    Accidentally ate food with alchohol in it. Are my prayers now invalid?

    Report bad ads?

    Assalamu Alaikum, my muslim brothers and sisters.

    It's me again..

    A few days ago I prepared, served to other people, and then ate it myself, a certain dish. However, today I learned that one of the ingredients I used has a high amount of khamr (wine) in it.
    I've already repented and asked Allah for forgiveness. And I feel terrible for what I've done, knowing that I've let down my Lord.
    Now, I've been told various times that the one who drinks alchohol has his prayers refused for 40 days. Is there salvation for my case? Please - I already feel so overwhelmed when I miss the call for prayer even by a minute. I can't go through 40 days without praying.

    I would really appreciate your help.

    Well, it's my fault anyway for having posted this question in a 'no-fatwa' forum.

    I'll go over to Islam q&a.

    May the peace of Allah, azawajjal, be with whoever reads this.

    Please see the following fatwa: Accidental Mistake - IslamQA

    Question: As-salam Alaykum, If someone accidentally consumed alcohol through ignorance such as eating Dijon mustard without knowing it was made with alcohol, do the 40 days apply to them as well? Would it be impermissible for someone to pray behind them?

    Answer: Wa ‘alaykum assalam wa rahmatullah wa barakatuh.

    I pray you are well.

    No, it wouldn’t apply to them; the wording of the hadith about their prayer not being accepted seems to imply that it is referring to a deliberate act.

    It would also be permissible for someone to pray behind them; the books of fiqh do not mention not having consumed wine for forty days as a condition of being an imam. (Shurunbulali, Maraqi al Falah).

    Mistakes Are Overlooked

    The Messenger of Allah, Allah bless him and give him peace, said, “Allah has overlooked for my umma mistakes, forgetfulness, and what they are coerced to do.” (Ibn Majah)

    In any case, the hadith about the prayer not being accepted for only applies to someone who does not repent from that deed. The Messenger of Allah, Allah bless him and grant him peace, said, “Whoever drinks wine none of his prayers will be accepted for forty days. If he repents Allah will accept his repentance…” (Tirmidhi).

    Also, it’s worth noting that not all types of Dijon mustard have wine in it. Some have vinegar as an ingredient, which is permissible.

    May Allah grant you the best of both worlds.

    Aoa..why make religion difficult for urself. Everything in islam is based on ones intentions.did u intentionally consume such an item?no! Then no need to fixate over it .when we get into nitty grittys of religion we begin to make things difficult for ourselves. What if u asked a maulana of the local mosque and he is not well read in islamic jurisprudence and shariha and he had told u that ur prayers are invalid for forty days? What then?

    Assalamu Alaikum,

    Just for future reference, if someone ingests alcohol purposely, it does not mean he has to stop praying for 40 days. Allah will reject that person's prayers for 40 days, so that means he will still have to pray but they will not carry the reward.
