Yes you can request your passport back.
If your asylum is deemed pending, you can get an EAD.
The above is intended only as general information, and does not constitute legal advice. You must speak with an attorney to discuss your individual case.
Generally my experience is that it is difficult to get items back after you submit them for evidence in the immigration system.

The response given is general in nature and does not create an attorney / client relationship. The answer given may also not account for other facts unknown to the attorney. For a more detailed evaluation you should consult with a licensed immigration attorney.
You can always get a new passport from your consulate. As far as your EAD case goes, if the case was simply administratively closed, then no. If you were granted deferred action, then yes. Most likely, it was simply administratively closed. Best of luck to you (and congratulations on the PD).
Talk to you attorney about it. Some facts are missing and needed in order to answer you question.
