  • Glory To The One And Alone.

    The second Ayat in Surat Ikhlas of the Holy Qur'an (112:2) reads: "ALLAHU SAMAD".
    If Allah [Almighty and Glorious is He] is SAMAD, then we are the SAMADIYYA of Allah. The SAMADIYYA of Allah refers to 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 when eating, drinking or when we start our chores.

    The way we understand and believe affects the way we behave and act. Does water remove thirst? Does the fire have the power to burn? When Sayyadina Ibraheem, peace be upon him, was placed into the fire by his enemies, what happened? It became 'Bardan Wa Salaman', a place of security and tranquility... because Allah, Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala, creates, controls and gives effect every single second, to every single creation any time He Wishes...

    When we, as slaves 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 happen/occur, including quenching your thirst with a glass of cold water. And by our affirming this with faith (Imaan) in our reciting the 'Basmala, Allah then sends His blessings (Baraka) upon the acts we do.
