Number 786 is NOT sacred

MISCONCEPTION: Number 786 is sacred in islam.

REALITY: Number 786 has nothing do with islam. It has been popularized by films. In Quran almost all chapters starts with the statement – Bis millah Al rahman Al Raheem which means In the name of Almighty God, most compassionate, most merciful
In every language there is numerical value assigned to each alphabet. Similarly in Arabic language there is numerical value assigned to each alphabet. If we sum all the numerical value assigned to each letter of Bis millah Al rahman Al Raheem then the sum comes to 786. But that does not mean that 786 is sacred or writing 786 EQUALS to Bis millah Al rahman Al Raheem.

The sum 786 can be achieved in number of ways, in different kind of words.
For example – Suppose, just an example: Assume that in English language numerical values are assigned as A=4, B=30, D=10, O=1, G=32
GOOD – 32+1+1+10 = 44
BAD- 30+5+10 = 44

So we can get same number 44 by summing up numerical values of two OPPOSITE words. Hence number 44 does not means GOOD or BAD.

Similarly if, by calculating numerical values of Bis millah Al rahman Al Raheem we get 786 then it DOES not means that 786 is equivalent to saying Bis millah Al rahman Al Raheem. Hence 786 IS NOT EQUAL TO Bis millah Al rahman Al Raheem. This is just a popular myth that 768 is scared.
