    I don't understand what you're asking. I recommend providing an SSCCE that demonstrates exactly what you're talking about.

    I think you are asking:
    If you can not create an object of an abstract class, why can an abstract class have a constructor?
    ...and if that is the question;
    Because you can add code inside that constructor so that it is done for all classes that extend the abstract class.
