    Title: Muadhin without a fist length beard

    Question: In my mosque, the muazzin does not have a fist length beard. Is he allowed to give the adhan? What if he has a fist length beard but he smokes in public?

    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    (Fatwa: 669/552/B=05/1435) If he cuts his beard then his azan is makrooh tahrimi. However, merely by smoking cigarette his azan shall not be makrooh tahrimi. قال فى الدر المختار : يكره أذان جنب واقامته ..... وفاسق ولو عالماً . (الدر المختار 2/60)
