786 as Bismillah

Posted by Abd Al Mustafa on Thursday 29th January, 2009

The objection that using 786 is a novelty. This is correct but so is the spread of printed matter and worldwide literacy. The Sunna way in this regard is to find ways to curb the risks of heedlessness and disrespect to sacred things in print. The use of 786 is one such way. A better one is to write the Arabic letter Ba’ to stand for the Basmala or to write: Bismihi Ta`ala = “In his Name, Most High.”
