Indeed we are advised by the God to follow the religion of Abraham. However, Abraham was not a Jew or a Nazarene (or a member of the rogue Nazarene sect started by Paul who hijacked the name of Christ):

“And they said: ‘Be Jews or Nazarenes, you will be guided.’ Say: ‘But Abraham's religion submitter/monotheist, and he was not from those who take partners (with the God)" (Quran 2:135)

Abraham reached the truth by looking at nature and asking the God alone for guidance (not the clergy):

“…He (Abraham) said, ‘O my people, I denounce your idolatry. I have devoted myself absolutely to the One who initiated the heavens and the earth; I will never be one who takes partners (with the God).” (Quran 6:78-79)

In the Quran, clergymen are identified as partners with God. So this rules out any clergy-based religion such as Talmudic Judaism, Talmudic Islam (aka Sunni/Shia), and Paulianity. On the other hand, I believe that Jews, Nazarenes, Muslims, Deists, etc. who do not blindly follow the clergy and follow God alone are followers of Abraham.

Thanks and all best wishes.
