Father

A father is the male parent of a child. Besides the paternal bonds of a father to his children, the father may have a parental, legal, and social relationship with the child that carries with it certain rights and obligations.

No one has any right in inheriting from this man but his own two daughters and his wife if she was alive when he passed away. Wife should  get one eighth and rest should be equally divided between the two daughters. If no wife was alive when he passed away, then all the property and wealth should be dived equally between his two daughters only. No one else from the relatives is entitled for any inheritance from him. This is according to Ahlul Bayt (AS) who have the real teachings of the Prophet (SAWA). Sunni brothers have something different which prevents the daughters and give to other male relatives, which is away from Quran and Real Sunnah.

Your father did his duty by paying khums on what was liable for him. Once he transferred that amount to you, it now becomes your responsibility. In regards to gifts and khums, this depends on taqleed, so you will need to refer to your Marja' taqleed to see if khums is liable on gifts.

If your father gives you the pocket money as a gift for you with out any condition, you can then spend it as you wish in lawful expenditure or save it or invest it. No one will have then right on that money or ask you to return it. If your father gives you pocket money for spending and not for saving or investing, then he has right to ask you to use it for your expenses only and return the amounts which were not used in your expenses.

Most of parents give their children pocket money with out condition.

I would not recommend at all that it gets to such a stage where your father has to "force" you to give him a percentage of your income. You should be honoured and more than obliged to give your father what you are able to.

In Islamic law, nafaqah on your father is wajib. Your parents who gave you life, nurtured you, accommodated for you and educated you, the least you can do is give back to them a portion of what you have. 

Yes, you need to make your own financial plans, and plan for your future, as that is also important. You might be reluctant to give to your father if he has an addiction, like gambling or something else that is haram. In these kind of circumstances, you can financially contribute to his life, but not by giving cash. 

But if this is not the case, then maybe your father is financially struggling, or saving  money for you, or teaching you loyalty to parents by giving away what we love the most: "money". 

Give to your parents, and you will immediately see the showing of blessings and fortunes onto you. This is what Islam guarantees. 

With prayers for your success.

Loyalty and honouring one's word is the most valuable and most important of qualities a person can have. If your commitment to your word is weak, or you have no consideration to honouring your promise, what else is there? 

Both the female, and the male as well have a commitment to stay loyal and honour their agreement. Betraying this, and violating the promise or contract given is not only a major sin, but could also weaken the very relationship in the case they wish to pursue for marriage. It will always be hovering over them that they betrayed the amanah given to them. 

Yes, they can do what they are comfortable with, but stay within the permitter of the agreement.

If what you mean by "physical contact", as in no sexual intercourse, then they can have physical intimacy, but no penetration. This is a common condition fathers place, so this is left for consummation of marriage on wedding night. 

If what you mean by "physical contact" is no physical contact whatsoever, then I think this was an unfair condition, and they should speak to her father and explain that this is unrealistic. Or, they can decide if marriage is the best option for them, and hasten that. If, of course, they find each other to be compatible and happy with marriage. 

In any case, violating an agreement, especially if it is a condition in the contract is haram and sinful. 

Best thing to do is negotiate for a change. 

With prayers for your success.

You must be more than careful when talking with or about your parents and must avoid uttering any word which can make them feel disrespected.

If your father is unwell and needs to be reminded, you should be very very polite and very nice in your attitude with him.

If your non Shia father refuses to allow your marriage with a good Believing person, for no valid reason, and you need the marriage to save yourself from falling in sin, you can refer to your Marja' of Taqleed to seek his guidance.

It is disliked for a virgin girl to do Mut'ah marriage.

The fiqhi ruling for this is the same for any wali amr, and she would need the consent of her father, whether he is Muslim or not. This is in the case that she has not been married before and is not completely independent in everything she does (balighah/rashidah). 

And Allah knows best.
