Being intimate with one’s husband who consumes alcohol

Q: If my husband drinks alcohol and then becomes intimate, do I become impure or my mouth becomes impure due to saliva touching me after consuming alcohol? Please help.


A: If there are no traces of alcohol in his mouth, you will not become impure.

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