I apologize in advance if I misunderstood your post. I'm not 100% sure of what you meant by Islamic vs. Traditional laws, but I think I agree with
From what I've learned, Qur'an is the direct Word of God, unaltered, and it contains commandments as well as general guidance regarding how a Muslim
should live. The Hadith (and I'd like to broaden this to include the Sunna) are the sayings (and practices) of the Prophet Muhammad that Muslims are

Moving forward, not in Western terms, as wearing more revealing cloths and toning down laws, but moving forward to achieving Allah's cause.
thanks for the reply, and I'll eagerly wait for your response, either U2U, or in my profile.
