We can not say that every vocal melody is disallowed because the way of Tajweed, Azaan , Nawhakhwani etc has a vocal melody. The music which is usually used by the sinners is not permissible even if it used in Noha or Tajweed.

If the melody  is used by the sinners, then we must avoid it.

We have narrations in Mustadrak al-Wasaa'il (2:484) from the Prophet (SAWA) that the spirits of the believers come back on Fridays near their homes and every one from them will call him family members who are alive: O my family, O my children, O my father, O my mother, O my relatives; have a sympathy on me, may Allah have sympathy on you....

أرواح المؤمنين ليلة الجمعة
2525 / 24 وقال (صلى الله عليه وآله): " ان أرواح المؤمنين تأتي كل جمعة إلى السماء الدنيا بحذاء دورهم وبيوتهم ينادي كل واحد منهم بصوت حزين باكين: يا أهلي، ويا ولدي، ويا أبي، ويا أمي وأقربائي اعطفوا علينا يرحمكم الله بالذي كان في أيدينا والويل والحساب علينا والمنفعة لغيرنا وينادي كل واحد منهم إلى أقربائه: اعطفوا علينا بدرهم أو برغيف أو بكسوة يكسوكم الله من لباس الجنة "، ثم بكى النبي (صلى الله عليه وآله) وبكينا معه، فلم يستطع النبي (صلى الله عليه وآله) أن يتكلم من كثرة بكائه، ثم قال: " أولئك إخوانكم في الدين، فصاروا ترابا رميما، بعد السرور والنعيم فينادون بالويل والثبور على أنفسهم يقولون: يا ويلنا لو أنفقنا ما كان في أيدينا في طاعة الله ورضائه ما كنا نحتاج إليكم فيرجعون بحسرة وندامة، وينادون: أسرعوا صدقة الأموات ".

We have in our main books of Hadeeth two narrations from Esma'eel son of Imam Ja'far Al-Sadiq (AS); one in Al-Kaafi by Al-Kulaini , volume 7, page 388, and the second narration is in Al-Tahtheeb by Al-Shaikh Al-Tousi, volume 6, page 287. The reason can be because he passed away during the life of his father when people used to take the Hadeeths from Imam Ja'far Al-Sadiq (AS) himself.

I did not find any narration in our main books from Muhammad ibn Esma'eel who was in touch with the Abbasid tyrant Haroon Al-Rasheed who put imam Musa A;-Kadhim (AS) in jail for long years then killed him by poison.

Dajjal ( The Deceiver) is one of the definite sign of the Reappearance of Imam al-Mahdi (a) along with the Heavenly Cry, the riot of Sufyani, and the riot of Yamaani. There are narrations that Dajjal will be killed by Imam Al-Mahdi (AS).
According to a narration by Al-Shaykh al-Saduq from the Prophet (SAWA), mention of Dajjal has been in the past but his presence will be in future.
According to Hadiths, Dajjal appears at a time of hardship and starvation, deceives a group of people, and gathers them around himself.
Qutb al-Din al-Rawandi narrated a Hadith from the Prophet (SAWA) through Sunni sources saying, "No prophet was ever assigned to mission unless he alarmed his people about the mischief of Dajjal."

The authentic Hadeeth in al-Kaafi encourages kissing the hands of the Prophet (SAWA) and his Holy Progeny and any one whose hands are kissed for the sake of them. No doubt, kissing the hands of your parents is very good and also the hands of pious scholars who are servants of Ahlul Bayt (AS) and the hands of any believer as far as this kissing his hand is for the sake of Allah and not for worldly matter.

Bismillah, 

Asalamu Alaykom, 

We have narrations like this however some scholars do ta'wil of these narrations and state that if kissing someone's hand such as a righteous scholar, is done with the intention of glorifying Ahlul Bayt (as), then it is permitted. This is because many respect the righteous scholars due to them being those who spread Ahlul Bayt's (as) teachings, and there narrations from the imams (as) themselves emphasising on respecting the righteous ulema as well as keeping away from the evil ones. 
 

May Allah grant you success

There is no book of Hadeeth compiled by Shia or Sunni scholars which is 100% and fully authentic in each and every narration. Al-Kafi is the most authentic book of Hadeeth among Shia scholars. Bukhari is claimed to be fully authentic by many Sunnis but it contains narrations which go against Quran and allegation against the Prophets. The authentic Hadeeths in Al-Kufi are more in number than all the total authentic Hadeeths in all the six books of Sunni Hadeeth الصحاح الستة. 
Number of unrepeated narrations in Saheeh al-Bukhari is 2602 and in Saheeh Muslim 4000, while the number of unrepeated narration mentioned in both Bukhari and Muslim is 2514 narrations.

Al-Kafi alone has 16199 narrations.

My understanding of this is that it is with respect to spiritual matters, particularly the spiritual position of Ahl al-Bayt (A) in that if some people who did not have an understanding of this heard some people talking about it openly, they might react negatively due to ignorance.

