Both of you seem bent upon somehow 'proving' that Koran/Sunnah/Hadith is Islam.

No, that is incorrect.

Let me ask you one question..

"If Koran is Islam, then why not Mohammad (pbuh) organized it as a book within his lifetime.. why did he not instruct anyone to compile it within his lifetime"?

You cannot answer this question, simply because Mohammad was not 'fixed' on Koran as the current Wahabist is. And he himself said that he was an ordinary human who made mistakes. So the assumption of the wahabist to 'copy' his life on a minute-to-minute basis is simply absurd.

A few points to ponder...
