Asalamu alaykum, I presently reside in a non muslim area, and the only two masajid close by are owned by the Police and Air force respectively. Its compulsory for anyone in the police or armed forces over here to be clean shaven, so the imams in both masajid are clean shaven force men. I am close to the Police imam and I have learnt a lot from him as he is very knowledgeable and of good character alhamdulillah, but I have also come across fatawa which say a man who shaves is a fasiq and its dislikes or prohibited for him to be an imam, so its not advisable to pray behind him. Well in this situation, judging from the circumstance, would it still be disliked to pray behind such an imam as the only alternative is a masjid which is a bit far but of reachable distance where the imam has a beard, but he is like a tool in the hands of the government, and he even uses the masjid to campaign for elections and insults rival political parties during khutbah. Which of these is a lesser evil?
