This part of the study evaluates findings from different scholars regarding the concept of religious asceticism in the Abrahamic religions. In this regard, the literature review analysis builds a strong background as to why and how the three different Abrahamic religions practiced religious asceticism, the reasons for these differences, and the impact of religious asceticism in each of religion. This is especially with regard to the fact that the three Abrahamic religions observed three different religious practices, irrespective of the fact that they were drawn from the same Father of Faith (Abraham). Judaism is drawn from the Jews, the ‘Children of Israel’, which is also the birth tribe or ethnicity of Abraham. The Islamic and Christianity religions were born through the children of Abraham, Ishmael (Muslim) and Isaac (Christianity).
