Glory To The One and Only Lord...

As-Salaam alaikum,

The second verse/Ayat of Surat Ikhlas of the Holy Qur'an (112:2) reads:-- "ALLAHU SAMAD".  Now, if Allah, Azzah Wa Jallah, is Samad, then we are the Samadiyya of Allah. The Samadiyya of Allah comes in 2 aspects, namely:--

(1) His Absolute Independence from all things.

(2) The Absolute Dependence of all things on Him.

Therefore when you lift up that glass/cup to drink water, it is only by and through the Mercy of Allah [as Rahman and Raheem] that your thirst can be quenched. This is the reality of things and the wisdom of our reciting the 'Basmala [Bismillahi Rahman, Raheem], when eating, drinking, driving etc

The way we understand and believe affects the way we behave and act. Does the fire have the power to burn or not?  When Prophet Ibrahim, alaihis-Salaat Was-Salaam, was placed into the fire by his enemies, what happened? It became Bardan Wa Salaman, a place of security and tranquility.... because Alllah Ta'ala Creates, Controls and gives effect every single second, to every single Creation, at any time He Wishes.

When we, as servants of the Creator, say 'Bismillahi Rahmani Raheem', we affirm the reality of things... ie that it is ONLY by and through the Mercy of Allah, do things occur, including quenching your thirst with a cup of cold water. And by our affirming this with faith in our reciting the Basmala, Allah then sends His Baraka (Blessings) upon the acts we do. Note this well...
