Most countries have systems of formal education, which is commonly compulsory. In these systems, students progress through a series of schools.

It is allowed for Muslims who understand Islam with its evidence to study in schools belong to non Muslims because Islam promotes useful knowledge from any one, but it is not allowed for a Muslim to take part in any non Islamic worship because it is wrong worship and your participation can give wrong message that you approve their worship despite Islamic rule that it is wrong.

Attending school assembly is permissible as far as it does not include a wrong worship. Christian schools keep on claiming that they do not force any non Christian student to attend Christian religious gatherings. If you are under pressure to attend church, you have full right to report those who force you.

 Wassalam.

Bad friends can harm you more than your enemies. Never indulge in wrong even if your friends do. You must be careful that your friends don't make you lose your pious character nor make you share their bad acts.

You should seek advice from trusted scholars and persons in your area.

Young persons who are unable to marry are been advised to keep fasting as many days as they can. Fasting helps making them more able to control themselves.

Divorce is the most disliked act although it is allowed when it does not involve injustice.

'There are conditions for valid divorce, e,g, Wife should not be during her monthly period of menstruation, nor during purity days when she has had sexual intercourse with her husband. Husband should not be forced or under pressure to divorce his wife. Two pious witnesses who witness the declaration of divorce by the husband or his attorney.

There is no three Talaq in one time at all.

Wassalam.

Thank you for your question. As long as you pray within the time (i.e. before the time for the prayer passes entirely) there is no problem if you don't pray at the recommended time. If it happens that you miss the time completely you must make up that prayer outside of its time.

May you always be successful

Yes, of course you may write about Imam Husain (a.s.) and his humanitarian movement in standing against injustice and oppression. I'm sure you are able to be creative in your style and select things to write that would be of benefit to the readers in your school. There are many elements of the personality and revolution of Imam Husain (a.s.), and you will need to take that into consideration when you want to introduce such a wonderful personality to those around you. Write about his sacrifice, his moral life, his social reform movement, the loyalty of his companions, and so on.

With prayers for your success.

Yes, it would be permissible to use dough, or pasta in school projects. As for "any other foods", that would depend on it being halal of course.

as salam alaikum

the four Sunni schools of jurisprudence are related to practical laws and therefore they are not directly linked to doctrinal and theological issues (although sometimes we see some affiliations).

Theologically, Sunni schools can be divided in three main branches: Ash'aris, Maturidis and Ahl al-Hadith.

The Sunni-Shia debate have been dealt in different way by different scholars belonging to these branches. Therefore the judgment more often goes back to ulama, or groups of ulama, and not to the schools themselves. Also, it may depends on what Shi'i trend they refer as their judgments may differs from a Shi'i approach or group to another.

We certainly see some Sunnis very staunch against Shi'ism while others are more tolerant. The same goes for the Shias towards Sunnis. So it is prudent not to generalize and analyze single groups and opinions from case to case.

With prayers for your success.

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.

Perhaps you are referring to the practice in the Shia community of combining the Zuhr and Asr prayers and the Maghrib with Isha prayers.

This is considered permitted on account of abundant evidence in the Islamic sources that the Prophet (s) had combined these prayers without any special reason.
