The word “Muslim” means the one who submits to the Will of God, declaring that “there is no one worthy of submission except the One God and Muhammad is the messenger of God.” Thus, all the prophets including Adam, Noah, Abraham, Moses, David, Solomon, Issac, Ishmael, Jacob, John the Baptist, Jesus and Muhammed (peace be upon them all) are considered Muslims. Why do we say this? A Muslim means what? One who submits to the will of God. All the Prophets & Messengers throughout their mission did what? Nothing but submitted to the will of God. Therefore by definition and by practice they were all Muslims. The Qur’an (the divine scripture of the Muslims) specifically mentions Prophet Abraham who lived long before Moses and Jesus saying that, “he was neither a Jew nor a Christian but a Muslim,” because he had submitted to the Will of God.
