AM I ALLOWED TO READ NAMAAZ BEHIND A PERSON WHO SHAVES HIS BEARD AND EYEBROW

Answer
Bismillah

Al-jawab billahi at-taufeeq (the answer with Allah’s guidance)

1) For Muslim males to grow a beard is Waajib (compulsory), and to let it grow a fist length is Waajib. Without any Sharee reason to cut or shave is Haraam (totally prohibited). He who does so is a Faasiq (sinner) and to shorten it less than a fist length is Makruh Tahrimi (near Haraam).’ (Dari Aur Ambiyaa Ki Sunnate, Mufti Saeed Palanpuri).

If a Faasiq person (one who openly violates the Laws of Allah Ta’ala e.g. shaving the beard, etc.) leads the Salaat, his Imaamat will be Makrooh-e-Tahrimi (close to Haraam).

However, following such an Imaam does not invalidate the Salaat and does not necessitate to repeat the Salaat.

2) It will be Makrooh to appoint a person who is guilty of this accursed practice (shaving eyebrows) to lead the Salaah.

And Only Allah Ta’ala Knows Best.
