  • Glory Be To The One and Only Creator.

    Peace to one and all,
    The 2nd verse/ayat of chapter 112 of the Holy Qur'an (Surat Ikhlas) reads:-- 'ALLAHU SAMAD' If Allah Ta'ala is SAMAD, then we are the SAMADIYYA of Allah. The SAMADIYYA of Allah refers to 2 aspects:--

    (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 [ Bismillahi Rahamani Raheem ] when we start eating or doing whatever. 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 or not?

    When Prophet Ibrahim, alaihi Salaat Was-Salaam, 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.

    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 Ta'ala, do things happen and/or 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 Blessings (Baraka) upon the acts we do.
