Assalam o Alaikum (Hey)
Almost All Over the world peoples believe that ’786′ is very important for Muslims.I know few peoples know the truth.
In Movies,TV serials shows,those have 786 in anything,they get help from Allah during problems.
Car No,Mobile No,Telephone No haveing ’786′ is sale in very high rate.
In Asia Normally,A Mobile No

with ’786′ Rate Cost 5000 INR,around 100 USD.
and those peoples are Muslim and NON-Muslims,Non-Muslims pays extra to get this nos.
So,What is the Importance of ’786′ in ISLAM.
Muslims says 786 = ‘Bismillaah al-Rahmaan al-Raheem’.
Is this really Important number?
Think “Bismillah” contain the name of GOD ‘ALLAH’.
Can a Number replace the Holy Name of Allah Subhanwan Tala. by 786?
Can we remove ‘Bismillaah al-Rahmaan al-Raheem’ from the top of Surah al-Faatiha and replace it with the number 786?
The innovation of writing ’786′ replacing ‘Bismillaah al-Rahmaan al-Raheem’ has been adopted for a long time and the majority of the Ummah is still indulged in it inadvertently.
’786′ don’t have any Value in Islam,as a True Muslims are Instructed to follow the words of Quran and teachings of Prophet Muhammad(Peace be upon HIM) and there is no discussion about 786 in Quran or in Hadith.
Apart from the common folk, the scholars also heed no attention towards it and to avoid disrespect to the Holy Words they use it in their letters and documents. They adopt it as ‘correct’ and ‘better’ way to invite Allah’s blessings and have also started replacing the Holy Words by this number on their houses, offices, buildings, etc.
Unfortunately, this tendency is gradually gaining momentum.
Do we see this number instead of the Holy Words in the Holy Qur’aan? Or, can we write it there as well? can we remove ‘Bismillaah al-Rahmaan al-Raheem’ from the top of Surah al-Faatiha and replace it with the number 786?
If we study the Qur’aan, we see it carries the holy words in a letter from Prophet Solomon (Preace be Upon HIM) to the Queen of Sheeba – Bilqis – who was an infidel at that time. Even Prophet Muhammad (Peace be Upon HIM) in his letters to different heads of states and governments, used the holy words at the top.
Therefore, Whose ever uses 786 with the intention to obtain Allah’s blessings, is a misguided person and any attempt to justify it, is ignorance.
More astonishing is that fact that ’786′ is an aggregation of the numbers of Hindu ‘Lord Hari Krishna’.
H(a)iri Kr(i)shna h-5, r-200, r-10, k-20, r-200, sh-300, n-50, a-1 = Aggregate of 786
Thus, the aggregate number of these letters (Hari Krishna) equals 786. This is also the case of ‘Bismillaah al-Rahmaan al-Raheem’. Therefore, it is necessary to avoid using this number to avoid the danger of being indulging in infidelity.
Islam’s foundation is laid on the belief in Tawheed (oneness of God). If we associate anyone with Allah’s exalted names orally or practically, we would be committing infidelity which is an unpardonable sin.
The Qur’aan warns us, one who finds a rival against Allah, Allah will never allow him to enter paradise, and his abode is the hell.
The letters by the Prophet (Peace be upon HIM) to non-Muslim Kings and chiefs bear the holy words ‘Bismillaah al-Rahmaan al-Raheem’.
This was also the case of his noble companions. Did the Prophet (Peace be upon HIM) and his companions respect the Holy Words less than we do? Was the verse, ‘Today I completed your religion for you’, revealed to the Prophet (Peace be upon HIM) or to the so called scholars of our age who are all bent to amend the Divine principles.
Now, when it became known that ’786′ is written in place of Hindu, ‘Lord Krishna’, and has no significance in the Holy Qur’aan and Sunnah, it is obviously an innovation and goes against the Divine doctrine of ‘Obey Allah and His Prophet‘.
Similarly, some Muslims replace Allah’s name by the number ’66′ and the Prophet’s (Peace be upon HIM) name by ’92′
this way we can convert Entire Quran in digits.Every character and saying names of Allah gives good deeds.What you will get If you will call ’66′ in place of ‘ALLAH’,
But if one ask, the number ’420′ is used against somebody’s name and he is called ’420′. Can he bear such an insult?
Calling someone by a nick name is a sin. Allah Ta’ala says, ‘Don’t call one another by nick names‘.
If Allah prohibits the use of nicknames for fellow human beings, how can He allow the use of such insulting replacement number for Himself and His Prophet (Peace be Upon HIM).
‘Bismillaah al-Rahmaan al-Raheem’ great significance in the Qur’aan and Muslims are ordered to begin any work but in the names Allah, not in the number of ’786′ or any other substitution.
