One of the commandments of the Quran is given in these words: “Believers, remember God with much remembrance.” (33:41). According to this Quranic verse, believers must remember God very much, every day and every moment. This is the greatest teaching of the Quran, and it is the highest form of worship. One who does this will be blessed with the greatest reward from God Almighty.
What is much remembrance of God? It is not in the sense of repetition of some word, but in the sense of thinking. Much remembrance or zikr-e-kathir is not a kind of lip service. It is rather a high kind of intellectual activity. Much remembrance is a sign of God realisation.
Remembering God much is a result of a chain reaction in the thinking process, that is, a series of thoughts in which each thought causes the next one. Zikr-e-kathir, or much remembrance, is a result of creative thinking. It is a product of a prepared mind. If you are a prepared mind, then your mind is bound to get triggered at every experience or observation. You will start discovering one item of God-realisation after another. In this way a chain reaction will be initiated in your mind.
So step-by-step, he will discover how God created various processes which finally provided him water to drink.
