The Aaronic Blessing – Numbers 6:22-27 – The Message
22-23 God spoke to Moses:
“Tell Aaron and his sons, This is how you are to bless the People of Israel.
Say to them,
24 God bless you and keep you,
25 God smile on you and gift you,
26 God look you full in the face
and make you prosper.
27 In so doing, they will place my name on the People of Israel—
I will confirm it by blessing them.”

According to Wikepedia:
Azaan or adhan is called out by a muezzin from the mosque five times a day, traditionally from the minaret, summoning Muslims for mandatory (fard) worship (salat). A second call, known as iqama, (set up) then summons Muslims to line up for the beginning of the prayers. The main purpose behind the multiple loud pronouncements of adhan in every mosque is to make available to everyone an easily intelligible summary of Islamic belief. It is intended to bring to the mind of every believer and non-believer the substance of Islamic beliefs, or its spiritual ideology.
In modern times, loudspeakers have been installed on minarets for this purpose.
The adhan recites the Takbir (God is great) followed by the Shahada (There is no god but God, Muhammad is the messenger of God). This statement of faith, called the Kalimah, is the first of the Five Pillars of Islam.
According to Wikepedia:
The unifying characteristic of Abrahamic religions is that all accept the tradition that God revealed himself to the patriarch Abraham.
All are monotheistic, and conceive God to be a transcendent creator and the source of moral law.
Their religious texts feature many of the same figures, histories, and places, although they often present them with different roles, perspectives, and meanings.
Believers who agree on these similarities and the common Abrahamic origin tend to also be more positive towards other Abrahamic groups.
In these Abrahamic religions the individual, God, and the universe are highly separate from each other.
The Abrahamic religions believe in a judging, paternal, fully external god to which the individual and nature are subordinate.
One seeks salvation or transcendence not by contemplating the natural world or via philosophical speculation, but by seeking to please God (such as obedience with God’s wishes or his law) and see divine revelation as outside of self, nature, and custom.
Christianity differs somewhat in that it includes the key tenant of ‘salvation by grace‘ and not through seeking to please God or by good works. Obedience for the Christian is expected as a natural response to having received salvation. This tenet is based on the Abrahamic principle of righteousness imputed by faith, and only through the provision of payment for sin by Jesus’ sacrificial death as the promised Messiah.
