I would like to get the Fatwa of the following as:
1- Leading the prayer (Imam) without beard is allowable? If, not then how many schools of thoughts (Hanafi, Shafi, Malaki, Hambli) disqualify it?
2- Also, what if the Imam is a Hafiz (without beard) then is he allowed leading the prayer while the people behind him have beards but no Hafiz?
3- Also, is the Imam required to cover his head while praying?
الجواب وبالله التوفيق
واللہ اعلم بالصواب
