According to you, Muhammad "led a simple life, with little to eat and had very ordinary attire". Since Muhammad led a simple life, how was it possible for him to have 23 wives and lead his army in over 70 wars, robbing caravans, raping women and slaughtering Jews and Arabs. By the way, if you had 23 wives, would you have time to eat?

If Muhammad led a simple life, why did he find it necessary to have sex with his daughter-in-law, Zainab, a daughter of his Aunt, and who happened to be married to his adopted son, Zaid Bin Mohammed?

One morning, Muhammad walked into Zainab's room looking for his son and saw her while she was just waking up and still in her bed. He lusted for her and forced his son to divorce Zainab and had her in his bed within a few days. Now that is a straight path.
Why, Mansoor, are you so deeply hurt? Is it because you are learning the truth about Muhammad, the beloved Prophet with unmatched qualities?
