1. Prophet hood is a post of huge responsibility and has a very big burden.
The prophets are required to face the objections and evil deeds of the tyrants and all
their followers and the prophets need to argue and strive to convey the message of Allah and usually face torture and even many prophets were been killed. The prophets need to fight against the enemies of Allah SWT and lead wars to defend the
faith. This is one reason why it is not practical to send a female as a prophet
because it won’t be appropriate for a female to do such harsh,
difficult and hard responsibility.

2. It must be also mentioned that the prophet cannot be a female because
the female is usually under the control of her husband or father or
the men of her family while the prophet should be in control of all
the society and not under control of anyone.

3. Also the female cannot be prophet because females have
natural menstrual cycle during which they suffer from some symptoms
and also females usually have pregnancy and childbirth and have to
look after the infants and that all will have effect on her health and
mentality and this will not be appropriate with the responsibilities
of leading the whole community and the prophet hood.

4. The prophet is supposed to be the teacher of all people and it is not
appropriate for a female to be a teacher of all people because usually many
of the men do not accept to be students of a
female. It might be sometimes because of cultural reasons but it is an existing fact.

In the Holy Qur’an in Surah al-Anbiyah, Verse 7, Allah SWT said
: “We did not send before you but men to whom we have revealed”
(وما أرسلنا قبلك الا رجالا نوحي اليهم) Which is very clear that all those who were been sent by Allah as messengers are men.

We in Islam believe in the great pious ladies like the status of Lady Fatimah (SA) and Lady Maryam and the status of mother of Prophet Musa and the status of
mother Prophet Ishaaq as we read in the Holy Qur’an that Allah SWT has
sent the angels to speak to them, but angels speaking to a servant of
Allah SWT does not mean that this servant becomes a prophet.

Some Sunni Ulama like Abul Hassan al-Ash'ari and Ibn Hazm and 
al-Qurtubi claimed that Lady Maryam and other ladies were prophets and
their claim was because of angels talking to some pious ladies. This
claim has been refuted by almost the vast majority of Sunni Ulama and
all the Shia Ulama as well.

The well known Sunni scholar al-Nawawi mentioned in his book al-Athkaar
from Imam al-Haramain that there is Ijmaa (concensus) among the Ulama that Maryam was not a prophet.

The greatness of Fatimah (AS) in fact is more than the status of all
the prophets except her father, which means that Islam has given the
highest status to Fatimah (AS) because she was entitled to that status
and because she is part of her father Muhammad (SAWA) who is the best
of all the human kind.

Those who claim that Islam does not give enough respect to the women
because in Islam there are no female prophets, should be asked: Do they
have in Torah or Bible any evidence that any female prophet was sent
by God to guide people?

Islam is the most practical and most realistic religion and that is
why it gives every responsibility to the appropriate person who can
handle it. Prophet hood is a responsibility which can never be handled by a woman no matter how pious she is.

We do not have any authentic evidence neither in our books nor in Sunni books that Abu Bakr accompanied the Prophet Muhammad (SAWA) in his migration from Makkah to Madina. On the contrary, we have in authentic Sunni books that Abu Bakr was not with the Prophet during that journey as you can see in Al-Bidayah Wal Nihayah by Ibn Katheer narrating from Ibn Jareer al-Tabari. (Al-Bidayah Wal Nihayah , Vol 3, Page 219)  and also Al-Seerah al-Nabawiyyah by Ibn Katheer , V. 2 , Page 236).

The person who was accompanying  the Prophet (SAWA) was a travel guide who knows the roads of the desert between Makkah and Madina by the name of Abdullah Ibn Orayqit Ibn Bakr عبد الله بن أريقط بن بكر (Mukhtasar Tareekh Dimashq by Ibn Asaakir , V. 13, P. 35).

Some people changed the name from Ibn Bakr to Abu Bakr.

The narration that Abu Bakr was with the Prophet in the cave of Thawr and the spider covered the cave's entrance is fabricated and it has got similar story in the Jewish stories as it as been admitted by leading Sunni scholars. (Tafseer al-Qurtubi, V. 13, P. 346).

In the well known book (Saheeh al-Bukhari (1:170) narrating from Ibn Umar that Abu Bakr and Umar and other well known persons migrated to Madina before the Prophet and used to pray in Masjid Qiba behind Saalim Mawla Abi Huthaifah. Also, there is in Saheeh al-Bukhari 8:115), a narration from Abdullah Ibn Umar that Saalim Mawla Abi Huthaifa used to lead in prayers Muslims including Abu Bakr, Umar,  Abu Salamah, Zaidand  Aamir Ibn Rabee'ah. That was before the arrival of the Prophet to Madina.

Al-Haakim Al-Neesaboori who is a leading Sunni scholar in Hadeeth has narrated that the Prophet migrated from makkah alone and Abu Bakr was not with him (Al-Mustadrak Alal Saheehayn, 3:133).

There is book written on this subject by Shaikh Najaah al-Taa'ee.

Black mailing is not allowed in Islam. Asking money from people must be based on lawful contract i.e. selling , renting, etc. As he did not commit the crime, you can not ask him for money just for trying to harm you. Such money will be illegal money.

If he hit you causing reddishness on your body or more effect, then you will be entitled to take penalty ( Diyyah) from him. The penalty amount depends on the extend of the harm on your body caused directly by him.

The narration means that astrology is known only by a family in Arabia and a family in India. As the narration did not mention the name of the family, we can not suggest any name.

You do not need to get rid of the cat. The bowl and all items are not Najis unless you have an evidence that it had wet Najis item in it. If you know that it is Najis, then just washing it with water will make it Taahir.

It is nothing new to see these claims and it is part of the ongoing false propaganda against Islam which is  going on since over 14 centuries but fortunately with out any success. The facts of Quran are clear for those who have knowledge despite these false allegations. The proper study of Quran proved that there is no contradiction at all for those who understand the meanings away from their own imaginations.

All these claims have been refuted one by one by our scholars who took their knowledge from Ahlul Bayt (AS). There are many books compiled in this subject like Al-Ehtijaj which contains some answers from Ahlul Bayt (AS) on some claims.

Now a days we find many enemies trying to use wrong translation and claim contradiction.

If you need any help in refuting any specific claim or claims, you are welcome to write.

Wassalam.
