We pray towards the Kaaba. Is that shirk? No. In fact, it is better to face the Kaaba when supplicating to Allah.  Please think deeply about your questions and only ask the question if it is

Everyone should have enough money to have some disposable income. And there’s nothing wrong with it. Being wealthy isn’t wrong—it’s what you do with it.

I am not arguing @Mahdavist i just want to know.

the animal itself has to be one of the permissible animals for consumption (cow, sheep, goat, camel etc)

Ok, agreed.

one should slaughter it as per the islamic method, reciting the basmala while cutting the jugular vein. 

Regarding butcher.....
1. Must be a Muslim.
2. Must say Allah Hu Akbar/Bismillah while slaughtering the animal.
3. Animal should be slaughtered Islamic (Arabic) way.

Obviously i am not present when an animal is slaughtered and i am not responsible for the acts of the butcher. 

I remember one instance when the (muslim) butcher got angry and while slaughtering saying "you mother F_____", after that for months i did not eat mutton.

By purchasing your meat at a halal butchery,

Most important point is the money should be Halal otherwise halal meat purchased with haram money automatically becomes haram.

Is making dua to kaaba shirk, if you look at the kaaba and you say Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) and you speak to Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) when looking at the kaaba or make dua, is that shirk and are similar activities shirk ?

Please think deeply about your questions and only ask the question if it is necessary. Asking these sorts of questions all the time is going to lead to waswasa. Trust me, you do not want to suffer from waswasa.

Is day trading gambling, if you study it and you have practised on a demo account, and have made many profits , and obviously losses but you've had more wins that losses and made profit, and you feel confident enough to trade with real money. And if you know you arent going to be 100% every time and you are going to make losses, but everything has risk when making money. So is it halal even if you dont own the stock you are just speculating the price based on educated guesses ? And you arent using any leverage or any other haram things.

does this mean acquiring wealth more than needed allowed ?

Imam Muhammad Baqir ((عليه السلام).) states,

“If one obtains knowledge in order to become conceited or to argue with the foolish people or to obtain wealth or to attract people towards himself then he has certainly made the Fire his abode. Verily, acquisition of wealth is not permitted but for ones own family (needs).”17

For your question, it may depend upon the religious act and the level of shyness. However, generally speaking, shyness is not a valid excuse for not performing an obligatory religious act.

Consciously committing a sin is a type of al-shirk al-khafiyy (hidden shirk):

Have you seen the one who takes as his god his own desire? Then would you be responsible for him? [25:43]

Al-shirk al-khafiyy is not as severe as al-shirk al-jalee (manifest shirk). For example, al-shirk al-jalee causes someone to become a mushrik, which is impure (one of the ayn najasah) whereas al-shirk al-khafiyy generally (most of the time) does not cause someone to become a mushrik.

That's good, inshallah, @Muhammad Al-Hurr

Maybe razkijgt5 apprehension is similar to this.

Before l reverted, l was a 1st Commandment Christian --same as lslam but no Quran or Hadith.

One of the precepts in that is you do not pray in public [ Matthew 6:5 -especially on the street].

So going to a mosque at first was unsettling because it is in public.

You get the idea? So until Razkjgty is more specific we can't help anymore.

Taking advantage of someone's ignorance is defrauding.

Otherwise, Ayats 104:2-3 and Ayats 4:29, 35:29

but does the saying mean you are not allowed to have more wealth than needed  if it says family needs ?

If you are acquiring wealth just for the sake of acquiring wealth (i.e., with the intention of becoming very rich) or for bad reasons (i.e., with the intention of attaining (negative) power over people or to show off) then this is not permitted. If you acquire wealth for good reasons, such as your family, then it is permissible even if you acquire more wealth than needed.

Can you break up a turbah for tayammum and press your hand on the dust of it, and then do tayammum with it ?

and if not what are the other ways you can do tayammum with a turbah ?
