Response to Shazia Kahnum
Let me begin with you end statement "One is in harmony with all natural laws (physical, spiritual & others) . Really? does one have to believe in an unseen God, to be in harmony with nature? (physical, spiritual & others). I can assure you that many good people today are in harmony with nature & found tranquility without any belief in a "God".
What has reality to do with the unknown?

I am sorry, anyone reading you response will come to the conclusion that you are just another apologist for Islam.

If you are a true believer of Mohamed and his message; you cannot deviate from it and interpret it to suit your needs, ask any Islamic scholar and they would agree with me. Its absolute - no deviation, period.

Why on earth would any devotee of God want to be a 'Muslim"? When the Muslim God (Allah) is so demanding & vengeful & calls for blood.

All other religions leaders led exemplary lives, preached peace, love, compassion and good will towards all humans - but not Mohamed. If as you say you believe in the Quran and the hadiths. Any one reading them will conclude that Mohamed was a violent, unforgiving individual. The hadiths are full of the glorification of beheading captives, killing anyone whom he perceived as his enemy, including old men, robbing and pillaging. He had sex with whomever he fancied even the 9 year old daughter of his best friend. Other captured women were distributed amongst his friends as sexual slaves, it was alright to rape these captives. Its full of vile hatred and judging by any human standard of any time in human history, the acts committed by Mohamed are very uncivilized.

Any (normal) just person will conclude that Mohamed was an evil man not akin to any of the other religious leaders.That is why any criticism of Mohamed is considered blasphemy punishable by death. So no one dares to air their views in Muslim countries.
I agree with you, one does not need a "book" to live an exemplary life, especially the quran. From what you write one gathers that you have your very own version of Islam (any Islamist would consider you an apostate), to suit your needs
