 The second verse of Surat Ikhlas of the Holy Qur'an (112:2) reads: "ALLAHU SAMAD". If Allah is SAMAD, then we are the SAMADIYYA of Allah. The SAMADIYYA of Allah [Most High] refers to 2 aspects, namely:--

    1) His absolute Independence from all things.

    2) The absolute dependence of all things on Him.

Thus when you lift up that cup/glass 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 etc The way we understand and believe affects the way we bahave and act. Does water remove thirst? Does the fire have the power to burn or not?

 When Prophet Ibrahim, peace be upon him, was placed into the fire by his enemies, what happened? It became 'BARDAN WA SALAAMAN', a place of security and tranquility.... because Allah, Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala, creates, controls and gives effect every single second, to every single creation, at any time He Wishes.
