Just to add to the Maulana issue, I posted recently.
Chapter 66:04 says:
In tatooba ila Allahi faqad saghat quloobukuma wa-in tathahara AAalayhi fa-inna Allaha huwa mawlahu wajibreelu wasalihu almu/mineena waalmala-ikatu baAAda thalika thaheerun
If you two turn in repentance to Allah, (it shall be good for you) since your hearts had deviated. But if you back up each other against him (in divulging family matters), then, behold, Allah is with him, and so is Gabriel (who brings the Revelation), and the righteous believers. Also angels are his helpers. ('Angels' here denotes perseverance, restraint, courage, resolve, contentment (3;126), (8:9), (9:26), (33:56)). (Here is the absolute refutation of the Hadith collectors who obnoxiously peep into fabricated accounts of the Prophet's private life).
Here the word mawlahu has been used more in terms of "helper/supporter".
So if someone argues that by Maulana means "helper or supporter" then they may have a valid point. Using the title as "Master/Protector/Lord" for a human being is an issue.
