Performing Salaah behind an Imaam that trims his beard

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: I was travelling through a certain town 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 out what will be the status of my Salaah?

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