dhimmi no more (interesting nick-name)- English is not my first foreign language and may be there were some mistakes from my side. I'll try answer to your comment.

There are also Bible and Tora exegetics. Does it mean that Bible and Tora have also no sense?

About miracles. There could be many interpretations. But in my opinion it were arab historians and theologians who invented those hadith to show that our prophet can also make miracles. It was episode in the discussion between Christians and Muslims.

About Adam: I heard that in a mosque, in a sermon. I moreover, there is a Qoran exegetic from Saudi Arabia, where in introduction he says, that he also uses Bible as a source for exegetic. That's why you don't need to inform a Mufti, he knows that already.

Bible and Tora are not fully corrupt. You can hear that also from Saudi Muftis. One more time, if they don't contradict to Quran, they can be also used.

By founded I mean institutionalized. There should be a central authority which is making coins. Well why there are no US dollars in 14th century? Because there were no USA which could produce that money. That's why there were no coins.
