Looks like issue is over your pay scale.
The issue is if each and word, ayet, surah of quran be applicable today, tomorrow and forever.
So many prophets stories, tribal issues, habbits, wars and many more issues do not exist today. We are forgetting that islam was a new concept to locals that time and this was the tone, ways, stories and directions were needed to thsoe tribes.
Mosses walk with Khizar, Kahf group, Israelies migration, Anulahb problem, women restrictions and hundreds of topics are in quran but ony for thsoe periods and people to understand. NOt applicable today.
What is applicable today: a research on interest system is needed ( muslim could not develop a parallal financial system but only keep saying interets is haram.
Family and society issues: Women's role should be discussed. Its impossible to chain women, they have to fly planes, jets and space missions. They need to be bankers, scietists and office personnel. Example: we cant have separate chemical or medicinal research labs for men and women separately.
Muslim have to accept man and women mix society. Any one against it is living in past.
Moral issues: lying, disrespecting, trading, profits, judicial outlines and all such million issues need to be outlined as per Quranic hints. Some are already in force.
In short we have to understand that Not every word is for today. Quran descended on prophet when he was fighting for survival, mission, tribes, wars, other regions influx, etc.
The infinite wisdom of all mighty gave some thing which helped start a new religion ISLAM.
