That will work for directories with few files, but eventually your ./xyz/abc/*
URL might expand to more arguments than you shell can handle. That will break
A more general approach would be to do line this:
for file in `find /xyz/abc/ -maxdepth 1`; do source $file; done
as it will not be limited by your shells ability to expand more than x matches
