There isn't any such religious requirement other than that. It follows only from the rule that when a Muslim is given aman by the disbelievers they are bound by a pact, and breaking of the contract or showing treachery is haram. وأوفوا بالعهد إن العهد كان مسئولا And fulfil (every) covenant. Verily! the covenant, will be questioned about — Quran 17:34 ...

Short answer you are right. It is actually the term used in the qur'an describing the people who follow Allah's guidance: Our Lord, and make us Muslims [in submission] to You and from our descendants a Muslim nation [in submission] to You.

The narrations you have quoted are not about praying to the Prophet instead of Allah, rather they are clearly praying to Allah and using the Messenger of Allah ﷺ as a wasilah.

By default exhuming human remains is forbidden because it is disrespectful to the deceased, hurtful to their family and considered abhorent by human nature.

ٱلسَّلَامُ عَلَيْكُمْ Greeting your brothers and returning their greetings is a must for for every muslim.

There isn't any room for non-Shariah courts under Shariah law, as there is prohibition and severe condemnation of using any other man-made law: وأن احكم بينهم بما أنزل الله ولا تتبع أهواءهم And judge between them by what Allah has revealed and do not follow their inclinations — Quran 5:49 ومن لم يحكم بما أنزل الله فأولئك هم الكافرون And whoever does not ...

Best Is Surah Mulk as it gives one protection from the punishment of the grave.

Then he went to the Holy Prophet Hazrat Muhammad (P.B.U.H) and related the incident and his ...
