The main issue of difference between Shia Muslims and Sunni Muslims in Wudhu is the matter of wiping over the feet or washing them. Authentic evidence in Quran and Hadeeth is very clear that the Prophet (SAWA) was wiping over his feet in Wudhu. All Ahlul Bayt (AS) and pious companions (Sahabah) and Tabi'een did the same. These are some authentic Hadeeths in this regard:

1. In Musnad Ahmad Ibn Hanbal, Musnad al-Asharah, Musnad Uthman, Hadeeth number 456: Uthman ibn Affan performed Wudhu by taking water in his mouth then inside his nose, then washed his face and his two arms and wiped over his head and his feet. He said then: I saw the Messenger of Allah (SAWA) performing Wudhu like this. He asked number of companions who were present: O people, is it not? They replied him: Yes.

2. In Sunan ibn Maajah, Hadeeth 453 and in Saheeh al-Targheeb WAL-Tarheeb by Al-Albani, page 208: The confirmed authentic Hadeeth (Saheeh) from Rifaa'ah ibn Raafi' saying: I heard the Prophet (SAWA) saying:  No Salah is perfect from any one until he performs Wudhu as Allah has ordered: Washing his face and hands from the elbow and wiping on his head and both feet.

3. In Mussannaf ibn Abi Shaibah (who was a teacher of Bukhari), Kitab al-Tahaaraat, Hadeeth 55: Uthman ibn Affan said: I saw the Messenger of Allah performing Wudhu by taking water in his mouth and nose then washing his face and his both hands and wiping over his head and upper part of his feet.

4. In al-Mu'jam al-Kabber by Tabarani, Hadeeth 3337: Abu Malik al-Ash'ari told his people: Come together so that I pray in front of you the Salah of the Mesenger of Allah (SAWA). They gathered and witnessed him performing Wudhu by washing his mouth and nose and washing his face and his both arms and wiping over his head and his feet, then he led them in Salah of al-Dhuhr.

5. In Saheeh al-Bukhari, Hadeeth 5352: The Prophet (SAWA) performed Wudhu by washing his mouth and nose and washing his face and hands and wiping over his head and feet.

6. In Sunan Ibn Maajah , part of Al-Taharah, Hadeeth 451: Ibn Abbas said: People (ignorant masses) are washing their feet in Wudhu, but I find nothing in Quran but wiping over the feet.

7. In Mussannaf Ibn Abi Shaibah, volume 1, page 30,  narrating from Ali Ibn Abi Talib : I saw the Mesenger of Allah (SAWA) wiping over his feet (in Wudhu).

8. Mussannaf Abdul Razzaq, Hadeeth 53 on Wudhu, narrating from al-Shi'bi : Jabrael came down from Allah with the order of wiping over the feet.

9. In Tafseer al-Tabari , V. 6, P. 175: Ibn Abbas said: Wudhu is two washings ( face and arms) and two wiping (over head and feet). الوضوء غسلتان ومسحتان.

10. In Tafseer al-Tabari , Hadeeth 10433: Narrating from  Abi Hamza al-Hajjaj (the well known tyrant) was ordering people wash their feet in Wudhu but Anas ( the companion) said: Allah is the truthful and Al-Hajjaj is a liar, and he recited the Verse: and wipe over your head and feet.

These are just few Hadeeths to prove that the Prophet (SAWA) was always wiping on his feet in Wudhu.

Many books were written in this subject by different authors who tried to justify their own sect but among the authentic ones is the well known book named Wudhu al-Nabi وضوء النبي by Sayyed Ali al-Shahristani.

Wassalam.

The place of Mas-h مسح in Wudhu must be dry before wiping over it. Your other hand is making it wet before wiping which is wrong.

Tashahhud is an obligatory part of Salah which must be performed exactly as the Prophet (SAWA) and Ahlul Bayt (AS) taught us to perform according to the authentic Prophetic Hadeeth (Perform Salah as you saw me performing Salah)  (Sallo Kama Ra'aitomooni Osalli)صَلّوا كما رأيتموني أُصَلّي.

