Dear Nuray: First of all there is nothing about Mohammed's life in quran so how do you know who he was, when and where he lived and that he was a great guy.? How do you even know when and who compiled quran. Quran says obey and follow Mohammed(4.80), he is your example(33.21), his character is a standard(68.4).The only source to carry out Allah order in quran to obey and follow Mohammed's example is hadths and sira.So by denying hadiths you are denying quran and thus commiting apostacy punishable by death (4.89).

. Besides quran was not dropped from sky. It was compiled from Mohammed's own sayings about 25 years after his death after a lot of controversies and after burning five other compilations by other reliable sahabs like Ali, Masood and Abbas which differed from th current quran( compiled by Thabit on Usman's order).. They dont even have the original compilation today. Earliest copy is 150 years after Usman. Experts believe that even that compilation was changed by Ummaiyads and Abbasids as ayas on coins and on old mosques dont match with current quran.

Besides What is the proof that Allah was talking to Mohammed? No body ever saw Jibraeel or Allah . There are repetitions, contradictions, abrogations, scientific blunders and lack of chronology and context in quran. Bottom line is Mohammed dictated the whole book.So even if quran said that Mohammed was a great guy , it does not mean anything . Any one can write that about himself.
