An Imaam Who Wears His Garments Below His Ankles

Question

What is the status of an Imaam who wears his garments below his ankles?

Answer

This should be brought to the attention of the Imaam as it is possible that the Imaam is unaware of his action. However if the Imaam continues wearing his garment below the ankle intentionally after being informed then he will be termed as a Faasiq and his Imaamat is Makrooh-e-Tahreemi.
