There are many Du'as and Quranic verses for blessing the home after insuring that the home is not a place of committing sinful acts,  e.g. Ayatul Kursi , Sura Al-Hamd, Sura Falaq and Sura Naas etc. it is very useful to recite Quran or play Quranic recitation at home as well as Majlis of Ahlul Bayt (AS). A Hadeeth states: The most liked homes to Allah is the home where an orphan lives with honor.

Homes in which Night Prayer is performed lights for the angles of the sky like the stars which light for people of earth.

Wassalam,

Friday (Jum'ah) Prayer is obligatory if it was called for with all its conditions. This is according to the obligatory precaution ( Ehtiyat Wajib) according many of our leading scholars.

Jummah prayer can never be performed individually (Furada). It must have all its conditions including number of participants of minimum five in congregation.

Wassalam.

You would be allowed to have a shepherd dog or a guard dog, and it will be very useful to do so. Keep in mind that a dog is still externally najis, and you must still treat it as such. For example, if the dog is wet, and it touches you, or you touch it, or it licks you, or its hair gets onto you, etc, then you will need to purify yourself. 

It would also be important for you not to allow the dog inside your house, or in areas you need to keep tahir, and so on. 

And Allah knows best.

Yes definitely. Husband is required to provide all livelihood needs for his wife including home, food, clothing, medication, etc. Even if the wife is rich, still her husband remains responsible in Islam to provide all her livelihood and housing needs for her.

congregational  prayers are much more better than praying alone. The reward of praying in congregation is many folds more which can be hundreds or thousands of times.

Congregational prayer has conditions including the conditions of the Imam of Jama'at. Woman can lead women only in prayers and she should stand in the first row with other women and not to stand ahead of them.

Thank you for your question. The impurity that transfers from a dog needs to be purified from your clothes and place of prayer before you pray. The presence of a dog in itself is not a problem from a jurisprudential perspective. Perhaps you can confine it in an area in your house which you can purify afterwards if there are any places that you are sure impurities have transferred.

May you always be successful

We have many Hadeeths about narcissus النرجس. In Tibb Al-Ridha , page 38, from Imam Al-Ridha : Don't delay smelling the narcissus, as it prevents cold in the winter.
