Because he submitted to God. That's what the word Muslim means.
He was the first Muslim among his people.
«We were the lowest of all people and then Allah gave us glory by Islam, and if we seek glory in anything other that what Allah has given us, Allah will disgrace us.» Umar ibn Khattab

Hi,

Why is Abraham considered the "first" Muslim?

Peace be upon you 'Pip Power',

Welcome to the blog.  Insha'Allah (if Allah Almighty is Willing), you will find the Truth of Islam here.  Ameen.

In regards to your question, it is Adam, not Abraham, who is called the first Muslim.  Islam started when mankind was created.  Please know that Islam is deeply rooted even in your Scriptures.  The original Faith is Islam, and the Believers' titles were Muslims, even in your Scriptures.  Please visit the following links for proofs:

The video in the second link is by a Rabbi who explains how the original believers in the Bible were called Muslims, and how Islam was the original Faith's title as well.

Take care,
Osama Abdallah
