Smoking weed

Q: My brother has smoked weed and me and my family are very worried, will this mean his duas won’t be accepted for 40 days?

What is the ruling and is weed really bad?



If he sincerely makes taubah and promises never to touch it and go close to it Allah will accept it.

It is forbidden.

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