Appointing a clean shaven person to give Azaan

Q: What is the shariah rulings in light of (the Quraan and Hadiths) of appointing someone a مؤذن‎‎, (mu’aḏḏin) or someone is regularly call to
prayer (adhan) who is clean-shaven (without any beard)? To my little understanding a clean shaven person fasiq? Am I correct in my assertion?


A: Such a person should not be appointed to call out the Azaan.

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