I live with My Family and Their Income is from Unlawful Means
Question:

I am a young unemployed Muslim man and my family pays for my food and drink from unlawful sources, is my prayer acceptable or not?
Answer:

It is not permissible for you to eat, drink or be supported by money obtained from unlawful sources Allah the Most High says:And whosoever fears Allaah and keeps his duty to Him, He will make a way for to get out (from every difficulty). And He will provide him from (sources) he never could imagine. [1] But there is no effect from this upon your prayers, indeed, they are correct.

[1] At-Talaq 65:2-3.
