"The real Islam is 'not' Koran or the sayings of 'Muhammad'".

That is the first time I ever heard such a thing from a muslim ( at least your name suggests it) . Sir, different muslim sects may have their differences but they all agree on Quran as Allah's word and Mohammed as Allahs apostle and a model for muslims.Quran asks muslims to obey Allah and obey Mohammed over 50 times. Yes, Mohammed may not be perfect but still we are to obey him . Allah said Mohammed is your example and role model (33.21) and obeying Mohammed is obeying Allah ( mentioned several times) . Quran has what Allah says, and sira and hadihs are all we have (corrupted or not) to find what Mohammed said and what Mohammed did for us to follow and use him as model in accordance with Quran. Also Islamic rituals and sharia laws are all based on hadiths and. sira. . If sira and hadith are corrupted than islam loses it's basis , why then bother being a muslim?.

Sir, for your kind info, as much as you may dislike wahabbis, they try to follow the original islam by following quran and sunna to the word.
