Could a person who drinks alcohol perform prayers?

Details of the Question
Could a person who drinks alcohol perform prayers?
The Answer

Dear Brother / Sister,

Allah made performing prayers fard (obligatory) and rendered drinking alcohol haram. While not performing prayers is haram, drinking alcohol is also haram.

Thus, a person who does not perform prayers but drinks alcohol is considered to have committed two kinds of sins. However, if the person who drinks alcohol performs his/her prayers, he is considered to have reduced his/her sin to one and saves himself/herself from the sin of not performing prayers.

In fact, what befits a Muslim is to perform his/her prayers and give up alcohol, which is rendered haram by Allah.
