Nazia : "Rasool". does not mean message in arabic nor quran used it that way any where. Arabaic word for message is "resala". the two words are not interchangeable.

You said that Mohammed was an ordinary man. No he was not anordinary man. He was one of the most violent man who ever lived. He earned his livlihood by killing and robbing people.He , lied,looted pillaged, asassinated , massacred and raped uder the guise of Allah's revelations. All accounts about him are from muslim sources and are already biased in his favour.

Quran and hadiths are from the same sources of sahabas compiled many years after Mohammed's death. Quran was collected and put in a book form after rejecting many different compilations ( by Ali, Masud, Abbas etc) by a commitee in Usman days. Although hadiths and siras were also recorded at the same time by many scholars in different books but were never given an official status until Bukhari compilation. The following are the three earliest historians who recorded sira and magazi, whose works were used later in hadiths and history:

1. Aban b. Usman,son of third caliph Usman.
2. Urwa b. Zubair , a cousin of Mohammed, is considered an authority of sira and early history of islam.Ishaq , Tabari and Saad used his references.
3.Wahab b. Munnabih collected isnads during Ali's khilafat.
By denying hadiths and sira , you deny the written history, and jurisprudences of the sunnis (Hanafi, hanbali, maliki and shafaii) and shias.

Did Allah deliver you the quran directly? Only through sira and hadiths you came to know about Mohammed and methods and the sources of quran's compilations. For your info. the earliest copy of quran available is from Abbasid's days. Do you know that several ayas written on Baitul Muqaddus, on earliest coins and a 7th century parts of quran recently found in a Sana excavation are missing from the current quran ?