Imam Jafar Al-Sadiq (AS) taught his followers all details of Salah including Tashahhud. ( Amaali Al-Shaikh Al-Sadouq , page 498 narrating from Hammaad Bin Easa).

 Tashahhud must have ALLAHUMMA SALLI 'ALA MUHAMMAD WA AALI MUHAMMAD which mentions Imam Ali (AS) and all the Infallible Ahlul Bayt (AS). 

We are not allowed to add on Tashahhud more than what Ahlul Bayt (AS) taught us.

We can mention the name of Imam AALI (AS) in the form of Du'a within our Salah after Tashahhud, like saying : ALLAHUMMA SALLI 'ALA AMEERIL MO'MINEEN. Du'a is always good within our Salah and not only in Qunoot.

By this Du'a, we will be mentioning the holy name of Ameerul Mo'mineen (AS) and not adding on the Tashahhud which was been taught to us by Ahlul Bayt (AS).

Wassalam.

Usually we deal with questions related to practical issues which people experience in their day to day life. Your question looks like very far from day to day life, nevertheless if you want the answer for knowledge, it is obligatory to save our life. Deliberate failure in saving life and causing death is a sinful act. It is not permissible to cause death to yourself even if the only food available to remain alive is pork, but no more than what make you survive.

That poetry was made by order of the Prophet (SAWA) to register and confirm in the memory of people the great declaration of Ghadeer. The poetry of Hassaan Ibn Thaabit

بخمّ وأكرم بالنبي مناديا

Has become one of the important poetry in the history of Islam which recorded the most important order of the Prophet Muhammad (SAWA).

We are been advised to eat less and leave the food when you are still feel wanting to eat more. That will then leave space for drinks and breathing. It comes from your personal experience which makes you able to estimate the one third for food and the other third for drinks and the last third for breathing properly with out feeling full or heavy.

The criterion for recognising the hypocrites is their negative attitude towards Ameerul Mo'mineen Ali (AS). Virtuous companions have heard from the Prophet Muhammad (SAWA) that no one likes Ali but a believer, and no one dislikes Ali but a Munafiq (hypocrite). This authentic Hadeeth is narrated in Saheeh Muslim (number 113) and Musnad Ahmad ibn Hanbal and Tirmithi and Ibn Maajah and many books of Hadeeth.

Sajda al-Shokr is just one prostration in which we say: Shokran Lillah or Shokran Shokran Shokra. It is recommended to repeat Shokran Lillah or Shokran either three or fives or seven or ten or forty time or more.

'It is highly recommended to perform Sajda al-Shokr after every Salah to thank Allah for granting us His blessings to perform Salah. It is also recommended to repeat it whenever we remember any bounty granted to us, or any harm or danger removed away from us.

Best books which can uplift and reform us are:

1. Quran especially when you recite it or listen to its recitation with pondering. It is very useful to recite or listen to Sura Qaaf which  is Sura 50 and Sura Yaseen and Sura Arrahmaan.

2. Saheefa Sajjadiya which has got great supplications narrated from Imam Al-Sajjad (AS) in different situations and for different needs. It is a miracle in its meanings and effect on the heart and mind.

3. Sermon of Ameerul Mo'mineen called Sifat al-Muttaqeen which in Nahjul Balaghah.

4. Jaami' al-Sa'adaat book by al-Naraqi. It is translated and published in English.

Yes, Imam Al-Mahdi is granted from Allah ( SWT) the knowledge about our deeds and he feels happy for our good deeds and vice versa. We are encouraged to talk to Imam Al-Mahdi (AS) whenever we want and seek his help, prayers and blessings. Allah (SWT) makes our voice reach to him. We read in the Ziyarah of Ahlul Bayt (AS): I bear witness that you see my place, hear my talk, and reply my Salaam.أشهد أنكم تشهدون مقامي وتسمعون كلامي وتردّون سلامي 

Lovers of Allah, the Prophet and Ahlul Bayt never feel lonely. Imam Al-Mahdi is never far away from his lovers and they are always able to talk to him.
