NUMBER 786 (satanic temptations?)

.
Question:
.
I have seen most of the Asian people (Pakistani and Indian) give importance to the number 786; they say that it symbolises shahada (that there is not God, except Allah). Should I give importance to that number? Please refer me to Hadith or Qur'an in addition to your opinion.
.
Fatwa:
.
Praise be to Allah, the Lord of the Worlds; and blessings and peace be upon our Prophet Muhammad and upon all his Family and Companions. This act is no more than a myth and there is no evidence that supports it in Sharia. This is merely a form of satanic temptations or an innovation of some ignorant Muslims. The glorification of Allah should be by practicing His commands, keeping away from His prohibitions, fearing His punishment and seeking His reward and Paradise. The glorification of Allah should be by honouring His Book, the Qur'an, reciting it precisely and applying it in real life. The glorification of Allah should be by respecting His Messengers (Blessings and peace of Allah be upon them) by following their orders, believing in tidings they brought, avoiding what they banned and worshipping Allah as they taught. So, a Muslim should not follow such myths and innovations. Allah has stated in the Holy Qur'an that the evidence of the love of the Prophet lies in obeying him. Allah Says (Interpretation of meaning):
.
(Say (O Muhammad to mankind), if you (really) love Allah, then follow me. Allah will love you and forgive you of your sins. And Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful).
.
We should avoid all kinds of myth and innovation, awake up people's awareness to give them up, and we must do our best to refute them. Prophet Muhammad (Blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) said:
.
"If somebody tries to introduce into this faith of ours (Islam) something, which is not a part of it, is to be rejected (and that person is condemned)". [Bukhari and Muslim].
.
Allah knows best.
