Ahmad: If Muhammad did not want fame why does he want his name joined with Allah's?

If Muhammad did not want fame or money why does his name always follow Allah's like a shadow. Muslims seem unable to pronounce Allah without tagging Muhammed to it.

Bukhari Vol 1, Number 14: The Prophet said: None of you will have faith till he loves me more than his father, his children and all mankind."

The huge ego of your prophet is plainly visible in this authentic hadit. Mindless Muslims taking this hadith seriously go about killing and burning when anyone speaks against your prophet to show their love for him and reserve their place in paradise.

Muhammad even got Allah to send verses praising him. Read:

33:56 Allah and his angels send blessings on the Prophet: O ye that believe! Send ye blessings on him, and salute him with all respect.

A mere mortal elevates himself to a position where Allah and his angels sing his praises. Muhammad was just a poor orphan picked up by Allah as a relay agent for his messages. Why does Allah, who could have picked up anyone from anywhere on this earth and make him do exactly what he made Muhammad do, sing his praises. This verse just goes to show it is really Muhammad speaking and pretending it is Allah's message.

If Muhammad did not want money why did he take 20% of the booty from his raiding besides keeping 100% if the raided party surrendered without a fight?

If he did not want money why did Allah (i.e. Muhammad) send a verse asking his followers to pay him a consultation fee when they visited him?
