Q: I want to know something about drugs. I will be leading taraweeh for the first time this year. Unfortunately, I am in the grasp of drugs. Is it true that if I take them within 40 days of Ramadhaan, the taraweeh I lead will not count?
Also, does this apply to drugs other than marijuana, like molly, cocaine, and lsd?
Please take into account that I am trying to stop, but slowly as the withdrawal effect is immensely strong.
Keep trying. May Allah Ta`ala help you.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
