Worship is an act of religious devotion usually directed towards a deity. An act of worship may be performed individually, in an informal or formal group, or by a designated leader. Such acts may involve honoring.

there is no clear reference to the fact that some people attempted to worship the Prophet as god during his lifetime. Rather the Qur'an tells us about another tendency among the disbelievers of his time: "Those who entertain no fear about being present before Us, nor do they expect it, say:- Why should not the angels be sent down on us or we see our Lord?-" (25:21). Their asking for angels and even for the Lord himself shows that they did not believe that the Prophet could be a god.
We can deduce this fact also by their saying: " Shall a mere human being guide us?" (64:6).
If someone would have tried to worship the Prophet as god certainly we would have known by multiple reports as such claim would have circulated and caused a particular sensation at that time.
With prayers for your success.
Yes, it is true that the Prophet (SAWA) and Infallible Imams used to worship Allah for very long hours in the nights ( two thirds or half or one third of the night) and in special nights for the whole night.
We are not supposed to spend the whole night in worshipping and leave our responsibilities in studying and working , but need to spend some time in the night in worshipping Allah (SWT), thanking His Bounties and preparing ourselves for our real future (Aakhirah).
Thank you for your question. They (as) spent the whole of specific nights in worship, but slept in the night on a regular basis. Part of their night was always spent in prayer. A small amount of praying per night should not negatively effect most people's health.
May you always be successful
This is really a personal ethical question. Muslims have never really fully agreed on the nature on Hinduism. Some consider it a religion that leads people to the divine and others consider it to be superstition and idolatry. Maybe there is truth on both sides as most religious have pluses and minuses and different ways they are practiced.
Anyway, if you think this person is doing something good by going to temple, or if you wish to follow the golden rule "do unto others as you would have them do unto you", then give them a ride. And if you disapprove of them going, then don't give them a ride.
This is assuming you are giving a ride to a friend, neighbour, relative, etc, and you are not working as an Uber or taxi driver. If you are working as a driver, most drivers do not interfere with where their passengers are going and just take them there.
We are allowed to use any plant in the proper way, no matter what non Muslims do as far as we do not support their wrong.
Muslims are not allowed to build or take part or help in building any non Muslim place of worship as such places will have wrong way of worship which is not permissible in Islam.
Just because you might have some doubts, or even excessive doubts about certain things, it does not mean you have "OCD". We must remember that such problems must be diagnosed by a psychologist or a professional in that field.
Scrupulosity starts off very innocently, due to one's concern about getting their religious acts right and valid. However, it turns in a very bad state that make one very miserable in the areas they suffer in.
Instead of feeling a sense of spiritual uplifting or inner-peace, waswasah becomes a burden and leads to hating religious practices.
