    • This is a great work by Shaykh Rasul Jafariyan, one of the top Shi'i scholars of today in history: https://www.amazon.ca/Life-Messenger-Part-One-Political/dp/B087L3JPH2/ref=sr_1_1?dchild=1&keywords=muhammad+rasul&qid=1594577290&sr=8-1 This too by Ayatollah Jaffer Subhani: https://www.al-islam.org/message-jafar-subhani
    • Salaam brother, may Allah bless you for being concerned about your religious obligations this way. Watch this 2 part Khums seminar by Sayyid Muhammad Rizvi, a very well known and qualified scholar here in the West. It should perfectly answer your questions. He covers a lot of issues Muslims in the West may face: Part 1:  Part 2:    As for Zakat, I think for most Muslims nowadays, especially in the West, Zakat doesn't apply, unless they're farmers or something. However, I haven't learned too much about zakat so you should check with a scholar or your marja. Also, maybe search about it on this website: https://www.al-islam.org/
    • When you are performing your second prostration and you are about to come up for the tashahhu you place your left foot over your right foot before you sit up. They should hold their position. Although I must also admit that I've hurt the upper part of my back before (although I have been having back issues for years now, so I'm susceptible to throwing it out) or more common if I haven't stretched well after having done leg exercises (long walks, jogging or squats) my legs kind of jam up and I can't maintain that position for the post-prayer ta'qibat.  It is kind of like yoga really, once you get used to it it is easy, but can be a bit a tough getting there. 
    • It gets better. Your body will get used to it.
    • This is just a emotional rant, have a good day.
    • Though I grant you that people embraced Islam during the time of Rasulallah in  crowds is accepted hence the revelation. However, you are deceiving yourself believing the verse is implying the masses of people embracing Islam after demise of Rasulallah is the same in the era of the Prophet is not the case. Many faction came into existence after the Prophet ((صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم)), for example:  Khawriji Umayyads, Abbasid, Aaharis, Sunnism sub sects splintering of  Hanfi Malkis Hanabali Shafi  Wahhabism Sufism this should suffice for now The above groups all had different ideological difference supported by extracts below: Abu Hamid Ghazali in his book Manqul fi Ilmi'l-Usul says: "In fact Abu Hanifa distorted the religious code, made its way doubtful, changed its arrangement, and intermingled the laws in such a way that the code prescribed by the Holy Prophet was totally disfigured. One who does so deliberately and considers it lawful is an infidel. One who does it knowing it to be unlawful is a sinner." Imam Ghazali says in his Mutahawwal, "There are many mistakes in Abu Hanifa's work. He had no knowledge of etymology, grammar, or hadith." He also writes, "Since he had no knowledge of hadith, he relied on his own conjecture. The greatest fitnah in Baghdad was between Shaafi's and Hanbalis, because of which many people died. The Deputy of Baghdad tried to intervene, and the Shaafi representatives cried 'on what basis should we negotiate, and with who? A Resolution is when there is a difference between two parties over power. These people (Hanbalis) deem us kaffirs and we deem anyone that does not ascribe to our view to be a kaffir, hence peace between us is impossible". (Taken from Tabaqat al Janabal la bin Rajab Volume 1 page 20 - 21 & Wafay' at thu Ayan Volume 1 page 308). Your reliance on the verse dose not support you're feeble argument you are intentionally and deliberately misleading.

      I just wanna post my defense when it comes to posting both the internet links and quoting the whole thing in the quote box.
      For those of you who don’t know of my position, I usually post a bit on the long side by providing not just the internet links, but also quoting the entirety of the internet link in the Quote Box. Why do I do this? Because what would happen if the internet links don’t work if such links I provide are mysteriously inaccessible or simply gone? We might lose possibly invaluable information. That’s what the intent was on my part for quoting the entirety of the internet link in the Quote Box along with the internet link as a contingency plan.

      O you who believe! avoid most of suspicion, for surely suspicion in some cases is a sin, and do not spy nor let some of you backbite others. Does one of you like to eat the flesh of his dead brother? But you abhor it; and be careful of (your duty to) Allah, surely Allah is Oft-returning (to mercy), Merciful. [Qur'an 49:12, Shakir]
