Salaah of a person who is intoxicated

Q: A drunk/intoxicated person read salaah. Will it be accepted? Will he get reward?



1. Salaah is not valid in the state of intoxication. After one becomes sober, the Salaah will have to be repeated.

2. When the Salaah is not valid, how can one receive any reward?

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
