Is there an apparent contradiction in the Quran. 

In verse 6.163 - the Prophet (saw) says he is the first Muslim:
[Quran 6:163] No associate has He; and this am I commanded, and I am the first of those who submit.

In verses 2.128-133, the Quran says Hz Ibrahim and his progeny are Muslims:
[Quran 2:127] And when Ibrahim and Ismail raised the foundations of the House: Our Lord! accept from us; surely Thou art the Hearing, the Knowing:
[Quran 2:128] Our Lord! and make us both submissive to Thee and (raise) from our offspring a nation submitting to Thee, and show us our ways of devotion and turn to us (mercifully), surely Thou art the Oft-returning (to mercy), the Merciful.
[Quran 2:129] Our Lord! and raise up in them a Messenger from among them who shall recite to them Thy communications and teach them the Book and the wisdom, and purify them; surely Thou art the Mighty, the Wise.
[Quran 2:130] And who forsakes the religion of Ibrahim but he who makes himself a fool, and most certainly We chose him in this world, and in the hereafter he is most surely among the righteous.
[Quran 2:131] When his Lord said to him, Be a Muslim, he said: I submit myself to the Lord of the worlds.
[Quran 2:132] And the same did Ibrahim enjoin on his sons and (so did) Yaqoub. O my sons! surely Allah has chosen for you (this) faith, therefore die not unless you are Muslims.
[Quran 2:133] Nay! were you witnesses when death visited Yaqoub, when he said to his sons: What will you serve after me? They said: We will serve your god and the god of your fathers, Ibrahim and Ismail and Ishaq, one Allah only, and to Him do we submit.

So either the Prophet and/or Allah was confused about who was the first Muslim OR we have to believe that Prophet Muhammad was truly Allah's first creation.

Interesting questions and even more interesting answer:

Shias believe that the first thing Allah created was the Noor of the Prophet (saw) and then He split it into 2 Noor (Prophet (saw) and Ali (as)).

Q: Where was this Noor housed since there was no creation. Even space, arsh, jannah, etc were not there.

A: The Noor was "like" (not was) the Shadow of Allah. It was everywhere Allah was.
