The Arabic letters were divided following a certain numerical values given to each of the consonants. Be sure you must have come across the following words which have no meaning themselves before you started the Quran proper.

أبجد/ هوز/ حطي/ كلمن /سعفص/ قرشت/ ثخذ/ ضظغ

In the above arrangement, each of the consonant in the groups is allotted a specific number, viz
alif=1   baa=2   jeem=3   daal=4  haa=5     waaw=6   zaa=7  haa=8   taa=9  yaa=10
kaaf=20  laam=30  meem=40  noon=50  seen=60  ‘ayn=70  faa-80  saad=90  qaaf=100
raa=200  sheen=300  taa= 400  thaa=500  khaa=600  dhall=700  daa=800  zaa=900  ghayn= 1000 so
بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم will be baa=2  seen=60  meem=40  alif=1  laam=30  laam=30  haa=5  alif=1  laam=30  raa=200  haa=8  meem=40    noon=50  alif=1  laam=30  raa=200 haa=8  yaa=10  meem=40

If you sum up the numbers;
2+60+40+1+30+30+5+1+30+200+8+40+50+1+30+200+8+10+40=786

In This Book he links the 19 letters of Bismillah with 19 guardians of Hell. Other scholars did not question the number of letters in Basmalah until after the discovery of the the mathematical miracle of the Quran.
