It is not necessary for water to reach the skin of the head while Masah. Wiping over the hair if that area of the head is enough.

Wassalam.

Yes it is permissible to recite Du'a and mention the name of Allah everywhere. We have a Hadeeth stating that Prophet Musa asked Allah: Can I mention your name when I am in a place where I feel ashamed to do so? Allah replied: O Musa, mention my name everywhere.

It is recommend to recite Sura Al-Qadr during performing Wudhu where ever you perform Wudhu.

 Wassalam.

Neither washing nose is obligatory in Wudhu nor washing mouth. Both of them are just recommended and not obligatory. Washing head or feet in Wudhu is wrong because you should wipe over them and not wash them.

If you are sure that your Wudhu was invalid, you need to perform it properly and re do the prayers which were done with wrong Wudhu.

Wassalam.

As you would know, tayamumm is only done when one has no access to any water or using of water is harmful, like a sickness or extremely cold weather.

In any other case, especially if water is accessible, the mukallaf must do wudhu.

And Allah knows best.

Touching something will not break one's wudhu`, unless it is the touching of a dead human body after it gets cold, and before it is washed. 

For anything else, najis or not, just touching it will not break wudhu`. Of course, if it is wet, and your hand gets contaminated with najasah, all you need to do is wash it. 

As for touching something dirty, the same thing, and no, from a shar'i perspective it is not necessary to 'wash' your hands if it is just dirty and not najis. 

And Allah knows best.

You will not be able to do both wudhu' and ghusl simultaneously and at once. 

So, you can either do wudhu' before ghusl, or after ghusl. 

When you wipe your head during wudhu', you can use four fingers, or three fingers. Both cases are fine.

And Allah knows best.

Bismillah, 

Asalamu Alaykom, 

Merely touching one's private parts doesn't break Wudu for Shia Muslims; it would however break one's wudu for those who refer to themselves as Ahlus Sunnah. Yes, if one masturbated causing ejaculation this would break the wudu and one would require ghusl al janabah. 

May Allah grant you success

Thank you for your question. It is not considered tahir, but if the amount is less then the tip of the thumb to the first crease on your thumb, then it is alright to pray with that amount of blood as long as it has not come into contact with water. For the specific amount of blood there may be differences in opinion and so please also refer to the book of Islamic laws of your Marja.

May you always be successful

Long hair should not not extend more than the area of wiping. If it goes more than the area of wiping, you will be then not wiping on the area required to be wiped, that is why you need to part and wipe over the area itself and not in another area of the head where the long hair reaches.
