In the Name of Allāh, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy

Ibn Taymīyyah (d. AH 728) said: 

Whoever believes in Muḥammad (ṣallallāhu ʿalayhi wa-sallam), has indeed believed in every Prophet. And whoever obeyed him has indeed obeyed every Prophet. Whoever belied him, has indeed belied every Prophet. And whoever disobeyed him, has indeed disobeyed every Prophet.1 

The Most High, said: 

«Verily, those who disbelieve in Allāh and His Messengers and wish to make a distinction between Allāh and His Messengers (by believing in Allāh and disbelieving in His Messengers), saying: "We believe in some but reject others," and wish to adopt a way in between, they are in truth disbelievers.» 
[Sūrah al-Nisāʾ, 4:150]

And He, The Most High, stated: 

«Then do you believe in a part of the Scripture and reject the rest? Then what is the recompense of those who do so among you, except disgrace in the life of this world, and on the Day of Resurrection they shall be consigned to the most grievous torment. And Allāh is not unaware of what you do.» 
[Sūrah al-Baqarah, 2:85]
