Ask an Alim

Having Alcohol just for its taste, will my prayers not be accepted for 40 days?


I drink alcohol just for taste and I don’t get drunk, will my prayers not be accepted for forty days?


Waalykum salam
Thank you for your question

Alcohol is Haram. Whether you get drunk or not.
It entails a lot of issues including your salah being rejected.

One of the main sin would be to go against Allah (az)’s order. The one who gave you existence, surrounded you with blessings, gave you freedom of choice, and will ask you to leave and go back to HIMSELF, where you’re answerable..
wonder how worth this could be!?

InshaAllah Allah forgives us all and we are able to understand his authority over ours
