As salaam u alaikum
. Dear mufti saheb
I was travelling through Empangeni, Kwa Zulu Natal two Fridays ago and the Aalim that performed the Jummah Bayaan, Khutbah and Namaaz clearly had a shortened and trimmed beard. I enquired from the local people who informed me that he is an Aalim. They also informed me that the trustees and imaam are all aware of this and have done nothing about it.
I was a traveller and wanted to find what will be the the status of my salaah?
