Well it could be either fuel supply or electrical issue. Usually people have bad spark plugs ot timing belt. So first check the spark plugs, ignition cables then coil and roter. Then check timing belt. Then fuel filter and fuel pump. ***BUT*** when when u wrote that ur car can be pushed when in parked. It must be the gearbox!!! It can be cause by not properly switching gears. And that will be quite expensive.

That is definitely not a fuel or electrical issue, I'd almost put money on it being none of the above, except possibly the transmission. It sounds like the axle shaft broke, could also be the differential, extension shaft, or transmission. Most likely the axle shaft though, they are about $70 for a rebuilt one at about any auto parts store. Look on YouTube for videos of people replacing front wheel drive C/V axle shafts for a how to, it's a pretty simple job and can be done by anyone with basic mechanical understanding.
