The word, Muslim, is defined in the Book of Hadith to exclude those believers that would kill Muslims.

The book of Hadith only defines those believers that do not harm Muslims to be Muslims. Or in other words, the definition of the word, Muslim, in the book of Hadith, does not include those people, such as, ISIS, that would kill non-Wahabi Muslims, to be Muslims. The following is the extract: (Book#2, Hadith#9)-Sahih Bukhari: Narrated 'Abdullah bin 'Amr: The Prophet said, "A muslim is the one who avoid harming muslims with his tongue and hands. And a Muhajir (emigrant) is the one who gives up (abandons) all what Allah has forbidden." As the phrase, A Muslim, is mentioned above with the phrase, avoids harming Muslims, it implies that the book of Hadith defines the word, Muslims, to be those believers that would not harm Muslims. Or in other words, the definition itself does not include those people that would harm Muslims to be Muslims.

As terrorists, i.e. ISIS, had killed many non-Wahabi Muslims, they would turn up to be excluded from the definition as mentioned above. The same is mentioned in Sahih Muslim below: (Book #001, Hadith #0065) Sahih Muslim: 'It is narrated on the authority of Jabir that he heard the (Holy Prophet) say: A muslim IS he from whose hand and tongue the muslim's are safe.' The phrase, Muslim's are safe, as mentioned here implies the security of Muslims. As the phrase, muslim's are safe, is mentioned here instead of the phrase, the muslim's are in danger, it implies that it does not include those people that would cause fellow Muslims to be in danger. Or in other words, the definition of the word, Muslim, as mentioned here does not include those believers, i.e. ISI, that would harm non-Wahabi Muslims, to be Muslims.
