Generally a Muslim is one who belongs to the religion of Islam and has faith in Allah and Prophet Muhammad and follows the ordainments of the Quran and the practices of Prophet Muhammad.
In the Quran too, the followers of the Prophet Muhammad are called Muslims in the same way as the followers of Prophet Moses are called the Jews and those of Jesus are called Christians.
However, there are more than a dozen verses in the Quran that show that the followers of all the Abrahamic religion are considered Muslims as they have faith in one supreme God and do not believe in false gods and goddesses or do not worship the Sun, the Moon, the mountains or the rains. Even the followers of prophets prior to Abraham were called Muslims. Therefore, all the prophets were Muslims, according to verses of the Quran. The Quran announces that God has christened His believers as Muslims.
