Parents

A parent is a caregiver of the offspring in their own species. In humans, a parent is the caretaker of a child (where "child" refers to offspring, not necessarily age). A biological parent is a person whose gamete resulted in a child, a male through the sperm, and a female through the ovum.

No, it is not a valid reason in Islam to refuse a marriage proposal from a suitable person who is good believer with nice morals, just because of his living too far.

Yes it allowed to foster children in any country. Helping and looking after and upbringing any child in need is a noble work which has great reward. Non Muslim children looked after by good Muslims might make them discover the great teachings of Islam and enlighten their life with the light of Islam.

You should never hurt the feelings of any of your parents. Permission from one parent does not mean to disrespect or hurt the feeling of the other parent. I advise you to avoid any act which might hurt the feeling of any of your parents.

Virgin girl needs permission of her father or paternal grand father for her marriage. Mother's permission is not an obligatory condition, yet, her respect must be maintained properly.

Wassalam.

Not every Muslim woman needs her father's permission for her marriage. Only the virgin girl needs her father;s permission or her paternal grand father's. If the marriage is not the first marriage, then she is free to decide although it is always good to keep the respect of her father and mother but there no condition on her marriage.

Even virgin girl can get married if she needs marriage to save herself and her father is objecting on the marriage with out a valid Islamic reason.

Money given to you is your money. If any amount of that money remains with you unspent, after one year from owning that amount,then Khums will be obligatory on that remaining amount only.

1. Life includes tests. Different persons have different tests. Having a child with disability is a test for the parents just like other tests for other persons.

2. Those who are born with disability are also been tested but Allah compensates them with great gifts in this life and mainly hereafter.

Getting married should be completely independent on getting graduated or having a permanent job. As long as you are mature enough to take on the important responsibility of marriage, and stay committed to the relationship, regardless of the circumstances, then get married.  

Allah ta'ala is al-Razzāq, and by fulfilling half of your religion and pursuing marriage, many doors of barakah will open for you. Have tawakkul on God, and plan towards your marriage, and leave the rest for Him. 

You could have the most stable of jobs, and be married as well, and then it all falls apart. What will you do? If we have less expectations, and spend less on meaningless wedding ceremonies, and focus more on building a relationship, we would be successful in our marriages even if we were the poorest of people. 

With prayers for your success.

Yes as far as they are Muslims.
Muslim sinner , no matter what type of sins, inherits from his Muslim parents. Non Muslim is not allowed to inherit from Muslim.

Man does not need his parents permission for marriage, however, he needs to avoid hurting them or making them feel disrespected.

If you need to get married to save yourself from falling in sinful acts, you should go ahead and get married with a suitable believer female.

Bismihi ta'ala

Unfortunately, many young adults face this same serious problem of certain parents with a wrong mindset preventing their son/daughter to get married, under the assumption that marriage will hinder their studies, or career prospects. 

We must invite people to adhere to our Islamic recommendations, and keep ourself immune from sin or engaging in illicit or secret relationships.

I would not advice you in any way to secretly get married, behind your parents. This is something that would not be to your benefit. Try to prove to your parents that you are ready for marriage. Show that you are mature, and you have the ability to combine between your college and having a partner. Even if it means your engagement period can be a bit long, but as long as you do not do something haram, or without your family's blessings.

With prayers for your success.

Assuming you would have naturally experienced one of the signs of ritual maturity, or bulugh, you become mukallaf. For a boy, these signs are:

1. Having a wetdream.
2. Growth of coarse pubic hair in private parts.
3. Reach age of 15 full lunar years.

As a result, it would be wajib for you to pray, and so if you know you did not pray for about two months, you are able to perform them as qadha`. 

And Allah knows best.

You should do your best to protect your friend from falling in to sinful acts. If she did not listen to you or to other friends, you should tell her family to help her if you have no other way to help protecting her from wrong.
