In our Shari'ah, we do not have any prohibition or censuring of marriage of a Seyid/Seyidah to a non-Seyid/Seyidah. This is a cultural practice and personal preference of a parent. 

One must bear in mind though that if one is to marry a Seyid/Seyidah, they must stress on a higher level of honouring and respecting them, due to their lineage to Ahlul Bayt (a.s.). 

As this is a frequently asked question, please refer to other answers given on this:

Zaid Alsalami's response to Is a female Sayed allowed to marry a non-Sayed male? (al-islam.org)

And:

Zaid Alsalami's response to Is it true that Imam Khomeini's daughters are married to non-syed Muslims? (al-islam.org)

And Allah knows best.

If one had enough time, and intentionally did not perform ghusl before Fajr time, then their fasting for that day will be invalid, and they must redo that day as qadha` and pay kaffarah

If they did not have enough time, or it was not intentional for them to stay in janabah, then their fasting is valid.

And Allah knows best.

There are many shar'i concerns regarding a mixed gym, for both males and females.

The dressing of men and women are not within the shar'i boundaries, and any male or female will without choice see someone of the opposite gender with bare minimum clothing, or in provocative positions that for us could be considered immodest in public. This could lead to lustful gaze, and other things that entail haram.

If you are able to avoid all of this, and avoid doing things that would be against a Muslim woman's public modesty, then you can go. This means you would need to go at a time where there are no men at all.

Alternatively, you can go to a women only gym, or purchase gym equipment and use at your own discretion at home. 

And Allah knows best.

Repenting from a sin is very important, and that's very good that you have sincerely repented from it, but it does not mean you are able to deny having committed it if confronted about it. Taking a false oath is a major sin, and worse than that is swearing a false oath on the holy Quran. 

As for saving your honour, you need to weigh out what the situation is, and what kind of consequences there will be for revealing this sin, or whether there will be detremental damage to you, or harm. 

It might be advisable that you somehow change the scenario, or do tawriyah, to avoid severe backlash, if that is what the situation will be.

With prayers for your success.

As important as your husband's career may be, it cannot be more important than obeying Almighty God or having children. I am sure he is somehow able to adjust his working schedule during the holy month to be able to see you, and try to work around your ovulation time. He can get some time off work during the night, for whatever reason, even if it's unpaid leave. 

However, you must both know that it will be haram and sinful for him or you to break your fast for this purpose, and the worst case scenario is for him is to either take a night off, or wait until after the ending of the holy month. 

You are certainly a noble believer, and hence you ask this question, but if you break your fast for such an invalid reason, this guilt will always be with you, so it is always best to abide by the shar'i requirements and always have hope in Allah ta'ala who will accommodate for all our needs, all in due time.

With prayers for your success.

I would like to direct you to something I wrote on my website regarding your important question. Although it is long, but it will hopefully explain this misconception in detail.

If your husband pursues extra-marital affairs, either in the halal way (mut'ah or seeking a second wife), then you have the choice of either staying with him, or getting divorced from him. 

Of course, such issues must be directly addressed, and his and your family be involved as well. 

Your husband might be going through a phase, and needs a wakeup call for him to return back and focus on his marriage. If so, forgive him, and try to strengthen the relationship.

However, if after intervention he still pursues the new relationship, then you decide what you wish to do. To divorce him, or continue to live with him. Just know that you are not obliged to live under such circumstances.
