Does one have to believe/agree with everything in Islam to be a Muslim?

First and foremost things is the pronouncement of—article of faith—-Shahadah.

Thereafter, in general, Islam demands for a “Blind Faith” in Unseen Allah, Angels, and the Hereafter; retribution, Hell and Heaven; along with the Prophet Muhammad as the last of the Prophets and Qura’an the Last Divine Un-Interpolated Scripture; a source of guidance and mercy, for the entire Human beings and Gene beings. One also has to believe in all the Prophets as and the Scriptures descended on them. Anyone falling short on any of these would not be considered a Muslim. (Q, 4: 150, 151, 152)

Indeed, those who disbelieve in Allah and His messengers and wish to discriminate between Allah and His messengers and say, “We believe in some and disbelieve in others,” and wish to adopt a way in between “

“Those are the disbelievers, truly. And We have prepared for the disbelievers a humiliating punishment”

“But they who believe in Allah and His messengers and do not discriminate between any of them – to those He is going to give their rewards. And ever is Allah Forgiving and Merciful”

Note: Jews and Christians who have already passed away before Islam would be judged on the basis of their Belief in Allah (His oneness) and Hereafter.
