”
Prophet PBUH kept it inside the house during the nights.
Imam Sadeq (PBUH) said, “All the prophets kept pigeons within their
houses, because idiots of the gene race annoy children; but if pigeons
are kept within the house, they will play with the birds and avoid
disturbing family members.”
