Yes, Muslims are commanded to respect all their Prophets. There have been around 124000 prophets of Islam which not only includes Muhammad (who is the last in the series of the Prophets) but also Jesus, Moses, David, Solomon, Abraham, Jacob, Issac, Ishmael, Joseph and many other Prophets that are mentioned in Quran.

PS: Note, not all prophets have been mentioned in the Quran except for few
