You must be very lucky if you have excessive amount of free time. In today's society that's very hard to have. There are things you need to do, which you might not be doing, and that is having good family time, and interacting with your family members, your relatives, your friends. Socialising is a healthy thing.

If you are of marriage age, and you are single, then in shaa Allah marriage will help you a lot. 

Reading is important, and having a good reading routine. It can be religious books, or non-religious books, as long as somehow you are benefitting and learning. 

Maybe you can join a course, like a Hawzah program, or some other field that interests you, like graphic design or something like that. 

Sports and recreation is good. It does not need to be competitive. You can go bush walking, or hiking, or something like that.

Having a hobby that can keep you motivated and gain a skill is also very good. By having these things, you will expand in your horizon and have greater ambitions in life. Hopefully these things will enable you to be more useful for yourself and for others.

With prayers for your success.

Allah, The Glorious is everywhere and He sees everything every moment as we believe and read in Quran (He is with you where you may be) Sura 57, Verse 4.

'The Prophet Muhammad and his successors are granted knowledge by Allah as and when Allah wants. Their knowledge is gifted to them by Allah. Allah's knowledge is His own and never given to Him.

Infallible Imams are the most humble servants of Allah after the Prophet (SAWA).

Wassalam.

Allah is happy with humble servants who worship Him with dedication and always remember Him especially before any act or any word , and who serve others for the sake of Allah (SWT). Allah is happy with the humble servants who serve and treat their parents nicely. No one can be accepted by Allah if he is bad to his parents. Obey your parents in every matter which goes along with religion and does not contradict any order of Allah (SWT). Treat them nicely and very politely under any circumstance.

More you make your parents happy, the more Allah will be pleased with you.

Wassalam.

You need to seek forgiveness and pardon from them. If you are unable to do that then seek forgiveness from Allah to forgive you and them and keep praying for them.

Yes of course. Allah (SWT) Has in His Knowledge based in the Absolute evidence the they are the best of all His creatures in submitting to Allah. They want nothing but what Allah wants. That is why Allah ordered all in Quran to obey Allah, the messenger and Ahlul Bayt(Your divine leaders). (Sura 4, verse 59).

Allah, The Glorious Has created us to bestow on us His Mercy. He never needs anything and did not create the creatures for any need by Him but He created us and all the creatures to shower on us His Mercy. We read in Quran (Except those on whom your Lord has bestowed His Mercy, and for that (Mercy) He created them). Sura 11, verse 119.
The most valuable thing for us and for every human being is our life. That is why people sacrifice everything they have for the sake of saving their life. This life is a gift from Allah out of His Mercy on us.

When you pray all the obligatory Prayers and fast the month of Ramadan, it means that you definitely have faith in Allah in your heart. You might have had some doubts or wrong thoughts which are not been dealt with properly and not been cleared yet. Such thoughts might make you think that you lost your faith in religion but in fact you did not.
These are few important points which usually help in similar cases:

1. Be very frank with your doubts and never suppress any question but face it and discuss it by evidence, reason and logic taken from authentic knowledgeable scholars.

2. Don't fear any question and have self confidence that you will find the real answers in the book of Allah and the sayings of the Prophet (SAWA) and his holy Progeny Ahlul Bayt (AS).

3. Seek more guided knowledge from authentic sincere scholars (Ulama) who have experience in similar cases of doubts and questions.

4. Recite Quran with voice which you can hear and try to understand and ponder on its meanings.

5. Recite the sayings of the Prophet and Ahlul Bayt especially in Nahjul Balagha on the subjects of your question. No doubt, the wisdom of the Prophet and Ahlul Bayt (AS) is the best wisdom for any human being who seeks the truth.

It is generally held that "We" in the Qur'an is the "royal we", to express Allah's grandeur and status, similar to how kings refer to themselves as "We" rather than "I" in proclamations.

"We" is usually used in the Qur'an in verses which emphasise Allah's rule and command whereas "I" is used in verses which express Allah's nearness or care, and a direct relationship - for instance, "call upon me and I shall respond to you". 

Sometimes "We" seems to shift to "I", or vice versa, for rhetorical effect. (That is, to make the power of the language stronger.)

Inshallah, although it is possible that your hopes and dreams might change there, since much of what we hope for in the material world relates to our physical circumstances, physical bodies, social circumstances, and so forth. You may also discover that there are new things that you would like to live that you would not have dreamt of here!

Qareen in Arabic means accompanying person. Qareen can be a Shaitan as it is mentioned in Quran ( He who neglects remembering Allah, We will keep with him a Shaitan who will be accompanying him (Sura 43, verse36).

Qareen can be a bad companion who makes bad things in the shape of good. (Sura 41, verse 25).

There is no evidence that everyone is born with a Qareen, though it is mentioned in Some Sunni books to justify their claim that human being is not free in his will.

'The followers of Ahlul Bayt (AS) believe that every human being has full free will to do or not to do that is why he is responsible about his acts.

Those who forget about Allah (SWT) and neglect remembering Him, Shaitan will be with them as a Qareen.
