Q. I have owls living around my house. Is it good or bad?
A. In Islam, an owl is not considered to be a bad omen as was understood in the past.
Rasoolullah Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam said:
There is no Hammah (bad omen from owls) (Bukhari)
Hence, there is no harm in owls living around ones house.
Allah Ta’ala Knows Best
