I understand this to mean that they gave up their life of idol worshipping. Had Abraham continued with the family tradition he would have become a notable person in the religion of his day, even chief priest. He "sacrificed" all of this for belief in one God

2:131 When his Lord said to him, “Submit (your will) to Me!”, He said, “I submit to the Lord of the Worlds.”
2:132 This very legacy Abraham left to his children, and so did Jacob, saying, “O My children! Indeed, God has chosen for you the Way of Life. Therefore, let not death overtake you except that you are Muslimoon (Submitters).”
[Deen = The Divinely Prescribed System of Life = Al-Islam. It has more to do with the collective life of humans and the science of sociology. It concerns itself with people living in this world collectively in peace according to a Code of permanent values that ensures success in both lives. Religion (Mazhab) is more of a generic term signifying a creed involving certain rites and rituals and seeking individual salvation. Islam being a Collective System of Life is, in fact, a challenge to religion]
