Nazia: You are sticking your head in sand by denying all sahih hadiths, and sira and making fun of the beliefs of billions of muslims who believe in them. Why would Ishaq whose father lived in the days of Mohammed lie about what he heard from him? Why would Bukhari who spent his life in checking the authenticity of hadiths lie.Why would Imam Tabari , the earliest muslim mfassir waste his time, why would the world follow tafsirs of Ibn Khatir and Maududi , and Suyuti's asbab e nuzool which are all hadith based.

Remember quran was compiled many years after Mohammed died from isnads of the same sources who said all the hadiths (neither Jibraeel dropped it in bounded form nor Mohammed compiled or proofread it). If those sahabas lied about hadiths how are you sure that they did not lie about quranic ayas? How do you know who Mohammed was? Methods of Haj and Salat are not in quran, you are trusting sources other than quran for it , arent you? Or you are a non praying type.
You know when aya says obey Allah and obey messenger, Mohammed is meant by messenger. Similarly the following aya says follow me, here your theory fails.

YUSUFALI: Say: "If ye do love Allah, Follow me: Allah will love you and forgive you your sins
Qyran also says:
PICKTHAL: Verily in the messenger of Allah ye have a good example for him who looketh unto Allah and the Last Day,.
Aya 68.4 says:
YUSUFALI "And thou (standest) on an exalted standard of character".

Where will you find that example from Nazia?

Obey Allah and obey message does not make any sense. Quran is in first person , spoken directly to man thus qura Allah's word. obey Allah means follow quran. Obey messenger means obey and follow Mohammed, the messenger.
(Every one called him rasool ullah, all hadiths refer to him as rasool or rasool ullah.Nowehere quran is referred to as rasool . Why would Allah call his message rasool, he called it quran. Your theory does not make any sense).

Like he showed how to do salat , Haj and lots and lots of other things considered a part of islam which are not in quran.
Yes there are "Quran only" people like you for eg submitters, tulu e islam, Hamdiyas etc.That is fine, more power to them , but dont call them islam. Main streamers call them heretics.
