The laws of Islam seem sufficiently detailed so as to preclude any possibility of "bad behavior," assuming that a person has made the "first choice" to follow Islam and live their life by the ways of Islam.
So how does choice fit into that equation? Is there enough latitude within the laws of Islam that a person can choose the shape of his or her life within the Islamic framework? Or does the framework itself more or less dictate the shape of one's life?
Note: I am not Muslim, so if you're going to quote scripture, please explain what that scripture means in layman's terms. Also note that I'm not looking simply for opinions, but also reasoning.
