Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by
I am working in a private company where wakti salah is facilitated in a separate room. One of our senior official colleague leading as imam of our wakti salah, but as a professional he is kept company accounts naturally he need to calculated banking riba. Besides he designated to prepared & submitted report to others govt or relevant organization where some time required fill-up false information .Even some time he made bad comments of other people who is related with his occupation/jobs. My question is: is there any problem in the Islamic Shariah for salah behind him. I put the same question to a khatib of my mohalla masque but he answered you can continue salah behind him. Would you please clarify on the light of Quran and Sunnah with authentic references?

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

You can perform salah behind him. Whatever you mentioned about him is not very clear and it will not invite any kind of harsh ruling against him. However, if there is any other person available who knows the rulings of salah, follows sunnah and avoids sins should be made imam so that there is no deficiency creeps in salah.

Allah knows Best!
