Yes ---Parents of Muhammad (saww) and Ali (as) were Muslims. It is written in Quran

Quran Yusufali 2:128] "Our Lord! make of us Muslims, bowing to Thy (Will), and of our progeny a people Muslim, bowing to Thy (will); and show us our place for the celebration of (due) rites; and turn unto us (in Mercy); for Thou art the Oft-Returning, Most Merciful.Quran Yusufali 2:129] "Our Lord! send amongst them a Messenger of their own, who shall rehearse Thy Signs to them and instruct them in scripture and wisdom, and sanctify them: For Thou art the Exalted in Might, the wise."This means that parents of Muhammad(saww) and Ali (as) were Muslims.I checked that all tribes of Mecca had Idols in Khana Kabba before accepting Islam but Bani Hashim DID NOT have any idol.

Here Allah confirms the above Dua of Abraham (as)

Quran 62:2] It is He Who has sent amongst an UMI messenger from among themselves, to rehearse to them His Signs, to sanctify them, and to instruct them in Scripture and Wisdom,- although they had been, before, in manifest error;-

Prophet Muhammad's father died before birth of prophet Muhammad (PBUH). Accordingly, Prophet Muhammad's father died before the prophesy of prophet Muhammad and before God revelation of Quran to Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). However, his father was believing in God (Allah). His father name is Abdullah which is an Arabic name that means 'slave of Allah (God)'.

The mother of prophet Muhammad died before revelation of Quran by God to prophet Muhammad and, accordingly, before Prophet Muhammad started calling people for Islam religion. However, she was believing in Allah (God name in Arabic)
