The son must tolerate and be patient and never counter his father or hurt his feelings. Whatever wrong done by any parent must be tolerated.

It is good to talk to your father either directly or indirectly to know the reasons of his attitude towards you. That might help decreasing the misunderstanding.

Wassalam.

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.

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.

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.

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.
