Thank you for your question. This depends heavily on the maturity of the child, but while a child may be convinced of religion or not, they are not taken account for their actions or their beliefs until they reach an age of maturity. On the other hand, if they commit good actions with belief they will be rewarded.

Thank you for your question. The purpose of every human is to purify themselves so that they increase their level of faith towards the perfection that God created them for. After this general purpose, everyone has their own purpose but that is something that is revealed to them during the course of their lives, or even at their time of death, and even if they are not fully conscious of what that purpose is, or they don't know what it is at all, it will come to pass.

Thank you for your question. Mental health in Islam is termed as the struggle with the self. With self-reformation and purification, a person becomes enlightened and is adorned with beautiful character traits. Their source of strength is God and they are far away from worshipping their own egos. They are a source of blessing and peace to all those around them. Since the struggle with the self is one of the most important aspects of the spiritual message of Islam, mental health is something that is extremely important. It is unfortunate to see many Muslims chasing after mental health solutions in traditions that are sometimes even secular in their outlook which focus on the strengthening of the ego rather than humbleness in front of God, as that is usually due to a lack of familiarity with the solutions that are offered within Islam.

Thank you for your question. There is no dichotomy between a virtuous spouse and success in the material world. In fact, the virtues taught by Islam enable the most beautiful of lives. Good character traits also include hard work, a sense of responsibility, and independence. The goal is not to hide from the world, but to have a strong enough relationship with God so as to not be stained by its negative aspects. That in itself is a journey.

Thank you for your question. They generally prayed the 5 prayers at their separate times.

At the same time, even when the prayers of zuhr and asr and magrib and isha are combined this is still prayers 5 times a day even if the gap between the prayers is small. So it is a mistake to say Shias pray 3 times a day. The prayers are 5.

Thank you for your question. In classical theological ruminations, a difference is drawn between those people who have understood the message of Islam and chosen to reject it, and those who don't accept it because they have not understood its message. To further categorize the second group, there is a difference between those who do not know about the truth of Islam because they haven't put the effort to research in order to find the truth and those that have. It is this last group that will not und up in hell according to those ruminations. There is also the issue of those who are mistaken in the path of life they take, perhaps because of a negative interaction with Muslims which has put them off researching Islam and those who are living the message of Islam even if they have not come into appropriate contact with Islam, and these two groups are also given the benefit of the doubt.

So in summary if a person doesn't know properly about Islam, but that is not out of a lack of searching for the truth then they will not end up in hell.

Keep in mind that touching the sacred names of Allah, the Holy Prophet, and the Imams peace be upon them is forbidden in the state of period.
Also if the Dua contains a verse of the Holy Quran, it's okay to recite them, but be careful not to touch those words.
