    • I agree with you, sadly I have noticed evangelicals growth is increasing while catholic is decreasing. 
    • Salam it depends on multiple factors which if selling it leads to promotion of Christianity or anti Islam cults so therefore selling it will be not permissible which usually holding a big cross in paintings of wars is about fighting with muslims or prosecution other nations likewise American natives in name of fighting with non believers according to radical Christian standards which if in rare cases if it doesn't about these events so therefore selling it maybe problematic because praying with it for a muslim will be problematic . According to Ayatollah Makarim Shirazi Praying with a cross necklace or a garment emblazoned with the image of a cross  https://makarem.ir/main.aspx?typeinfo=21&lid=0&catid=44591&mid=274917 https://portal.anhar.ir/node/629#gsc.tab=0 According to the opinion of Ayatollah Sistani Issue 2063 - There are many haram transactions, among them are the following:... Fourth: Dealing with haram tools means things that are made in a form that are usually used for haram use and whose value is haram due to their Haram use, such as idols and crosses and Gambling devices and forbidden amusement devices are prohibited.

If someone prays with these symbols, is the prayer invalid? Response: If it is not made of gold, the prayer is correct, but it is not permissible to use jewelry that imitates the aggressive culture of the enemies of Islam and Muslims.

    • Salam it means eternity although as physical example it alos mentions (city of Aden, Yemen from where the word Garden of Eden was taken) in it's best eternal form because at that time it was example of paradise in Arabian peninsula which even now KSA have heavily invested in occupied parts of Yemen (city of Aden & paradises around it) as future of it's eco tourism . The meanings of the words of the verse of Eden (Adn): (on the weight of Aql): establishment. "Eden Balmakan: Istaqar"«عدن بالمكان: استقر». Mine: place where minerals are located. It is meant in the verse of eternity and everlasting. «جَنَّاتُ عَدْنٍ» eternal (everlasting) Paradises. Tafsir Noor ([by Iranian cleric] Mohsin Qara'ati [in Persian.]) V5 , P 167 For them are eternal gardens under which streams flow (their palaces and thrones). There they are decorated with golden bracelets and wear green clothes made of thin and thick silk, while there they are leaning on the (heavenly) thrones. What a good reward and what a good position! Points "Adn" «عَدْنٍ»means residence and place. «أَساوِرَ»"Asawar" is the plural of "Aswarah"«أَسْوِرَةٌ» for bracelets, «سُنْدُسٍ»"Sundus" is for thin silk and «إِسْتَبْرَقٍ» "Istabraq" is for thick silk, and «أرائك» "Araek" is the plural of "Arika" for a royal throne that is covered with a net. In the previous two verses, we read about the people of hell:«بِئْسَ الشَّرابُ وَ ساءَتْ مُرْتَفَقاً», what a bad drink and what a bad position, and this verse says about the people of Paradise:  «نِعْمَ الثَّوابُ وَ حَسُنَتْ مُرْتَفَقاً» , what a good reward and what a good position. According to the fact that in heaven, every kind of clothing of any kind and color is available to the heavenly beings, but the allocation of green clothes may refer to their formal and general clothes that they adorn themselves with while leaning on their thrones. Messages 1- The rivers of heaven also flow from under the trees«مِنْ تَحْتِهِمُ الْأَنْهارُ», also from under the palaces of heaven. «مِنْ تَحْتِهِمُ الْأَنْهارُ» 2- Beheshtian's use of jewelry shows that humans naturally love jewelry and makeup. «يُحَلَّوْنَ فِيها مِنْ أَساوِرَ» 3- Believing and following Allah's commandments and staying away from forbidden luxuries in this world is the key to attaining eternal luxuries in the hereafter.  يُحَلَّوْنَ فِيها مِنْ أَساوِرَ ...... 4- Resurrection is spiritual and physical, because if it was spiritual, there would be no need for gold and silk https://wiki.ahlolbait.com/آیه_31_سوره_کهف#
