The NUMERICAL VALUE  

(Source: The Universal History of Number, by Georges Ifrah)

The Arabs have frequently used a system of Numerical Notation in which each letter of their own alphabet has a specific numerical value. According to F. Woepke (1863 - The Historian who is expert in the history of number), They " seem to have considered (this system) as uniquely and by preference their own".

They call this " huruf al jumal "  (calculating the total) which means something like " totals means of letter"

Another name of Numerical Value is what they call JEWISH "GEMATRIA" (possibly a corruption of Greek geometrikos arithmos, geometrical number).

For my web, I'd prefer to use NUMERICAL VALUE (easy to understand) than Gematria.

Here is
