Mohammed sww was the final messenger of Allah swt and he came to spread the message to all of mankind. The other prophets brought their messages to their own people only. If Muslims believe he was the final one, there by logic it means there were more before him and there were more than 100,000 of them.
Stick with the facts, no one was called a Muslim before Mohammed and no one had his particular views regarding religion. Before Mohammed there were the Jews and the Christians. What you are saying is that Jews and Christians are Muslims, that is offensive, since Muslims deny the very essence of both religions
