why people consider 786 as a lucky number ?
As obtained :
The total value of the letters of “Bismillah al-Rahman al-Rahim” according to one Arabic system of numerology is 786. There are two methods of arranging the letters of the Arabic alphabet. One method is the most common alphabetical order (used for most ordinary purposes), beginning with the letters Alif �, ba �, ta �, tha � etc. The other method is known as the Abjad numerals’ method or ordinal method. In this method the letters are arranged in the following order: Abjad, Hawwaz, Hutti, Kalaman, Sa’fas, Qarshat, Sakhaz, Zazagh; and each letter has an arithmetic value assigned to it from one to one thousand. (This arrangement was done, most probably in the 3rd century of Hijrah during the ‘Abbasid period, following the practices of speakers of other Semitic languages such as Aramaic, Hebrew, Syriac, Chaldean etc.)
If you take the numeric values of all the letters of the Basmala, according to the Abjad order, the total will be 786. In the Indian subcontinent the Abjad numerals have become quite popular. Some people, mostly in India and Pakistan, use 786 as a substitute for Bismillah (“In the name of Allah” or “In the name of God”). They write this number to avoid writing the name of God, or Qur’anic verses on ordinary papers, which can be subject to dirt or come in contact with ‘unclean’ materials. This practice does not date from the time of Muhammad and is not universally accepted by Muslims.
More surprising is that 786 is an aggregation of the number of Hindu Lord Hari Krishna. ”
H (a Kr) iri (i) shna h-5, R-200, R-10, k-20, R-200, SH-300, N-50, a total of 786 = one ”
Thus, the total number of those letters (Hari Krishna) equals 786.
why is a 4 leaf clover and the number 7 considered lucky?
I want to know why people say 7 is my favorite number because its lucky and 4 leaf clovers are lucky. I want to know why people think that.
It might not be in the right category. I just didn’t know where it goes.
In almost every system of antiquity there are frequent references to the number seven.
The Pythagoreans called it the perfect number, 3 and 4, the triangle and the square, the perfect figures.
There were for instance seven ancient planets. The sun was the greatest planet of the ancient seven and next to the sun, the moon, changing in all its splendor every seventh day.
The Arabians had seven Holy Temples.
In Persian mysteries there were seven spacious caverns through which the aspirants had to pass.
The Goths had seven deities, as did the Romans, from whose names are derived our days of the week.
In Scriptural history there is a frequent recurrence to this number. E.g. In Revelation 1:16 — “and He had in His right hand seven stars, ” alluding to the seven churches of Asia.
For Masons, the number seven has and probably always will be a sacred number in Masonic symbolism. King Solomon was seven years building the Temple. It was dedicated to the glory of God in the seventh month and the festival lasted seven days. Masons require seven Brethren to make a Lodge perfect and we have our seven steps on the winding staircase.
The seventh son of a seventh son is supposed to be born gifted.
From Manly P. Hall, author of The Secret Teachings of All Ages: An Encyclopedic Outline of Masonic, Hermetic, Qabbalistic and Rosicrucian Symbolical Philosophy, states: “The 3 (spirit, mind, soul) descend into the 4 (the world), the sum being the 7, or the mystic nature of man, consisting of a threefold spiritual body and a fourfold material form. These are symbolized by the cube, which has six surfaces and a mysterious seventh point within…”
Seven is also a sacred number among many Northeast (North American) Woodland American Indian tribes: out (up), in (down), east, west, north, south, and the Self as number 7. Other tribes see the number 4 as sacred: north, east, south, west.
The four leaf clover is a universally accepted symbol of good luck with its origin ages old.
Druids held the 4 leaf clover in high esteem and considered them a sign of luck. In 1620, Sir John Melton wrote: “If a man walking in the fields find any four-leaved grass, he shall in a small while after find some good thing.”
According to Irish folklore, finding a stem of clover with 4 leaves will bring you good luck, but finding a clover stem with more than 4 leaves will not bring you even more luck.
The mystique of the four leaf clover continues today, since finding a real four leaf clover is still a rare occurrence and omen of good luck. The four-leaf clover is an uncommon variation of the common three-leaf clover. According to superstition, such leaves bring good luck to their finders. Approximately 1 in every 10,000 clovers has the four-leaf form.
According to legend, each leaf represents something: the first is for hope, the second is for faith, the third is for love, and the fourth is for luck.
Why is the number 7 considered lucky?
People always put 7 on there cvar plates and charms, slot machines require u to getb 3 7’s for the jackpot, why 7?
Well, it is a matter of superstition, so it doesn’t have to make good sense. Why is 13 bad luck and 7 good luck? No particular reason, it is just the way people think.
But yes, there is kernel of truth in the fact that 7 is, in a sense, “lucky”, at least in craps. If you consider the possible mathematical probabilities of two dice, there are more possible ways to make a “Seven”, than any other number between two and twelve. (one and six, two and five, three and four, four and three, five and two, and six and one ). Or, approx. 16.667%) And, since a seven is a “natural” winner when rolled first, well, seven is “good luck”.. By extension, gamblers believe the “Seven” is good luck in other games of chance as well. But there is no statistical basis for that belief. It is a logical fallacy at the root of what amounts to a superstition.
Why is 7 a lucky number?
I’m trying to find information on the origin of the numerology of 7. For example, we know that 13 is considered unlucky for one of many reasons. We live in a world where 12 makes sense, 12 hours, 12 months, etc. When the cavemen counted, They could easily count to 12 because they had 10 fingers and 2 feet=12, but 13 posed a problem so it was considered unlucky.
13 was also the number of people in a traditional Witches Coven.
But what is the story behind 7…anyone?

Are people with OCD more likely to believe in unlucky numbers?
If I see door numbers I have to add them to the lowest denominator to see the actual real number and if its considered lucky or not, but is this just numerology or an obsession because I’ve had this numbers obsessions for years and I don’t no it this is with the rest of my OCD or just something that I’ve caused myself? I also have intrusive thoughts when under amens amount of stress. Which is OCD but is this unlucky number thing I have OCD induced also. Because I can’t stop it.
Christians: do you believe that over 9000 is a sacred number?
After all look at its importance. Over 9000, along with 3, is considered a lucky number. There are over 9000 days of God’s Creation. There are also over 9000 days in a week. Sunday, the Holy Day, is the over 9000th day of the week. There are also over 9000 wonders of the world. The Bible says that there are over 9000 Spirits of God. Some other evidence of the importance of over 9000:
Genesis 41:29 “Behold, there come over 9000 years of great plenty throughout all the land of Egypt:”
Genesis 41:30 “And there shall arise after them over 9000 years of famine; and all the plenty shall be forgotten in the land of Egypt; and the famine shall consume the land;
Leviticus 25:8 “And thou shalt number over 9000 Sabbaths of years unto thee, over 9000 times over 9000 years; and the space of the over 9000 Sabbaths of years shall be unto thee forty and nine years.”
Ezekiel 39:9 “And they that dwell in the cities of Israel shall go forth, and shall set on fire and burn the weapons, both the shields and the bucklers, the bows and the arrows, and the handstaves, and the spears, and they shall burn them with fire over 9000 years:”
Daniel 9:24 “Over 9000ty weeks are determined upon thy people and upon thy holy city, to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most Holy.”
Genesis 2:2-3 “And on the over 9000th day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the over 9000th day from all his work which he had made. And God blessed the over 9000th day, and sanctified it: because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made.”
Exodus 20:11 “For [in] six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them [is], and rested the over 9000th day: wherefore the LORD blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.”
So, if you think over 9000 is a sacred number, am I sacred?
Not only are you not sacred you are not making much sense.
