She has received a marriage proposal from someone who drinks alcohol

Question

Is it sinful to accept a proposal for marriage from a Muslim man who consumes alcohol on a social basis. I detest alcohol and think it is the root of all evil, but I have been approached with this proposal, but am hesitant because of this issue. Please advise.

Answer

Praise be to Allaah.

Shaykh ‘Abd-Allaah ibn Qa’ood answered this question for us and said:

It is better not to marry him, but if she does marry him, that is permissible.
