Will Your Prayer Be Accepted If You Drink Alcohol?

13 December, 2023
Q Is there any saying about a person’s prayer not being accepted for 70 days if this person smokes marijuana or consumes alcohol? Is there any evidence to support this saying?


In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful. 

All praise and thanks are due to Allah, and peace and blessings be upon His Messenger.

In this fatwa:

  1. There is a hadith where Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said that whoever drinks alcohol, his prayer will not be accepted for 40 days, and if he dies he will enter Hellfire. And if he repents, then Allah the Almighty will accept that repentance. .
  2. This does not apply to marijuana, although it is also not allowed in Islam.

Almighty Allah knows best.
