One thing that I am struck by is that early Muslims must have had a huge inferiority complex concerning Christianity. This must be the reason for the second coming myth and attributing miracles to Muhammad (as well as the above) that one can read about in the hadith.

I think so as well.
I'm a Christian ... just letting you know.

Sound to me that the prophete did abolish rituels,  maybe , just maybe there was the salat satnding and bowing prostrating  without regulations , in the simplest way and the primitive ways, because Mohamed didn't want, or better allah didn't want Islam to be a religion with rites,  maybe the latter muslims were impressed about regulations in christianity and they fall in the trap, thinking make it look more serious and more religious, because we're talking about the period right after the fall of islamic civilisation, andalousia to baghdad , they changed from a life with no religion , to a liife full of rituels,  they left the quran, instead of staying free of rituals and continue living a normale life, they became like jews and christians ,  or maybe there was too many new converts with differents ideas that they influenced the other people, or finnaly, a great conspiracy that changed the way of Islam by introducing whatever they wanted in the hadiths and making anyone who doesn't follow the hadiths is an apostate,  well, they had the power after all

All these are just my understanding
