Arabic is a pretty terrible language.

For starters it's right to left.
For enders it's right to left.

^ I agree. I'm really struggling. I've decided that I'm not able to teach myself Arabic. Granted I'm awful at language period.

During my learning of Islam, I've noticed that where a lot of differences in the schools of thought, isn't in the Qur'an (although, there are many interpretations of what's in the Qur'an) but instead from within the Hadith. Like I've seen really conflicting opinions from many different Muslims as to how seriously you should take the Hadith.
Some people believe that the Qur'an is the one true Hadith, that of Allah, and Mohammad's is therefore irreverent (See Qur'an 45:6 and Qur'an 77:50). And others saying that the Hadith, being the stories of The Prophet isn't the word of Allah, and therefore should be taken with a grain of salt and seen as a historical piece, painting a picture of the society that the Qur'an was revealed in, adding context to Qur'an and giving it more meaning. And then other people who say that everything Mohammad did, was the doing and will of Allah, so that everything in Hadith and Sunna should be followed closely.
These distinctions are SUPER important, because Sharia punishment is outlined in the Hadith. So the first group I mentioned would believe that your sins are between you and Allah on the day of judgement, and the final group would believe that Sharia law should be enforced.
Islam is such a nuanced and spectacular religion, and I'm struggling to take it all in, there's just so much. It's taken me a long time to even get through the Qur'an because I've needed to go to Muslims to give me context and teach me the meaning behind the words.

Any major religion is nuanced and spectacular. Islam just happens to have the best of 3 worlds.

Are you learning about other religions or just Islam?