Yes of course. Ilm al-Rijal is the knowledge which makes us know the trust worthy person from others. Allah orders us in Quran to verify any information or news and not to take it blindly. Sura 49, Verse 6. With out proper verification things will be mixed and we will not know which narration is authentic and one is not. Liars in history till today are too many. Thousands or more narrations were fabricated for political reasons and other worldly reasons. Ilm al-Rijal enables us to verify and avoid false narrations and take and act upon authentic narrations narrated by pious trustworthy persons.

We have authentic narrations in Shia and Sunni books from the Prophet Muhammad (SAWA) stating that wearing gold is not allowed for men as well as wearing pure silk. Regarding gold we have an authentic Hadeeth from Ali ibn Jafar from his brother Imam Musa ibn Jafar (AS) when he was asked: Is it allowed for man to wear gold? He replied: No, because the Prophet (SAWA) did not allow it. ( Wasaa'il al-Shia, V.4, P.415). We have also a narration from Ammar ibn Moosa  from Imam Jafar Al-Sadiq (AS): man should never wear nor pray with gold. (Wasaa'il al-Shia , V4, P. 413).

In Sunni books, Tirmithi and Ibn Hanbal and many others  narrated that the Prophet (SAWA) said: Silk and gold are forbidden on the men of my Ummah, permissible for their women.

That is why it is unanimous among Muslim scholars from all Muslim sects that wearing gold ands silk is forbidden for Muslim men.

   1.    The Names of the Twelve Imams of Ahlulbayt (A.S.) were mentioned by the Prophet Muhammed (P.B.U.H. and His Holy Progeny) in many authentic Hadeeths narrated in Shia Books and Sunni Books as well. Despite all the efforts of the enemies of Ahlulbayt (A.S.) to delete and hide and destroy any written Hadeeth in favor of Ameerul Mo'mineen (AS.) and Ahlulbayt (A.S.). You find till today many of Sunni Books still contain many Hadeeths in favor of Ahlulbayt (A.S.). 
    2.    The Twelve Successors: 
All Muslims believe that the Prophet (SAWA) has said that: My Successors will be twelve. This Hadeeth of Twelve Successors is mentioned in:
    ⁃    Saheeh Bukhari ( Hadeeth number 6682) 
    ⁃    Saheeh Muslim ( 3393 and 3394 and 3395 and 3396 and 3397 and 3398)

    ⁃    Sunan Al-Tirmithi 2149.
    ⁃    Sunan Abi Dawoud 3731 and 3732
    ⁃    Al Mustadrak Ala Sahihain by al-Haakim al-Nisabouri ;6586, 6589 and 8529.
    ⁃    Al-Albani in Takhreej al-Hadeeth; 376, 1075 and 3598.
    ⁃    and in many other Sunni Books. The Hadees states that all the twelve will be from “Quraish”.
    4.    There is more clear Hadeeth from the Prophet (SAWA) which was been hidden by most of the narrators who where under the pressure of the tyrant rulers of the enemies of Ahlulbayt (A.S.). This Hadees states that all the Twelve Successors of the Prophet (SAWA) will be from “Bani Hashim” as it is narrated by the well known Sunni Scholar Al Qunduzi Al Hanafi in Yanabee’ Al Mawaddah Vol: 2 Page: 315. 
    5.    The names of the Twelve Imams one after another are mentioned in many Hadeeths in the book of well known Sunni Scholar Al Khawarizmi Al Hanafi in his book Maqtal Al-Hussain narrating from Abi Salma from the Prophet Muhammad (P.B.U.H. and His Holy Progeny). (Vol: 1 Page: 146.)
    6.    The Hadees mentioning the names of 12 Imams also narrated in the book of the well-known Sunni Scholar Al Qunduzi Al Hanafi (The name of the book is Yanadiyeh Al Mawaddah) Vol: 3 Page: 380. 
    7.    There are Hadeeths mentioning the names of Twelve Imams (A.S.) narrated by al Hamaweeni As Shafi’ee. 
    8.    Also you can find the mention of the Twelve Imams in the well known Sunni Book Tazkirat Al Khawas تذكرة الخواص by Sibt Ibne Al-Jawzi (a well known Hanafi scholar in Vol: 2 Page: 373. 
    9.    One of our well known Ulama (Al-Khazzaz Al Qummi) who was one of the students of Sheikh Al Sadooq has compiled a full book ( Kifayat al-Athar Fi al-Nass Akal Etha Ashar)in which he mentioned of Hadeeths stating the names of the Twelve Imams narrating from 30 Companions by their names who mentioned what they heard from the Prophet (PBUH) the names of the Twelve Imams (A.S.)                  
    10.    A Sunni scholar by the name of Shaikh Hikmat al-Rahma has compiled a book known as The Imams of Ahlul Bayt in Sunni books.                                       Wassalam.
