The first human, Adam (PBUH) was a Muslim

Muslim is a person who completely surrenders to his Creator and accept his Lordship.
When a child is born, it has with it a natural belief in ONE God. Human growing up without outside influences, when upon acquiring enough intelligence will naturally acknowledge that his creator is ONE and ONLY ONE. This natural belief is called “Din Al Fitrah” in Arabic.

The Prophet (saw) said that Allah (swt) said:  
“I created My servants in the right religion but the devils made them go astray.” ~ Saheeh Muslim
The Prophet (saw) said:  
“Each child is born in a state of “Fitrah”, but his parents make him a Jew or a Christian" ~ Saheeh Al-Bukhari, Saheeh Muslim
In Soorah Al-A'raaf, Verses 172-173; Allah explained that when He created Adam, He caused all of Adam's descendants to come into existence and took a pledge from them saying, Am I not your Lord? To which they all replied, " Yes, we testify to It:'

To be a true Human one should acknowledge and fulfil the rights of his Creator, his fellow Humans and other creation. Thus submit to the Will of God in earnest. One who submits to the Creator is a Muslim.
