Can a person without a beard give jammat


Aslaam walkium may Allah give Mawlana Sheikh Nazim, Mawlana Sheikh Hisham Kabbani and eShaykh team long live.

Can a person without a beard give jammat at home or at the masjid? Meaning everybody will pray behind him or does he have to have a beard. Sayyidi I need to know fast because Ramadhan is approaching


wa `alaykum salam,

Praying behind a person without a beard is valid. To have a beard is not mandatory for leading Salat. However, most scholars regard shaving the beard as a sinful or disliked act.
