When someone in real life embraces Islam and becomes a Muslim, he only comes back to what he had originally been and was always meant to be. He only sets things right again. He rediscovers himself. Thus, we do not say that a person converted to Islam...
The name has been given as followers of this religion of submission is a divine gift that God Almighty who named us as Muslims. And this name goes back before our own time and far before the time of Muhammad (peace be upon him). He was sometimes described in the Quran as ‘the first of the Muslims’.
