What is the blessing of Abraham

The blessing of Abraham is God's blessing that Abraham will be exalted on earth and his descendants.

The descendant of Abraham is Jesus Christ himself and he will be exalted over the entire earth and bring forth his glory among nations.

Abraham made a covenant with God that all those who bless Abraham will be blessed themselves.

The religions based on this covenant are Judaism, Christianity, and Islam.

Hence, the ones who bless the adherents of these religions will also gain God's blessings.
