Laylat al-Qadr is understood to be one night towards the end of the month of Ramadan, but it is not clear which night it is.

Shi'i hadith specify the 19th, 21st, and 23rd as the strongest candidates for the night of Laylat al-Qadr. This is why there is special worship done all night on those days, and not usually on the later nights.

In the Sunni tradition, there is usually a focus on the later nights (any of the last 10 odd nights, but particularly the later ones) especially the 27th.

If one is a Shi'i, there is no harm in doing acts of worship for Laylat al-Qadr on the 27th of Ramadan, with the idea that it could possibly be a candidate for Laylat al-Qadr. Of course, acts of worship like Du'a Jawshan al-Kabir can be done any time. 

Allah knows best.

Putting the Quran on our head then supplicating to Allah is narrated in authentic sources like the well known book known as Iqbal al-A'maal by Sayyid Ibn Tawoos narrating it from Imam Jafar Al-Sadiq (AS).

Saying it as ramazan is incorrect.

Your fast is valid. Bad thoughts which annoy you will not harm your faith nor your worshipping Allah.

Repeating Isteghfaar and repeating Salawaat and repeating La Hawla wala Qowwata ILLA Billah and reciting Sura Tawheed is very useful always especially in driving away satanic thoughts.

Wassalam.

If the 10 year old is a female, who has reached her shar'i age of bulugh, then yes, she will need to pay the kaffarah of 'feeding 60 poor', along with doing the qadha' of that day. 

If it was a male, then no, he does not.

Fasting during the whole month of Ramadan is obligatory on every Muslim even if they don't know how to perform Prayers properly. You must fast and pray as much as you know and must learn as much as you can.

You should take help from those Muslims who know how to pray or pray with congregation.

'Wassalam.

In the case of haydh, the maximum number of days that you do not pray/fast would be 10 days, depending on the circumstances you are in. 

If your blood is continous, then you will need to find out where during this period is your haydh days, and the rest being istihadhah. With the istihadhah days, depending on how much blood there is, you will still be able to pray and fast. 

Please familiarise yourself with the rulings of haydh/istihadhah, and below is a presentation that could help you towards this, in shaa Allah:

Engaging in haram acts does not mean one abandons their devotion to Allah ta'ala and their 'ibadah. 

Indeed, it is even more important to stress on that, for the purpose of hopefully empowering oneself to become more obedient to God and stay away from sin. 

Yes, this man should continue to pray, fast, and perform everything else required by him as a Muslim. If done in the correct way, they will also be valid as well. 

With prayers for your success.

If what you mean by deliberately is that you did not have a valid excuse, then you must:

1. Repent to Allah ta'ala, asking for His forgiveness, if you have not done it yet.

2. Pay the kaffarah, of feeding of 60 poor people.

3. Redo those days, as qadha', and you redo only the days you are certain of, which would be the least amount. In this question, it would be 12 days of qadha`. 

And Allah knows best.

Allah is The Most Merciful, The Most companionate and The best Forgiver.

When Allah knows your sincere repenting feelings, He will grant His mercy on you.

You need to make up (Qadha) all the missed worships.

Wassalam.
