I have read that for making the hand tahir by qaleel water, it is necessary to pour the water on the hand, and when the water flows off the hand the hand will become tahir. Does this apply to all body parts as well as the penis? What if the najasah is urine?
Yes, the separation of water from the najis object is a condition in the process of purification if the water used is little (qaleel). This ruling is the same for all parts of the body, including the penis. If the najasah is urine then one needs to purify the najis object twice when little water is used.
If one makes a mistake in pronouncing something during the prayer, may he carry on and ignore it? Or must he go back and correct it?
He should return to recite it correctly and continue his recitation. However, if he realized the mistake when he entered the bowing or prostration, he cannot return, and he should continue with his prayer.
Why did God create humans? Did he want to achieve his goal that humans should worship and love him willingly?
The Holy Quran states clearly the reason for creating humanity: "I created the jinn and humankind only that they might worship Me." (51:56)
