Islam

Do all Muslims believe the same thing?

Definitely not an expert, but I know there are some major disagreements between Sunni and Shiite Muslims regarding the proper line of succession after Muhammad which impact their beliefs in a lot of different ways.

Plenty of differences regarding lots of aspects of Islam. Like Christians there are differences in interpreting scriptures, differences in understanding how to relate to nonbelievers, differences in religious ritual (especially regarding dress), and differences in practising religious codes (like alcohol abstinence and what this means when applied).

Muslims are quite diverse.

There is a quite a bit of division (just like Christianity). However, I know nothing about the differences between the different schools and branches.

Islamic schools and branches

There are currently an estimated 1.25 *billion* adherents of Islam. That should pretty well answer the question.

I'm fairly certain there's nothing 1.25 billion people agree on.

Well, maybe that Muhammad is the prophet of Allah?

I would say all Muslims believe there is one God and Mohammed is his prophet, as this is the central confession of Islam. (I would think if they couldn't make the confession, they couldn't be classified as Muslim.)

Some variations of Islam are quite antagonistic to other variations.
I knew a family that came to Canada because they were the "wrong" type of muslim--according to the majority of Muslims where they emigrated from (Iran)
