Alcoholic drinks, gambling, and to hope for help from foretelling are considered Satans excrement. Quran states on this matter as follows:

O you who believe! Intoxicants, games of chance, sacrifices to (anything serving the function of) idols (and at places consecrated for offerings to other than God), and (the pagan practice of) divination by arrows (and similar practices) are a loathsome evil of Satans doing; so turn wholly away from it so that you may prosper (in both worlds). Satan only seeks to provoke enmity and hatred among you by means of intoxicants and games of chance, and to bar you from the remembrance of God and from Prayer. So, then, will you abstain? (Al-Maidah Surah,

In a hadith narrated by Hazrath Aisha, Messenger of God (pbuh) states, All drinks that intoxicate are unlawful (to drink)." (one) And anything, which is done, while consuming alcohol is prohibited.

One cannot perform the prayers while drunken. But there is no verse in the Qur'an which states that the person who drinks alcohol cannot perform prayers for forty days. However, in some hadiths (sayings of the Prophet) there are expressions which say that the believers who drink alcohol or perpetrate other sins will have less reward for worships such as obligatory prayers. Our Prophet encouraged people to be more alert by making such warnings so that they avoid grave sins like alcohol. (Tirmidhi, Ashriba, 1; Ibn Maja, Ashriba, 9; Nasai, Ashriba, 45,49)

Satan only seeks to provoke enmity and hatred among you by means of intoxicants and games of chance, and to bar you from the remembrance of God and from Prayer. So, then, will you abstain? (The Qur'an, Al-Ma'idah Surah, 5:91)

With THIS last verse, alcoholic drinks are categorically and definitely forbidden.
