ISLAM AND THE NUMBER 666
"In the name of Allah" = Bismillah = 666.
On the Zola Levitt program, Walid Shoebat, a former PLO terrorist said that when he saw the ancient Greek symbol for 666, he immediately read it as the Arabic character “bismillah” which means 'in the name of Allah'."

Below (left) are photos of Greek symbols for 666, from Free Jesus.net: The gold symbol (bottom and right) is Arabic for "Allah" when inverted and spun. Walid Shoebat, a former PLO terrorist, raised in the Arabic language, recognized the Arabic character the moment he saw the Greek symbol for 666. Additionally, crossed swords are a symbol for Islam. So in 666 we have both "Islam" and "in the name of Allah".
There is at least one sect of Islam that considers the number 666 as well as the number 19, to demonstrate the perfection of the Quran and the proof that Mohammed is the prophet of Allah. This seems to have been arrived at by a modern day computer "miracle" proffered by a Muslim named, Rashad Khalifa, interestingly, began his research in 1968, or as the "times of the Gentiles" were fulfilled in Jerusalem, when the Jews regained control of the Holy City in 1967. Khalifa's mathematical "miracle" was widely embraced by Muslims throughout the world, including the Middle East, when first brought forward. Submitters still believe Khalifa was a messenger of God. Could this Islamic 666 "miracle" be a warning from God to Christians, Jews, and Muslims, as yet another sign in regard to fulfilling the related prophecy in the Book of Revelation?
In the Muslim's words:
"The number 666 is highly publicized all over the world and it is associated with evil and danger.
However, it is not what it seems. It was a Satanic trick.
The trick was to prevent the people approaching the 666.
Satan knew that the 666 is the book of GOD and the people should be kept away from it.
According to his plan, he placed a bad image to the number 666."
"The number 666 mentioned in the book of Revelation 13:18 is a part of a satanic scheme to hypnotise the minds of Christians. It is intended to cast fear and evil.
The reason is to create the negative prejudice in the minds of the people when they witness the number 666, the truth.
The truth is that This Quran is the 666 , The Book from The Lord of the Universe."
"The First Sura in the Quran, 666, is Praise. This sura is the gift of GOD to us to establish Contact with Him through our daily Contact Prayers. "

This 666 connection is, however, just one minor latter day component of Bible prophecy pointing to the Middle Eastern Islamic empire as being, geographically, the leopard-bear-lion beast of Revelation 13. The seat of Islam today occupies the same geographical region as Daniel's successive lion, bear, and leopard kingdom "beasts".
Revelation 13:18 Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: [Islamic Empire] for it is the number of a man; [the prophet Mohammed] and his number [is] Six hundred threescore [and] six.
