Assalam alaikum,
The second Ayat of Surat Ikhlas of the Holy Qur'an (112:2) reads:-

   "ALLAHU SAMAD" - meaning Allah is Eternal and Absolute.

If Allah is SAMAD, then we are the SAMADIYYA of Allah. This is in 2 respects, namely:--

1) Allah is Absolutely Independent of all things.

2) All things are Absolutely Dependent on Allah.

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 or drinking.

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 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, 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, do things happen/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. Note this well.
