Verse 9 of Surah Fussilat says: "The earth was created in two days" and verse 10 says: "The mountains, blessings and food of the earth were created in four days"; Following these verses, the creation of the heavens is also mentioned in "two days". It may be thought that the sum of these is eight days. But we must note that the two days mentioned in verse 9 are also part of the four days mentioned in verse 10; In this way, in the first two days, the earth was created and in the next two days, other characteristics were added. In fact, verse 9 speaks of the creation of the earth, and verse 10 discusses the total stages of the creation of the earth and its preparation for life.

It is possible that they pronounce the permanent marriage contract without mentioning the dowry i.e Mahr, so they can decide on what it will be with a mutual consent after the marriage.
But if the intercourse takes place before determining the dowry, the woman will be eligible to ask for the Mahrul Mesl i.e. a dowry which is usually given to this type of girl with these characteristics and family and social position.
A woman needs her husband's consent for going out of the house but she can acquire and ensure these rights that are mentioned in the question as a stipulation or a condition during the contract, so she can ask for the right of studies and working.
Even if she has not and the stubborn husband is not going to let her go out, she can still continue her studies online and even work online because it doesn't need going out.
May Allah (swt) bless his soul and raise him with Muhammad and his Ahlulbait (a.s).
It is recorded in Fiqhi books like Urwatul Wuthqa that if one is buried without Ghusl, it is obligatory that he/she must be exhumed and the Ghusl is performed on their bodies and then get buried again GIVEN that 1) the corpse is not decayed and 2) the act of exhumation is possible and also 3) the fact that the whole process is not considered a disrespectful act to the buried person.
There's no need for a wood chamber if you mean a coffin by that.
If the circumstances above are not possible at all then do not worry, Allah (swt) judges us according to our actions and let's hope that your father's actions be sufficient for getting Allah's Mercy. And you as his children can give charity and recite Quran and do Mustahab acts and gift the reward to his soul and it is very much recommended as the duty of children towards their parents!
These rituals are the duties of the alive people around the dead!!!
Assalaamu alaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuh
If we want to be realistic we need to know that "love" brings "obedience".
No doubt that you and all our Sunni brethren love Ahlul Bait (a.s) and you all really get sad when hearing the calamities and oppressions that went to them.
Insha Allah this love will make you read more about the realities of the history.
Just as a clue I want you to have a research about:
1.The Verse of Wilayah i.e. 5:55 :
إِنَّمَا وَلِيُّكُمُ اللَّـهُ وَرَسُولُهُ وَالَّذِينَ آمَنُوا الَّذِينَ يُقِيمُونَ الصَّلَاةَ وَيُؤْتُونَ الزَّكَاةَ وَهُمْ رَاكِعُونَ
Your guardian is only Allah, His Apostle, and the faithful who maintain the prayer and give the zakat while bowing down.
Who gave zakat while boing down?
2. The verse of Ikmal i.e. 5:67 :
يَا أَيُّهَا الرَّسُولُ بَلِّغْ مَا أُنزِلَ إِلَيْكَ مِن رَّبِّكَ ۖ وَإِن لَّمْ تَفْعَلْ فَمَا بَلَّغْتَ رِسَالَتَهُ ۚ وَاللَّـهُ يَعْصِمُكَ مِنَ النَّاسِ ۗ إِنَّ اللَّـهَ لَا يَهْدِي الْقَوْمَ الْكَافِرِينَ
O Apostle! Communicate that which has been sent down to you from your Lord, and if you do not, you will not have communicated His message, and Allah shall protect you from the people. Indeed Allah does not guide the faithless lot.
3. The verse of Iblagh i.e. 5:3 :
الْيَوْمَ يَئِسَ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا مِن دِينِكُمْ فَلَا تَخْشَوْهُمْ وَاخْشَوْنِ ۚ الْيَوْمَ أَكْمَلْتُ لَكُمْ دِينَكُمْ وَأَتْمَمْتُ عَلَيْكُمْ نِعْمَتِي وَرَضِيتُ لَكُمُ الْإِسْلَامَ دِينًا
Today the faithless have despaired of your religion. So do not fear them, but fear Me. Today I have perfected your religion for you, and I have completed My blessing upon you, and I have approved Islam as your religion.
See the interpretations and see the context for revelation of this verse+ have a search about Ghadir Event and what our beloved Prophet s.a.w.a did on that event.
4.See verse of Mubahala i.e. 3:61 :
فَمَنْ حَاجَّكَ فِيهِ مِن بَعْدِ مَا جَاءَكَ مِنَ الْعِلْمِ فَقُلْ تَعَالَوْا نَدْعُ أَبْنَاءَنَا وَأَبْنَاءَكُمْ وَنِسَاءَنَا وَنِسَاءَكُمْ وَأَنفُسَنَا وَأَنفُسَكُمْ ثُمَّ نَبْتَهِلْ فَنَجْعَل لَّعْنَتَ اللَّـهِ عَلَى الْكَاذِبِينَ
Should anyone argue with you concerning him, after the knowledge that has come to you, say, ‘Come! Let us call our sons and your sons, our women and your women, our souls and your souls, then let us pray earnestly, and call down Allah’s curse upon the liars.’
What was the importance of this incident?
Insha Allah Ta'ala you will find meany new things

SHAFAQNA – Imam Sajjad (AS) had severe stomach ache in Karbala to an extent that he could not carry weapons or fight [1,2,3]. The illness started in Karbala and not from the time Imam Hussain (AS) started his journey towards Iraq. Of course his illness was a divine plan so that one child would remain from Imam Hussain (AS) to undertake the Imamate and the leadership of Muslims.

There are some Ahkaam in religion that have no justification except "obedience" and this matter is among them.
If one is obedient to God, he/she should say ok my Lord.
Some have tried to raise some justifications that I think none of them are true and we can't accept them as a reason behind this legislation.
