What is "786" ?

April 23, 2008 9:09pm CST
Hi All, I want to know why Mohammedan people use "786", i heard that it is from the holy book of "Kuran", but i want to know the meaning, what is it a number of para, what is the meaning. I belive this is like "OM" for Hindus, every thing should start with Gods name. well "Om " has a meaning then "786" should also have some meaning. Please Share. I am sorry if i have used any wrong words or hurt your felling. Please forgive me !!

786 has nothing to do with Islam, and it is nowhere mentioned in Islam. Some people use it as a number that replace "Bismillahi Rahmani Raheem"(In the name of Allah, most gracious most merciful). I disagree with such things, and no logic in it.

Hi Yogeshdhusa I'm muslin man from Egypt. It is the first time i hear about the "786" and i think it doesn't mean anything. Maybe someone try to make number analysis and think it means something but for real we don't believe in these signs as they said. Our Holy Kuran is a book from our God " Allah " this book guides you in life and contains all Islam rules.So no place for these question about what is this number or this word means. Maybe you ask what this Sentence means it is better because you can't pull a word out and ask about meaning. Plz contact me for any further discussions about Islam maybe I help you. Peace be on you
