"We do not differentiate" refers to beliefs not actions/experiences, just as "there is no compulsion in religion" refers to beliefs, not actions/experiences. All Prophets had the same beliefs, which is why we do not differentiate between any of the Prophets, but each Prophet had different struggles. Just as the Quran advises Muslims not to criticize (differentiate) the beliefs of others, in case they criticize Allah (SWT) in return, "we do not differentiate" the single belief that all Prophet's shared. Prophet Muhammad (SAW) may have been stated to be the greatest of the Prophets by Allah (SWT) because of the greater struggles he faced throughout his life compared to other Prophet's and their respective struggles. The same can be applied to the Holy Women. Both of the the below verses that brother alimo40 stated refer to "belief" --> Verse 2:136 "We have believed in Allah and what has been revealed to us and what has been revealed to Abraham and Ishmael and Isaac and Jacob and the Tribes and what was given to Moses and Jesus and what was given to the prophets from their Lord. We make no distinction between any of them, and we are in submission to Him." Verse 2: 285 The Messenger believes in what has been revealed to him from his Lord, as do the men of faith. Each one (of them) believes in Allah, His angels, His books, and His messengers. "We make no distinction (they say) between one and another of His messengers." And they say: "We hear, and we obey: (We seek) Thy forgiveness, our Lord, and to Thee is the return." So, all the Prophet's had the same belief. Does this mean their station with Allah (SWT) was the same? No.
