Is there any virtue in 786

Q: Is there any basis in Islam with regards to the numbers 786 representing Bismillah hir Rahmanir Rahim? Many people say that this is correct but I have not seen any authentic hadiths supporting this claim.


A: There is no virtue. It is just a numerical value.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
