One of the primary mustahab things for a deceased body is that it is quickly washed, shrouded and buried. There are numerous ahadith from Ahlul Bayt (a.s.) that point to the hastening in the process of laying the mayyit to rest in his/her grave. 

As for burying the body quickly, besides the health reasons, the family of the deceased also need to vent their emotions and have a fixed place where they are able to mourn and then regularly visit. 

However, if there are valid reasons for postponing the burial, then there would be no problem in that. 

And Allah knows best.

It is haram to intentionally swallow blood, and so if you know you have blood in your mouth, you should spit it out. If you are in the state of prayer, and you taste blood, or for some reason you know you have blood in your mouth, you can spit it into a tissue and continue with your prayer, or wait until you finish your prayer, and then spit it out. 

And Allah knows best.

If the program, cartoon or real, is pornographic, then of course it is impermissible to watch. If the program has certain segments in it that is sexually explicit, and you are of mature age, and such a program will not lead you to commit any haram acts, then watching the program itself is permissible.

However, once such scenes come out, you must fast forward it and skip the sexual content.

And Allah knows best.

We have abundant traditions that mention how Almighty God wishes to receive us in the next life, pure and chastised from our sins. One way this is done is by inflicting us with difficulties prior to our death, like a sickness. 

Traditions mention that being inflicted with a sickness prior to death is a form of purification and cleansing of our sins. 

It is for this reason, that one would be rewarded, and we should look at it in a positive way. 

As for being considered a "martyr" in the technical word, no, it would not be applied to someone who falls sick because of the virus. 

And Allah knows best.

Once you enter into the obligatory prayer, it becomes haram for you to break it. Unless of course there is something more wajib for you to do, like saving a life, or you missed out on one of the pillars of salat, or the other exemptions. 

As for the situation of having to go to the toilet, if one is able to hold on until their prayer is finished, then they should do so, and if not, due to fear of getting themselves najis, then they can go and relieve themselves. 

However, as is known, it is makruh to commence prayer in the first place while one is in need of going to the toilet, which is why one should first go to toilet, do wudhu and then pray.

And Allah knows best.

As for some of the prominent students of Seyid Abu al-Hasan al-Esfahani, who are famously known, they are:

1. Seyid Mahmud al-Shahrudi.

2. Seyid Muhsin al-Hakim

3. Seyid Hadi al-Milani.

Although using what is referred to as "pirated" maybe illegal in some countries, due to violation of copyright laws, it does not necessarily mean it is haram to do, from a shar'i perspective. 

This would mean that there is no need for you to "repent" for such a thing. I would advice one observes caution, so as to not get legally in trouble, and follow the infringement laws of where you live. 

And Allah knows best.

In such a case, the normal discharge is tahir, and she is able to perform wudhu and pray.

In the case where there is a discharge mixed with blood, like istihadhah blood, then the rulings of istihadhah would be applied here.
