Man

A man is a male human. The term man is usually reserved for an adult male, with the term boy being the usual term for a male child or adolescent. However, the term man is also sometimes used to identify a male human, regardless of age, as in phrases such as "men's basketball".

Asking Allah (SWT) to allow you to meet that person and perhaps get married to him if it is good for you, has a very clear and straight forward way which is supplication to Allah (SWT). Supplication (Du'a) is the always-open gate which was created by Allah for His creatures to ask Him as He said ( Seek from Me, I will respond to you) (Sura 40, Verse 60).

Seek from Allah (SWT) always, especially after your daily prayers ( Salah) and after Night Prayers ( Salat al-Layl) and during Sojood to grant you what He knows the best for you.

Recite this verse as many times as you can (إنَّ هذا لَرِزقُنا ما لَهُ مِن نَفاد )Sura 38, verse 54).

Wassalam.

It is permissible to talk to a person for real intention marriage, not to waste time, as far as the talk does not involve emotional words or hints and remains within the limits of getting necessary information about the person's religious and moral  practice.

Any emotional or intimate word must be avoided until Aqd (marriage agreement either temporary or permanent ) is recited between you both.

Wassalam.

Bismillah, 

Asalamu Alaykom,

Wearing this type of hair for men or real hair extensions women aren't  haram but if it was from some non-Muslims who are not Ahlul kitab, then it would be najis according to many scholars.

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.

Bismillah, 

Asalamu Alaykom, 

After a man engages in intercourse with his wife, he'll be in a state of spiritual impurity. So in order for him to be in a state of purity again, he just needs to perform the ghusl al Janaba and this will also give make him in the state wudu as well, so no need to do wudu. 
 

If however during the ghusl or after he would do an action which would break wudu, then he would have to repeat the wudu again and not the ghusl. 
 

May Allah grant you success

When you are still married, you are not allowed to think of another man at all. Even talking on phone or messaging him or any way of contact is not allowed. After you get your Islamic divorce and pass the Idda period after Talaq, then you will be allowed to do that.

Wassalam.

If all other shar'i requirements are met, yes, she can marry that man.

The marriage proposal must take its normal procedure, primarily around the parents giving their consent and their blessings. This is the most important part. 

A second important step is to see the character traits of the person, their moral standards, their family, compatibility, etc.

A third step to take is seeking consultation and advice, trying to find out if this prospect marriage is a good idea, and the obstacles they might face. This is necessary for any case of marriage, Muslim born, or convert. 

Both of them should study this from all its angles, for the sake of making the right decision and having a successful marriage. 

With prayers for your success.

From a fiqhi perspective, a male is allowed to wear shorts, even if it is above his knees.

In Sunni fiqh, according to most of their madhhabs, the knee is considered to be included in the private parts ('awra), so it must all be covered, from the naval to the knees.

However, according to the Shi'i Ja'fari school of thought, the only wajib part to cover is the private parts alone, front and back. 

If a male prays in shorts, the prayer will be valid, although it is not very much advisable to do so, as we must honour the prayer and present ourselves to the Almighty in the most dignified and elegant way possible. That's why, for example, it's so mustahab to use perfume before praying, and so on. 

As for going out in public with shorts, whether they reach the knees or above the knees, this would depend on the society that you live in. For sports or swimming there would not be any issue, but outside of sports, or swimming, we must take into strong consideration whether it is socially acceptable or not.

This is also where the topic of libas al-shuhra would be discussed, and we can leave that for another time.

If one lives in a non-Muslim society, it does not mean he abandons his religious appearance or cultural upbringing, or changes his moral standards. A male also has a form of hijab and modesty, and he must observe this as much as possible.

Is it appropriate for a pious mu'min to be seen wearing shorts casually in public? Most people would answer with a no. A mu'min always sets high standards for himself, and tries to represent his faith and religion in the best form possible, all the time. 

And Allah knows best.

Eyebrow tattoo is not forbidden if it does not contain a name of Allah or Quranic word holy name of any of the Infallible (according to precaution). It should not make the man look like women.
