Some people use 786 as the "mathematical" value of "BismillahirRahmanirRaheem" t hey have computed it to be 786 by someone named Rashad

Khalifa, hence people beg an using it. That is a calculation to the Arabic letters in Hisab Al-Jummal (gematrical calcu lation). Allah knows if it's valid to use it for Qur'an. I would not. But I will explain further how this works. Hisab al-Jummal is a cacluclation that assigns every letter in Arabic a digit. Alif = 1 Ba' = 2 ... and so on. But the sequence is: 1,2,3... to 10, 20 - 100, 200 - 1000 The letters would be as follows: : ( =1) ( =2) ( =3) ( =4) ( =5) ( =6) ( =7) ( =8) ( =9) ( =10). : ( =20) ( =30) ( =40) ( =50) ( =60) ( 70) ( =80) ( =90) ( 100). : ( =200) ( =300) ( =400) ( =500) ( =600) ( =700) ( =800) ( =900) ( =1000).

Scholars used to say a line of Poem, and at same time that line would give a sec ret code of when that poem was authored. Example: A poet used it in talking about the rules of Tajweed. He made a poem stating the rules of the Arabic letters, and in the end of the poem he said:

2+300+200+10=512 30+40+50 = 120 10+400+100+50+5+1 = 566 The last stanza means "the date of this poem is a good tiding to the one who mas ters it". That in Arabic, when calculated in Jummal calculation, gave the year h

They will say a line of poem instantly that h as a beautifull meaning and at the same time gives you a the date or time using Hisab al-Jummal. Islamic poets are very inteligent. Which was year 1198 after Hijrah.e aughtored that book in. .
