Wahdat Al-Wujood is a claim which means in Arabic (The Oneness or unity of the existence)  . It claims that every thing in the existence is one or from one nature including the Creator and His creation. This claim did not come in Quran or any authentic Hadeeth , on the contrary, we read in Quran clear verses which refute this claim e.g. (ليس كمثله شيء

)Nothing is like Him (Allah)( Sura 42, Verse 11)

Ameerul Mo’minen Ali (AS) says in Du’a Al-Sabaah (The supplication of the morning): يا من دل على ذاته بذاته وتنزه عن مجانسة مخلوقاته (O He who guided to and proved Himself by Himself, and He is absolutely high from homogenizing or being similar to His creatures ).

This claim of Wahdat al-Wojood existed among old non Muslims, then it was taken by some Muslims who are away from Ahlul Bayt (AS)

 Ibn Arabi who is afamous Sufi (died in Damascus 638 Hjri) was among the first who mentioned the term What al-Wojood.

Some scholars say that Ibn Arabi is the founder of this term among Muslims. Some Shia scholars mentioned this term under certain meaning, but all our Shia scholars reject the claim of unity between the Creator and His creatures.

Omar was the first who forbade Mut’ah marriage, not the Prophet (SAWA).

Omar said in public during his rule: Two Mut’a were allowed during the era of the Prophet and I stop it and will punish on it, the Mut’ah marriage and Mut’ah of Hajj. ( 1.Musnad Ahmad Ibn Hanbal , v. 22, p. 365, Hadeeth 14479.
2. Al-Sarkhasi in al-Mabsoot, v. 4, p.27.
3. Ibn Baaz, the grand WAhabi Mufti in Majmoo’ al-Fataawa , v. 20, p.298.
4. Ibn Hazm in al-Muhalla , v. 7, p.107.
5. Sunan al-Nasaa’ee in al-Sunan al-Sughra H. 2735 and al-Sunan al-Kubra H. 3716.
6. Ibn Taymiyyah in Kitab al-Taharah wal Hajj, v. 2, p.471 and many others.)

Omar never said that Mut’ah marriage is forbidden and that he forbids people for it because it is forbidden in Islam, but rather the exact opposite. He affirmed that it was allowed during the era of the Messenger of God (Peace and Blessing be on him and his Progeny ) and he (Omar) who wants to prohibit and punish against it. The evidence is crystal clear that the Mut’ah marriage was allowed and been practiced by Muslims during the era of the Messenger of God (SAWA) and during the era of the Abu Bakr government and part of the era of the Omar government, and confirms that the first one who forbade it is Omar.
On the authority of Abu Nadhra, he said: (I was with Jabir bin Abdullah, a man came to him and said: Ibn Abbas and Ibn Al-Zubayr differed concerning the Mut’ah marriage and Mut’ah in Hajj, so Jaber said: We did them with the Messenger of God (may God’s Salutations and peace be upon him and his Progeny)), then Omar prohibited them, so we did not modify them (Sahih Muslim / c 4 p. 59 - Sunan Al-Bayhaqi / 7 p. 206).
This hadith was narrated in another form: (On the authority of Abu Nadhra on the authority of Jaber (may God be pleased with him) he said: I said that Ibn al-Zubayr forbids Mut’ah marriage and that Ibn Abbas orders it. He said: On my hand the conversation took place, we did Mut’ah marriage during the time of the Messenger of God (may God’s Salutations and peace be upon him and his Progeny) and with Abu Bakr. When Omar took the government over, he addressed people and said: This is the Messenger of God, and the Qur’an is this Qur’an, and Muslims were doing Mut’ah marriage during the time of the Messenger of God (may God’s Salutations and peace be upon him and his Progeny) and I have banned them and admonish them: one of them The Mut’ah marriage, and I will not find a man who married a woman for a period, but will throw him with stones, and the other: the Mut’ah of Hajj (Sunan Al-Bayhaqi / 7 p. 206).
It was also narrated in a third way: (On the authority of Jabir bin Abdullah, he said: We did Mut’ah during the era of the Prophet (may God’s Salutations and peace be upon him and his Progeny): Hajj and women, and Omar forbade them. (It was included by Ahmad Ibn Hanbal in his Musnad C 3 / pp. 356-363) in two ways, one of which is the way of Asim . It is authentic Hadeeth as the narrators men are all confident.
And on the authority of Omar, he said in his sermon: Two things that were in the era of the Messenger of God (may God’s prayers and peace be upon him), and I finished them and punished them: the Mut’ah of Hajj and the Mut’ah of women. (The provisions of the Qur’an for Al-Qassas, Part 1/352 and Part 2, p. 191, Tafseer Al-Qurtubi 2, p. 392).
Al-Ragheb said in his book  (Al-Muhadharaat 2, p. 94): Yahya bin Aktham told a sheikh in Basra: Whom did you follow in the permissibility of Mut’ah marriage ? He said : My evidence is from Umar ibn Al-Khattab. He said how come when Umar was the most against it ?! He said because the authentic narration is that he ascended the podium and said: God and His Messenger have given you two Mut’ah, and I am forbidding them on you and punishing on them, so we accepted his statement that it was on the time of the Prophet, and did not accept his prohibition.
These Hadeeths and others indicate a personal opinion of Umar against what was been practiced during the time of the Messenger of God (may God bless him and his family and peace) and even the time of Abu Bakr !!
Some apologized for him that he was very hard on the issue of Mut’ah marriage because he entered a day in the house of his sister ‘Afra, and found in her lap a baby who had been bron from Mut’ah marriage, so Omar got angry and went out to the mosque and went up the pulpit and prohibited Mut’ah marriage.
Abdullah bin Abbas, the well known companion and cousin brother of The Prophet Muhammad (SAWA) confirmed that the prohibition of Mut’ah marriage came only from Omar, and it was reported that Ibn Abbas said: The verse of Mut’ah marriage is very clear in Quran, and it is as it was , it has never been abrogated. (See Al-Ghadeer, Vol. 6, p. 210).

