```The true meaning of MAULANA:

No country uses “Maulana” title: The Mullahs have adopted for themselves the honorific title of “Maulana” (which means, OUR protector, OUR Lord, OUR Master) which has the most serious un-Islamic connotation of placing another WITH the Almighty -SHIRK.

The word “Maulana” is a compound word – MAULA & NA (our) which, under strict Islamic philosophy is applicable to God ALONE!

The word is used only twice in the Holy Quran & refers to Allah Subhaanahoo Wa Ta’ala, indicating that it can be referred ONLY to HIM & NO ONE ELSE

Rabana…anta MAULANA fansoorna alal qaoumil Kaafireen – Our Lord…You are our Protector/ Lord/ Master, so grant us victory over the unbelievers.” Qur'an (2:286)

"Huwa MAULANA; wa alal Laahi fal yatawakkalil Mu’minoon – HE (Allah) is our Protector/ Lord/ Master, And on Allah let the Believers rely.”
Qur'an (9:51).

The argument is supported by the facts that: in no other country in the world this honorific title is used;

* In whole Arabia the title used is SHAIKH (head) & USTAAD (teacher);

* In Iran the word used is IMAM (Leader), or MULLAH

*The Bohra Muslim sect head is called SAYYADINA

In Central Asia countries the word used is MULLAH

The word “Maulana” is in usage only among the Urdu-speaking Muslims of the sub-continent. Until the birth of Maulanaism, the words used among the Urdu-speakers also were MULLAH (fully equipped) or MAULAWI (belonging to God)

The dictionaries of the 19th century do not have this word “Maulana” its found only in modern dictionaries indicating that it is of recent origin; noted religious authorities of the past also carry the word MULLAH, MAULAWI, SHAIKH. Maulana” is not seen except in the case of Rumi.

Rumi is called “Maulana-e-Rome” But he is a SUFI & SUFISM is rejected by the “Maulanas” & Sufis have their own peculiar hierarchy & standard of honorifics (e.g. QUTUB, ABDAAL, etc.) which are not only NOT recognised by the “maulanas”, but their beliefs and practices are condemned.
Therefore Rumi’s honorific cannot come to their defence.

Mischief of the Hindu Press: Noted scholars even of the recent past like, Abul Kalaam Azaad, Shibli Nu’maani, Ashraf Ali Thanwi, Abdul Haqq, have not been referred to as “Maulanas”,

But as Maulawis by Allamah Abdullah Yusuf Ali, translator/ commentator of the Holy Quran as late as in 1934. But the same Maulawis are recently redesignated by the present-day “Maulanas.” This is un-Islamic term & appears to have been popularised by the Hindu press in India.

The Hindu press projected Maulawi Abul Kalaam Azaad as “Maulana” Azaad, with the dual purpose of making him a leader of Muslims and also to sell the word “Maulana” among the masses! The Indian Muslim priests gets hugely pleased on being called a “Maulana”. This is Shirk.

Allah knew these intellectual pygmies will try & arrogate to themselves His designation of “Maulana” thus HE made it clear: “WA’TISIMOO BILLHI HUWA MAULAAKUM FANI’MALMAULAWANI’MAN NASEER: "Hold on to Allah, He is ur Protector, excellent the Protector & excellent the Helper” 22:78

PLEASE read this and convey the message across that these Fitna mongers are there to spread hatred, sectarianism & keep the massess ignorant and won't let them gain the true knowledge of Quran & Al-Hadith & have total control on religion to maintain their importance.```
