It is not allowed for him to force you to cut relations with those who it is wajib to keep relations with such as parents and siblings. If you cannot solve an issue by speaking to him, then it's advised you get a trustworthy scholar from the community to mediate and advise him that this is haram and a big sin. If you don't fear any harm to yourself, you may also contact your family without his permission

Wearing this type of hair for men or real hair extensions women aren't  haram but if it was from some non-Muslims who are not Ahlul kitab, then it would be najis according to many scholars.

There is no issue to travel to Muslim or non-Muslim countries provided one knows that they would not fall into sins or do haram actions there. Yes, if going to a particular location would make the person think there is a very high chance of them doing haram then they should avoid travelling there.

As far as permissibility, yes, it is permissible. It could be said though that it might be makruh, due to it being an image.

Irrespective of what maddhab he may be, it is extremely important to recognise and affirm good qualities for your potential spouse, especially in being honest and truthful.

It is permissible for a Shi'i to marry a Sunni, as long as he/she is able to preserve their Shi'i identity and practice their Shi'i ways without pressure or backlash. 

If he is interested in the Shi'i madhhab, then that will be his choice, but he needs to make it clear to you as to why he is saying he is Shi'i, but, might be doing certain things the Sunni way.

Is it because he is in fear of his life, and therefore he needs to do taqiyah? Is it due to lack of understanding, and what slight differences there are between the Shi'i method of praying and the 4 Sunni methods? 

Or, is it him trying to please you and make your hear what you wish to hear only, which means he is not be honest to you? 

This is a conversation that needs to happen.   

With prayers for your success.

Eid Al-Zahra ( 9th Rabi'ul Awwal) is one of the big days of happiness for Ahlul Bayt (AS). It is mentioned as the second Ghadeer. It is the day of the end of one of the main enemies of Lady Fatimah Al-Zahra (SA). In Quran we read that the believers celebrate and rejoice the end of the enemies of Allah (Sura 30, Verse 4).

Hadeeth of Ahmad Ibn Is-Haq al-Ash'ari from from Imam Hasan Al-Askari (AS) stated that the Prophet Muhammad (SAWA) has informed his grandsons Hasan and Husain to celebrate this day because it will be the end of their mother's enemy. ( Dala'il al-Imamah by ibn Jareer al-Tabari and Rawdhaat al-Jannaat by al-Khonsari, page 768.

from AllahYes. It is highly recommended to recite Quran and do good deeds on behalf of the Prophet (SAWA) and his Holy Progeny. Our great Ulama advise to recite Quran daily and gift the reward of it to Imam Al-Mahdi (AS). You will then get greater reward and more generous gifts from him.

It should be noted that reward of reciting Quran or any good deed can be gifted not only to the deceased ( Marhoumeen) but also to the living persons.

Thank you for your question. The concept of Wahdat al-Wujud refers to how there is only one essentially real being which is God. There are many differing views on the specifics of this theory which need to be fully explained within their field of study. As a conception in theoretical mysticism the theory doesn't have a sectarian bias. There have been Sunni and Shii intellectuals who have found the theory useful, as well as Sunni and Shii intellectuals who have rejected it.

May you always be successful

There are many Hadeeths from the Prophet (SAWA) and Ahlul Bayt (AS) mentioning benefits of wearing Aqeeq e.g. the Prophetic Hadeeth: Wear Aqeeq ring,  as it removes poverty. 

Another Hadeeth says: Wear Aqeeq rung, as it protects you from depression and sadness.
A Muslim complained to the Prophet (SAWA) that he was robbed. The Prophet replied him: Did you wear Aqeeq? It protects from every evil.

Hadeeths stated that the Reward of prayers is multiplied seventy times or more if you pray wearing Aqeeq ring or even any ring.
