Smoking marijuana and taking recreational drugs

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: Does smoking marijuana also cause all ibaadat to not be accepted for 40 days like alcohol? Does the same apply to recreational drugs like ecstasy and lsd?


A: Apparently, the law will be the same as both are intoxicants.

If the element of intoxication is found it will be the same.

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