Day Questions

I am a new Muslim I have been following Sunni Islam I have now read some books on Shia Islam and I would like to become a Shia but there is no Shia mosque where I live can I still pray like a Sunni and go to the Sunni mosque?

There is nothing wrong with visiting Sunni Mosques but the prayer should be according to the sect of the Ahlulbait as believing in their path imposes the believer to so do as they are the smallest amongst the two weighty things that the Prophet (peace be upon him) commend us to refer to.

A woman wishes to work for a TV channel as an anchor or the like, and she will be required to apply makeup; is she allowed to do so?

It is not permissible for women to expose her face while having make-up in the presence of non-Mahram men in the mentioned case and in all cases.

Is it permissible to conduct a temporary marriage contract with a woman who is in her iddah period if they place a condition in the marriage that they will not have sex until the iddah is finished?

It is not permissible to conduct a marriage contract with a woman during her waiting period (iddah) even if they included a condition in the contact not to consummate the marriage.

If a person commits an act which his marja deems to be prohibited, and on Judgment Day it is discovered that the act was not actually a sin after all, will this person not be punished for it since the act was not prohibited? Or will he get punished because he disobeyed the edict of his marja?

The said person is not considered as disobedient, but is liable for proceeding to commit an act that he was informed to be a sin. An example of this is if a person drinks from a glass thinking it to be wine, but it turns out to be water.