    • Salam you can choose to read it standing as one rak'a or two rak'as in sitting position which in Mustahab prayers generally two rka'ts in sitting position is equal to one rak'at in standing position which you can choose one of styles anyway because it has been recommended that in each rak'a based on tradition  of Ahlulbayt (عليه السلام)after Hamd , 100 Surah will be recited so therefore  It's highly recommended that it will be done in sitting position which also it has been recorded from imam Sadiq (عليه السلام)  which his father  Imam Baqir (عليه السلام) has been reciting it in sitting position .  Mustahab prayers  4- Khoei, Sistani: And it is better to perform all twenty rak'ahs before Zawal (Sistani: except for two rak'ahs, which is better at the time of the Zawal).   [grand Ayatollah] Sistani: Issue - Nafilah prayers can be recited while sitting, even if you are in state of optioning . And it is not necessary to count both rak'ahs as one rak'ah, but it is better to recite standing up, except for the Nafilah of Isha, which must be recited while sitting based on precautionary Wajib.   According to Ayatollah Makarim  https://portal.anhar.ir/node/1879#gsc.tab=0   Wutairah prayer or Nafila Isha prayer is a mustahab two-raka't prayer which, according to the advice of  infallible imams , should be read after the Isha prayer. This prayer, which according to the majority of jurists should be recited while sitting, replaces Witr prayer (the last raka't of the night prayer) and carries its reward for those who do not manage to recite it for any reason. Some jurists cautiously consider two raka'ts of sitting prayer equal to one standing raka't . For this reason, two sitting raka'ts of Nafila Isha are considered exactly equal to one raka't of Witr prayer and they refer to a narration from the Holy Prophet ((صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم)) that he did not pray Wutairah or Nafila Isha due to the fact that he was persistent in reading Witr prayer. Of course, it should also be noted that in the eyes of some jurists and religious elders, it is preferable to perform this prayer while standing, like other prayers. In the virtue of this prayer, we can also mention some hadiths from Imam Sadiq ((عليه السلام).): It is stated in the book "Mustadrak al-Wasa'il" that Imam Sadiq ((عليه السلام).) said: Do not skip the two rak'ahs of prayer after Isha (Wutairah prayer), because it leads to attraction of  sustenance and abundance of sustenance. He has also narrated from his father Imam Baqir ((عليه السلام).) that whoever recites the wutairah prayer and recites a hundred verses in it, is not considered one of the heedless. In the book "Wasail al-Shi'ah" Imam Sadiq ((عليه السلام).) has been quoted as follows: Whoever prays Wutairah prayer and dies, the reward of Witr prayer will be written for him. The quality and method of reading Nafila Isha Like other nafila prayers,Nafila Isha  prayer has two rak'ats and it is read at the same time as the obligatory prayer. In traditions and religious texts, it is recommended to read one hundred verses in Nafila Isha prayer. Imam Sadiq ((عليه السلام).) narrates about Imam Baqir ((عليه السلام).) that he recited a hundred verses in the Wutaira prayer, which in one rak'at was Surah Al-Waqiah and in another rak'at was Surah Tawheed. Also, Imam Baqir ((عليه السلام).) recommended reciting Surah Al-Mulk in the Wutaira prayer. https://setare.com/fa/news/36968/نماز-نافله-عشا-نماز-وتیره-چگونه-خوانده-می‌شود/   How to pray Nafila Isha prayer (Wutairah) Wutairah prayer consists of two rak'ahs, which is recited after Isha prayer while sitting. The time for performing the Wutairah prayer is after the Isha prayer until Sharia midnight. But it is better to do it immediately after Isha prayer. This prayer can be read anywhere, including the place where we performed the obligatory Isha prayer. The worshiper sits cross legged  and recites the intention of prayer. It is recommended to recite one hundred verses of the Qur'an in two rak'ahs of prayer. It is also recommended that instead of reciting 100 verses, he recites Surah Al-Waqiah once in the first rak'ah and goes to ruku and prostration. And Surah Tawheed should be recited in the second rak'at and after Qunoot, bowing and prostration should be performed again in the same sitting position. Then he recites Tashahhud and salam and finishes the prayer. Reciting the Tasbihat [Tasbih] of Hazrat Zahra (sa) at the end of the prayer adds to its reward. https://www.alamto.com/duas/نماز-نافله-عشا      
    • Salam respectfully  a little correction is that we need holy Quran & Ahlulbayt (عليه السلام) which hadith & Sunnah is a subgroup of holy Quran & Ahlulbayt (عليه السلام) .
