As-Salam `Alaykum, I would like to know if there are some rites or something in the Sunnah regarding the consummation of marriage. I mean if there is a way in the Sunnah to have the first sexual intercourse with one's wife. Jazakum Allahu khayran.

As-Salamu `alaykum. I would like to know is it haram to kiss the girl you are going to marry, if yes, why? Let me explain the situation between me and this girl. We are planning to get married later on after my elder brother and sister get married themselves, all of our parents and family know about this because it was done with their consent, there has been no formal engagement but her parents have given their word to my parents yet it was me and her who decided to get married. Jazakum Allah khayran.
I am a Muslim from the former Soviet Union. Unfortunately, I never had an opportunity to pray my Prayers in a mosque back in my country. I pray at home here, but at work time I want to visit a local mosque for Zhuhr and `Asr Prayers. My problem is that I do not know the proper etiquette of entering a mosque for Prayer. Please advise and instruct me about what to do and how to behave.
Dear Brother/Sister, I would like to know more about etiquettes about using the restroom. I know that when we use it, we use water to clean our selves, and also that we stay farther away from someone else as possible, and that we use the toilet while squatting or sitting down. I know a Brother who does not follow much of these practices and would like to give him some advice. One part I would like to give advice is to sit down or squat on the toilet and not stand up. Can you please tell me if it haraam to stand up to stand up when using the toilet and how should I explain this to my Brother in Islam.
