Every father must pay for his children's expenses, and children are not responsible about the sinful acts of their father. Children's spiritual well-being will not be harmed because of the sins of their father. We have in human history thousands of examples of bad fathers who had very good children and vice versa. Children should not help or encourage their father in committing sinful acts.

Wassalam.

You should always respect your parents and avoid making them feel insulted. No doubt, every man is free to decide where to study and where to work, but never cause insult or pain to your parents. Either you convince your father in a very polite way and get his real satisfaction, or obey his order. It might be difficult sometimes, especially when you think that your benefit is away from the choice of your parents, but be sure that Allah (SW) will grant you more success if you obey your parents.

Remember the promise to the Pious : (And whosoever fears Allah, Allah will get him a way from every difficulty and will grant him from unexpected source) Sura 65, Verse 2 and 3.  

ومن يتق الله يجعل له مخرجا ويرزقه من حيث لا يحتسب ومن يتوكل على الله فهو حسبه

It has been reported from the Prophet, peace be upon him and his family, the following words:

"When a son of Adam dies, his deeds ends except for three: sadaqah jariyah, beneficial knowledge and a pious child who prays for him".

This hadith is found in "Sahih Muslim", "Bihar al-Anwar", "Muniyat al-Murid" and other sources.

Therefore one of the best acts a son can do for his deceased parents is to pray and ask forgiveness for them.

With prayers for your success.

If the income of the father is mixed between lawful and unlawful, then it will allowed for his children to take what they need for their lawful needs with the intention of utilizing the lawful part of the income.

If the whole income of the father is Haram (Unlawful), then it becomes forbidden for the grown up (Baligh) children to use such unlawful income.

The wisdom behind rules of Islam is best known to Allah (SWT), His Prophet (SAWA) and The Infallible Imams (AS). We believe that all the rules from Allah (AS) are based on the absolute wisdom which aims to make our life real human life and guides us to the Right Path. We might be able to know some of the reasons but we can never argue for all the reasons.

Eldest son has the responsibly for the missed prayers and fasts of his parents because they served him before other children and he has the right to acquire special personal items (like rings, watch, personal Quran etc) from his deceased parents.

This rule does not mean that other children can not do that on behalf of their parents. In fact any of them can do whatever he or she wants to fulfill on behalf of their parents, but if it was not fulfilled, then the eldest son remains responsible to complete the remaining if any.

Yes you are allowed to get married to him because he is a Muslim like you and all Muslims are allowed to marry with Muslims as far as the marriage does not cause harm to religion.

a Sunni woman can marry a Sunni man with a Shia father.

It is worth to note in this regard that three of the four major Sunni schools - the Maliki, Hanbali and Shaf'i schools - require the consent of the wali/father for marrying the woman; the Hanafi school however does not deem it necessary.

With prayers for your success.

It is very wrong to pray for your own father's death even if he is a very bad person. The supplication against parents  can have very bad effect on you.

You must treat him nicely and pray for his Hidayah ( guidance). and forgiveness.

Child does not belong to the father only but belongs to both father and mother. Father is fully responsible for all livelihood expenses of the child and the mother, while mother is not responsible to spend on the child even if she is rich.

The Prophet Muhammad has ordered every one to look after his mother, his mother, his mother, then his father.

In the unfortunate situation of separation between father and mother, mother has the right of custody during the childhood years ( 2 years for boy and 7 years for girl) then custody will be for the father.

If you are sure that you visiting such relatives will definitely make
you fall in to sinful acts like shaking hands with the opposite gender
or eating or drinking Haraam food, then you should not visit them

If such sinful acts are not there but the female members who are
not wearing Hijab will come in front of you, you can avoid looking at them by lowering your gaze.

It is against the teachings of the Prophet (SAWA) and Ahlul Bayt (AS) to create a condition in marriage which was never put by Islam. Caste condition is simply un-Islamic .

Delaying the marriage of a female who needs marriage, for no real Islamic valid reason is a sinful act.

The Infallible Imams were from Bani Hashim yet they got married to pious ladies out of Bani Hashim and even out of their language and culture. There is no question of caste in marriage in the teachings of Ahlul Bayt (AS).

The authetic Prophetic Hadeeth says very clearly : If marriage proposal comes to you from a person whom you accept his faith and manners, you should accept it, otherwise the earth will be corrupted with Dispute and wide spread evil.

إذا جاءكم ٬من ترضون دينه وخلقه فزوجوه ، إن لا تفعلوه تكن فتنة في الأرض وفساد كبير.
