Hadeeth Kisa is one of the most  authentic Hadeeths in both Sunni and Shia books. It was narrated by more than twenty authentic narrators like Umm Salamah, Abu Sa'eed Al-Khudri, Ayisha, Jabir ibn Abdillah Al-Ansari and others. Sunni and Shia books narrated Hadeeth Kisa in its brief version stating that the Prophet Muhammad (SAWA) called Ali, Fatima, Hasan and Husain and put on them a cloak (Kisa') and said: O Allah, these are my Ahlul Bayt. He did not allow any of his wives to join them despite the request from Umm Salamah and Ayisha in two different occasions when the same happened in their presence.

Beside this narration, there is another long narration of Hadeeth e Kisaa' by Jaabir ibn Abdillah Al-Ansaari from Fatima (AS) which is been recited by the followers of Ahlul Bayt (AS) in their religious and social gatherings for getting the blessings. This narration of Hadeeth e Kisaa has been narrated  by many great scholars with full chain of authentic narrators. In 'Awaalim of Shaikh Abdullah Al-Bahrani from Sayyed Hashim Al-Bahrani, from Sayyed Maajid Al-Bahrani, from Shaikh Hasan ibn Zain Al Abidin (Al-Shaheed the Thani), from Al-Muqaddas Al-Ardabili, from ibn Abd Al-AALI Al-Karaki, from Ali ibn Hilal Al-Jazaeri, from Ahmad ibn Fahad Al-Hilli, from Ali ibn Al-Khaazin Al-Haeri, from Ali ibn Al-Shaheed Al-Awwal, from Al-Shaheed Al-Awwal, from Fakhr Al-Muhaqqiqeen, from his father  Hasan ibn Yousuf Al-Allama Hal-Hilli from Ibn Nama Al-Hilli, from Muhammad ibn Idrees Al-Hilli, from ibn Hamza Al-Toosi, from Muhammad ibn Shahr Aashoub, from Al-Tabrasi of al-Ehtijaj, from his Shaikh Al-Hasan ibn Muhammad ibn Al-Hasan Al-Toosi, from his father Al-Shaikh Al-Toosi from his shaikh Al-Mufeed, from his Shaikh ibn Qawlawayh, from his shaikh Al-Kulaini, from Ali ibn Ibrahim, from Ibrahim ibn Hashim, from Ahmad ibn Muhammad ibn Abi Nasr Al-- Bizanti, from Qasim ibn Yahya Al-Jallaa', from Abi Nassar, from Aban ibn Taghlib, from Jabir ibn Yazeed Al-Jo'fi, from Jabir ibn Abdillah Al-Ansari from Fatima (AS).

Many other great scholars have also narrated this Hadeeth like Fakhr Al-Deen Al-Turaihi in his book Al-Mubtakhab Al-Kabeer, Al-Dailami  of al-Irshad in his book Al-Ghurar WAL-Dorar. Al-Husain Al-. Al-Hanafi who is a Sunni Hanafi Aalim has also narrated this Hadeeth.

There are many Hadeeths about the great reward and ample blessings and gifts for the person who performs Salah. Also the emphasis on praying Salah with dedication as we read in the first verses in Sura Al-Mo'minoon.

You can read in Thawab Al-A'maal by al-Shaikh Al-Sadouq many narrations in this regard e.g. When the believer performs Salah, the angles cover him with a cover of mercy, and his sins will fall down like the leaves of the tree in autumn. If the believer knows the mercy on him while he is praying, he will never leave his Salah. Prayers cleans the book of  deeds and removes the bad deeds, etc.

The best answer is from Allah in Quran : Say O My servants who have transgressed against themselves ( by committing evil deeds and sins) Despair not of the Mercy of Allah. Verily Allah forgives all sins. Truly He is The Oft-forgiving , The Most Merciful) Sura 39, Verse 53.

The Mercy of Allah (SWT) is much greater than our imagination. It includes every thing (My Mercy embraces everything) Sura 7, Verse 156. Special mercy is for sincere servants servants of Allah who left wrong deeds and repented and sincerely decided not to do it again. Allah Love those who repent and purify themselves. Sura 2, Verse 222.

We need to trust The Mercy of Allah and hope to receive His Oft-Forgiveness. He Has Promised every one who repents and sincerely seeks forgiveness to Grant him His Forgiveness.

'It is good to repeat (YA ARHAM ARRAHIMEEN) also to repeat (YA GHAFOUR YA RAHEEM).

Cruelty to animals is against the teachings of Islam. Those who do that are responsible. This does not mean that using any product is not allowed because the manufacturers did wrong as far as we don't support the wrong. There are two different issues in this question.

Deliberate skipping Salah is a major sin but does not mean disbelieving in Islam (Kufr) as far as the person believes that Salah is obligatory.

Those who deny Salah and don't believe that it is obligatory are considered as disbeliever.

Some Muslim sects like Wahabis claim that skipping Salah makes the person a Kafir right away.

Yes, Islam like Judaism and Christianity believe in the immortality of the soul, which means death is not the end of the soul but it remains facing the results of our faith and deeds in this worldly life.

Ghareeb is an Arabic word which means a stranger. Ghreebul Ghuraba means the the stranger of the strangers.

We have authentic narrations in Kaamil Al-Ziyarat by Ibn Qowlawayh mentioning great reward for visiting Imam Ali Riza (AS) in his far away place في غربته. Which means that he is Ghareeb in the place where he is.

His book Da'aa'im Al-Islam is full of narrations which are from the twelve Imams although he did not mention the names of the six Imams after Jafar Al-Sadiq (AS) due to the Fatimi rulers, but used a Kunyah like Abu Jafar for Imam Al-Jawad, Abul Hasan for Imam Musa Al-Kadhim, and Imam Ali Al-Hadi or a famous title like Al-'Aalim, Al-Saamir , Al-Taahir etc of those six Imams. If you go through the books of Qadhi Al-No'man , you will find plenty of points which are not accepted by the twelver Shia. Great Ulama like Al-Majlisi of Biharul Anwar, Bahrul Oloom, Al-Noori of Mustadrak Al-Wasaa'il and Sayyed Al-Khoo'ee who studies the books of Qadhi Al-No'man Al Masri confirmed that he is a follower of the Twelve Imams.

This claim is baseless. Those who claim this false story say that Safawi ruler forced Sunni to follow Shia faith. Millions of Iranians are still Sunnis and no one forced any one to accept Shia faith. Safawis ruled over many countries including Iran, Afghanistan and parts of Indian subcontinent but history never recorded any force on any one in the matter of faith. Till today Sunnis of those areas are still Sunnis. This fact itself is a living evidence against that false claim.

Mani was never a Prophet because he claimed two gods; light and darkness. Such claim is against the teachings of Islam and all the prophets. Mani was a Christian who mixed with the Majoos (Zoroastrian) and took from them. He claimed to follow Prophet Easa ( Jesus) but did not believe in the Prophet Muses (AS). Similarity in some teachings has reasons but main faith of Islam and all the Prophets is Tawheed (Monotheism). This is the most important faith in Islam and it can not be compared with acts like Wudhu or bowing down etc.

Manichaeism was existing during the Abbasid government and their books were translated to Arabic by some enemies of Islam like Ibn Al-Moqaffa'. Ahlul Bayt (AS) refuted their claims as they refuted the claims of different un-Islamic groups of that time.
