It is not our job to determine who will enter Paradise or who will not. Allah knows the intentions and circumstances of every creature, and He grants Paradise to whom He wants, according to His Knowledge and Mercy.

You can visit some useful websites like Al-Islam.org or rafed.net or Shia search.org and read about the principles of faith (Isool Al-Deen) then read about the practical rules e.g Prayers, fasting, Hajj, Khums etc.

If you have any question, you are welcome to ask on this website.

Bismillah, 

Asalamu Alaykom, 

Enjoining the good and forbidding the evil has conditions. If you see that you have already tried with such a person and there is no benefit in continuing to do so, then you can leave them.

May Allah grant you success

If you are sure that your Ghusl of Janabah was invalid e.g. you did not make the water reach to every part of your body, ultimately the Ghusl is invalid ven if you did not know that it was invalid.

In such case you need to re-do all the obligatory worship like Salaah, fasting etc which you performed without a valid Ghusl.

The reward for your previous deeds will
never be wasted by Allah SWT, but you must re-do it as it has been
done without valid Ghusl. You can perform the Qadha gradually or with your daily prayers.

Wassalam.
