Pearl of Wisdom

'Anything that you can blame a servant [of Allah] for is his own doing, and whatever you cannot blame him for is Predestination Allah's doing. Allah, the Exalted, will ask the servant, 'Why did you disobey [Me]? Why did you commit sins? Why did you drink wine? Why did you commit adultery?' All of this is the servant's doing. But he will not ask him, 'Why were you sick? Why were you short? Why were you white? Why were you black?' because all of this is Allah's doing.?

Imam Ja'far ibn Muhammad al-Sadiq [as]

Question : #789 Category: Salaat / Prayers
Subject: Acceptance of Prayers
Question: As Salaam Alaikum Wa Rahmutullah Wa Barakatu,

I have been a Muslim for two years now and I have a hard time with the rules concerning foods. I recently had some Turkey Ham and did not research the company to see if it was halal. I was just told that if you consume haram meats that your prayers/supplications will not be answered for 40 days. I thought that only applied to alcohol, drugs, gambling, etc. If I knew that my prayers/supplications wouldn't be answered for 40 days I would have definitely reconsidered eating that meat. My questions are:

1. Do I fall into the category of Ignorant?
2. Were my prayers/supplications not accepted?
3. Do I need to make up my prayers for the 40 days?

Thank you for taking the time to answer my questions.

Jazakallah Khair