No one will go to hell if he did not deny and insisted on denying Islam, after knowing about the True Faith.

Those who died before knowing the True Faith will be given full chance in the Day of Judgement  to know about the True Faith, then they will be tested whether they accept it or not.

The son must tolerate and be patient and never counter his father or hurt his feelings. Whatever wrong done by any parent must be tolerated.

It is good to talk to your father either directly or indirectly to know the reasons of his attitude towards you. That might help decreasing the misunderstanding.

The narrations claiming that Abu Bakr led the congregational prayers
during the illness of the Holy Prophet (SAWA) is a fabricated
narration. The narrators of it are well-known enemies of Ameerul
Mo’meneen (AS) and even in Sunni books of Ahadith and ‘Elm-al-Rijaal
they are being criticized by lying. The narrations come mainly from
Ayesha bint Abu Bakr, who led a big army (Al-Jamal battle) to fight and to kill Ameerul Mo’meneen (AS). Other narrators like ‘Orwah ibn al Zubair and his son
Hisham ibn ‘Orwah are well-known enemies of Ameerul Mo’meneen (AS).

Among the narrators is ibn Shihab al Zohri, the well-known servant of
the tyrant rulers of bani Omayyah and Abu Burdah who was appointed by
Muwaiyah and he was among those who gave false witness to kill the pious
companion Hijr bin Adai who was killed by Muwaiyah, So, going through
the narrators it is very clear that all them had a negative stand
against Ahlul Bayt (AS).

Besides the unauthentic  narrators, the context of the
narrations itself is doubtful.  If the Holy Prophet (SAWA) had really
asked Abu Bakr to lead the prayers in the Masjid, then why should he
go with his critical health supported by Al Fazl ibn Abbas and Ameerul
Mo’meneen (AS) to the Masjid and drag Abu Bakr back,as it is mentioned
in the authentic Sunni books. In fact the Holy Prophet (SAWA) never
sent Abu Bakr but he came to know that Ayesha sent a message to her
father that the Holy Prophet (SAWA) is unable to lead the prayers so
go and lead the prayers in the Masjid. When the Holy Prophet (SAWA)
came to know, he was so upset and he tolerated with difficulty walking
with support of 2 people to the Masjid and lead the prayers himself after dragging back Abu Bakr who was sent by his daughter Ayesha with out the permission of he Prophet (SAWA) and against his orders as he wanted Ali (AS) to lead the prayers.

Anyone who claims a prophet after the greatest Holy Prophet (SAWA) is
a non-Muslim because his claim contradicts and denies what the Holy
Prophet (SAWA) himself said (No prophet after me) and what the Holy Qur’an clearly mentions
that the Holy Prophet (SAWA) is the last and final Prophet ( ref :
Surah Al Ahzab : Verse 40).

Non-Muslims are not allowed in any mosque.

It depends on the common understanding of the society. In some
societies, both girls and boys wear earrings but if the society looks
at wearing earrings as an act specified for females, then males will
not be allowed to do any act of females or wear like females. Vice
versa, females are not allowed to wear any special dress of males.

It is compulsory for every Muslim to perform the daily prayers within
its timings. There is no reason at all to justify postponing the
prayers till its time goes away. Your reason (it is too cold in my
home) can never be valid. Muslims who live near the Himalayan
mountains with 12 months of snow perform all their prayers on time and
even in many Muslim villages they perform it in congregation. There is
no question of your waiting for the weather to be warm to perform your
daily prayers. This is nothing but Satanic whispering as Shaitan
always tries to prevent people from performing Salaah. Surah 5 -Verse
91 states : “Shaitan wants only to excite enmity and hatred between
you by intoxicants and gambling and wants to hinder you from
remembering Allah (SWT) and from Salaah. So will you not then
abstain?”

You must perform your prayers in time whatever the climate is and you
must seek forgiveness for any prayers you have missed and you must
perform it as Qadhaa as soon as possible.

Wassalaam.

You must (as a compulsory duty) keep in touch with all your relatives even if your parents do not like some of them. Cutting ties with any of your relatives is a major sin. Your parents are not allowed to cause or order any sinful act because the obedience of Allah (SWT) is more important than obeying your parents.

 You should not do any thing which degrades your parents like criticizing or blaming them.

You can keep in touch with such relatives who are disliked by your parents, without announcing, to avoid hurting the feelings of your parents.
