We should differentiate between Islam and Muslims. Islam could be understood via the Quran and the tradition of Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him). Muslims could follow that and they could follow the whims and their wrong interpretations.
Sharia, literally, is the way; the Islamic way of life.
It is about ethics; it is about worship; and in in the society it is about justice, common good and wisdom.
Shariah is divine but the application is human
