Abu Dawud Book 36, Hadith Number 5085.

Chapter : Not known.

Narated By Ali ibn Umar ibn Husayn ibn Ali : The Apostle of Allah (PBUH) as saying: Do not go out much when there are few people about, for Allah the Exalted scatters abroad of His beasts in that hour (according to Ibn Marwan’s version).

Ibn Marwan’s version has: For Allah has creatures. He then mentioned the barking of dogs and braying of asses in a similar manner. He added in his version: Ibn al-Had said: Shurahbil ibn al-Hajib told me on the authority of Jabir ibn Abdullah from the Apostle of Allah (PBUH) similar to it.
