Abrahamic religions are the three religions (Christianity, Islam and Judaism) that trace their common origin to the patriarch Abraham. A hallmark of Abrahamic religions is that the final goal (heaven/paradise) is based on faith, obedience and/or good works, as opposed to the Dharmic religions (Buddhism, Hinduism, Jainism and Sikhism) which stress the importance of improving and refining one's consciousness and/or mentality.
The most famous event in Abraham's life was when he was willing to kill his own son because he believed God told him to. Since then, the lunatic fringe of the Abrahamic religions also answer the question "Will you kill for Me?" with a resounding "yes".
