Surely, those who believe (in the Qur'an), And those who follow the Jewish (scriptures), And the Christians,
the converts; anyone who (1) believes in God, and (2) believes
in the Last Day, and (3) leads a righteous life, shall have their reward with their Lord: on them Shall be no fear, nor shall they grieve. (Qur'an 2:62)

ALLAH (GOD): "Allah! there is no god but He the living the Self-subsisting Eternal. No slumber can seize Him nor sleep. His are all things in the heavens and on earth. Who is there can intercede in His presence except as He permitteth? He knoweth what (appeareth to His creatures as) before or after or behind them. Nor shall they compass aught of His knowledge except as He willeth. His throne doth extend over the heavens and the earth and He feeleth no fatigue in guarding and preserving them. For He is the Most High the Supreme (in glory)." (Qur'an: Translation of the meaning, 2:255)

BIOGRAPHY OF PROPHET MUHAMMAD (pbuh) - the last Messenger

Prophets in Islam are revered, respected individuals which were chosen by God to bring His Message to their people.

In the case of Prophet Muhammed (peace be upon him), he was chosen to give his Message to all mankind. Every Prophet came to relay the same message to their people, which was to worship God alone, associating no partners with Him.

Islam, is the final message for mankind, complete in every way.

As God mentions in the Quran:
"This day have I perfected your religion for you and completed My favor unto you, and have chosen for you as religion al-Islam. ..."
Surah al-Ma'idah 5:3.112

When Muslims mention the name of any Prophet, out of respect, they make a supplication for them asking that God bestow His Peace and Blessings upon them.

Another way in which Muslims show respect for the Prophets and Messengers of God is they do not draw pictures of them. 

In addition, they do not approve of actors portraying Prophets in movies. Muslims believe that it is disrespectful to any Prophet of God for an actor to portray them.
