Salaah of a person who shaves his beard

Q: My son shaves his face fully due to his job, so does his prayers get invalid.


A: Shaving the beard is a major sin. Though he will be absolved of the obligation of the Salaah, he will not receive the full reward and benefit of the Salaah he performs without a beard.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
