forty days

Shafi'i Fiqh

Is the Hadith that the Prayer of the one who Drinks Wine isn`t Accepted for Forty Days Authentic?

There is a person who performs the prescribed prayers on their times, but commits the sin of drinking wine once every month or two. In fact he doesn`t get drunk, yet there is a Sharia maxim that says: "If a large amount of anything causes intoxication, a small amount of it is prohibited.” The Hadith in which it is stated (Allah will not accept his Salah/prayer for forty days), should this person wait for forty days then resume the prescribed daily prayers because after he drinks he longs for the prayer but when remembers this Hadith, he abstains from performing it?

Taking non veg capsule for obesity and question regarding my mothers iddah!

1st Issue:

I suffer from several health issues such as asthma, high blood pressure, obstructive sleep apnoea and a few others. Above all obesity! I was offered the weight loss operation but due to covid etc this has been delayed for over 2 years now. Now Dr’s are saying that they will have to re-refer which may be another year or 2, so as a bit of help they have prescribed me with tablets which help aid weight loss as it can be dangerous due to my sleep apnoea, however these capsules contain gelatine and are not suitable for vegetarians. Is it permissible for me to take these as there is no other option? I had asked the pharmacist for a veg option but till date apparently this has not been manufactured. I have tried many many diets but i don’t tend to keep my weight down.

2nd Issue:

I work in a different state in India but due to lockdown i came back to my hometown and lived with my parents. My father passed away 1 month ago and the community in my area force us to take part in bidah, they said that my fathers rooh does not leave the house for 40 days and during this time i have to feed many many fakeer, buy the imam new cloths and shoes, buy many utensils, footwear etc and distribute! All this is getting very disturbing for me and my mother, the community are not leaving us in peace and no matter what we say it is proving difficult to avoid these people.
My mother is 62 years old and currently in her iddat and we been advised she can not move from here till her 4 months and 10 days are over.
We need to get out of this atmosphere as it is mentally very draining and i also feel like we are committing sin.
Question: Can i move my mother to another state where my work is during her iddah? She will be fully covered and get there and will continue? Also i have planned and my application is already with the home office to come to the UK to get married, this was before my father passed away.
Question: Do you know what the 40 day rule is about? Is there such a thing?
This is getting very difficult and unbearable. Any advise would be good pls.
JazakAllah

Combining prayers during twilight

السلام عليكم و رحمة الله و بركاته

Pray and Hope you are in the best of health.

Will it be Makrooh to pray Salaah-tul-Esha on its own for a day after praying Salaah-tul-Maghrib and Salaah-tul-Esha together consecutively for many days (due to no valid Esha Shari’ time in the summer)?

جزاك الله خيرا
