Sure Allah's Messenger [sal] is crazy but it's a crazy world. It's just Muhammad's conception of the Mystery. Only problem is al-Ikhlas says that you can't conceptualise god: "and none is like unto Him" but we can't not conceptualise god can we? Don't we approach everything through language? And anyway it's contradictory cause there are hadiths that say you can see God.
I think Muhammad just thought about the world and how there's beautiful cannabis plants and yet children starve; then he wrote the Koran. How many times does the Qur'an say "Reflect upon...." something. Trees? Stars? I think even the camel is mentioned in there. That's why you have such a dichotomous approach because this was his way of making sense of the beautiful tragedy that's life. Even the names of Allah - al-Rahim and al-Dar, al-Wadud and al-Qahhar. This "kind/tyrant" approach is the same in all the Abrahamic religions.
Then you have people like ibn Arabi and Haji Bektash who just had a totally new religion even though they quoted Coran. And they have Sunni and Shia fans who look to them and think - yeah, this way I can follow something good but still not have to ditch that Muhammad and Islam bagagge that I've been saddled with. In times gone by it was easier to ignore the more evil hadiths etc. (they weren't online) so we could even believe in the "Muhammadan Reality" and shit. Now that the Muhammadan reality is known, in the more mundane sense, the Honorable Elijah Muhammad (PBUH) and Clarence Allah (SWT) are now finding acceptance among non-African Americans in an attempt to distance oneself futher still from Muhammad's sunnah.
I googled Clarence Allah and saw this youtube video. I don't think I have lol'd more in my life. I can never look at Wu-Tang the same way anymore:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uKgbA0Rmnsw
They use phrases like As Salam Aleikom, INshallah for a guy that that uses Allah as a surname. Reminds me of a Ras Kass Song
