Imaam performing salaah while wearing a topi with a picture of Nabi's (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) slippers

Q: I went to a masjid near my office for Esha prayers. The imam came in wearing a cap that was embroidered with a picture of Our Prophet ﷺ slippers all over it. Is the Imaam in contention of bid'ah? Is my prayer accepted? 

A: The namaaz is valid.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
