> You said it yourself, the prophet's path - to be a good muslim is to strive to be like the prophet Muhammed, becuase he was the human implementation of the Quran.
It would have to be 'strive' because I know I can't sleep an entire night on my right side.
Did Muhammed wait until girls where a certain age before making them his wife?
Anyways, you've got the same problem as those christians over there: all you have is a book written by some people and also some other people telling you how to interpret what's written.
If you read the Quran withough professional 'guidance', you may end up coming to wildly different conclusions. Conclusions like Allah wants you to slaughter all christians.
This isn't limited to Islam, it applies to all religions with scripture.
