Islamic spitting, hair and money

A Muslim asks a scholar

Should I spit 3 times during the congregational salah (prayer) when satan disturbs me? because i feel by spitting i am again getting distracted

And the scholar replies

Praise be to Allaah.
It is Sunnah (Hadith) for the one who is praying, if he notices the whisper of the Shaytaan during his prayer, to seek refuge with Allah from him and to turn his head only, then spit dryly to his left three times, but it is considered highly offensive to spit to the right because;

‘Uthmaan ibn Abi’l came to the Prophet and said: O Messenger of Allah, the shaytan interferes between me and my prayer and my recitation, and he makes me confused. The Messenger of Allah said: “That is a devil called Khinzab. If you feel that, then seek refuge with Allaah from him and spit dryly to your left three times.” He said: I did that and Allaah took him away from me.

A Fatwa from Iran says that;

Mullets are un-Islamic, according to the Iranian government. The country's culture ministry has produced a catalog of banned and approved haircuts. Ponytails and spikes aren't allowed, but quiffs and 80s-style floppy fringes appear to be fine. Offenders can expect a hard time from Iran's fashion police, who have been known to haul people with the wrong haircuts to police stations for a quick trim and a fine because......

Narrated Abdullah bin 'Umar:
Allah's Apostle forbade leaving a tuft of hair here and there after shaving one's head.
With regard to wearing the hair up, or making it into a bun on top of the head, or parting it at the side, some scholars disallow this, lest it be an imitation of the kaafir women. Some of them included the bun in the condemnation narrated from the Prophet:

Narrated by Muslim (Imam Muslim never claimed to collect all authentic traditions as his goal was to collect the most popular hadith. Muhammad was dead for over 200 years before he started his collection of hadith).
The Prophet Muhammad stated that in later generations of his ummah (community) there would be "women who would be dressed but naked and on top of their heads what looks like camel humps. Curse them for they are truly cursed."

A Muslim asks a scholar

Can I put my money into a bank or open a savings account?

And the scholar replies

Putting money in riba-based banks and taking the riba (which is called “interest”) is haraam and is a major sin.

The scholars of the Standing Committee said:
The profits which the bank pays to depositors on the sums of money that they deposit in the bank is regarded as riba (usury, interest) and it is not permissible for him to benefit from these profits.

He has to repent to Allaah from depositing money in riba-based banks, and withdraw the money he deposited and the interest. He should then keep the capital and spend the interest on charitable causes to help the poor and needy.

Undoubtedly dealing with banks that deal with riba is not permissible, because that is helping them in sin and transgression.

And it was proven that the Prophet cursed the one who consumes riba, the one who pays it, the one who records it and the two who witness it, and he said, “They are all the same.”
If ‘they’ want to Sharia, they have to Sharia all the way.
Btw, most of us know the difference between usury and interest.

And when it is said to them: "Make not mischief on the earth," they say: "We are only peacemakers. Verily! They are the ones who make mischief, but they perceive not." -Quran 2:11,12
