Haykal - Numerical value - Abjad

Allah’u’abha

In The Summons of the Lord of Hosts, it is said in endnote 3 of paragraph 1.37 :
[3] The word Haykal (Temple) is composed in Arabic of the four letters Ha', Ya', Kaf and Lam (HYKL). Its first letter is taken to symbolize the word Huviyyah (Essence of Divinity); its second letter the word Qadir (Almighty), of which Ya' is the third letter; its third letter the word Karim (All-Bountiful); and its fourth letter the word Fadl (Grace), of which Lam is the third letter.

(Baha'u'llah, The Summons of the Lord of Hosts, p. 235)

Therefore I would like to know the numerical value in arabic of HAYKAL and the 4 words associated with H Y K L, that is :

1- Haykal (Temple)
2- Huviyyah (Essence of Divinity)

3- Qadir (the Almighty)

4- Karim (the All-Bountiful)
5- Fadl (Grace)

For example, in the arabic abjad or Al Simiyah numerical system BAHA الباحة = B+A+H+A = 2+1+5+1

What I would like to know is the equivalent arabic figures of these words :

1- HAYKAL = ?

2- Huviyyah = ?
3- Qadir = ?

4- Karim = ?

5- Fadl = ?

Thank you for your kindness.

Ha = 5
Ya = 10
Kaf = 20
Lam = 30

5+10+20+30=65

If you know what Arabic letters make up the other words, you can find their value here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Abjad_numerals

Thank you very much for the help EternalStudent9.

But I'm still perplexed because according to the Abjad :

* HA could be for 5 or 8

* and KAF could be for 20 or 100

That's why I think it would be more precise to know first the numerical values in arabic of the words :

- Huviyyah in which Ha is the first letter

- And Karim in which Kaf is the first letter

to be 100 % sure what are the figures.

We need someone versed in arabic and Abjad.

Good day.
