Who is MAULANA ?

(Date written : 13 June 2015)

1) There are many so-called Scholars, out of respect, some people called them Maulana.


2) What is the meaning of MAULANA ?


The root letters are WA LAM YA.

This root word appears 232 times in the Quran.


MAULAKUM means Your Protector.

AULIYA`AKUM means Your Protector.


3) Now let us look at some of the verses of Allah that relates to this root word :

a) There is no WALIY or Protector except Allah.

Al-Baqara : 107

أَلَمْ تَعْلَمْ أَنَّ اللَّهَ لَهُۥ مُلْكُ السَّمٰوٰتِ وَالْأَرْضِ ۗ وَمَا لَكُم مِّن دُونِ اللَّهِ مِن وَلِىٍّ وَلَا نَصِيرٍ

● Do you not know that to Allah belongs the dominion of the heavens and the earth and [that] not for you BESIDES Allah ANY PROTECTOR (WALIYYIN) or any helper? ●

The above verse CELARLY tells us that THERE is NO ONE else, OTHER than ALLAH that we can call The PROTECTOR except Allah.

b) We are taught by this verse to call ALLAH as OUR PROTECTOR - ANTA MAULANA :

Al-Baqara : 286

لَا يُكَلِّفُ اللَّهُ نَفْسًا إِلَّا وُسْعَهَا ۚ لَهَا مَا كَسَبَتْ وَعَلَيْهَا مَا اكْتَسَبَتْ ۗ رَبَّنَا لَا تُؤَاخِذْنَآ إِن نَّسِينَآ أَوْ أَخْطَأْنَا ۚ رَبَّنَا وَلَا تَحْمِلْ عَلَيْنَآ إِصْرًا كَمَا حَمَلْتَهُۥ عَلَى الَّذِينَ مِن قَبْلِنَا ۚ رَبَّنَا وَلَا تُحَمِّلْنَا مَا لَا طَاقَةَ لَنَا بِهِۦ ۖ وَاعْفُ عَنَّا وَاغْفِرْ لَنَا وَارْحَمْنَآ ۚ أَنتَ مَوْلٰىنَا فَانصُرْنَا عَلَى الْقَوْمِ الْكٰفِرِينَ

● Allah does not charge a soul except [with that within] its capacity. It will have [the consequence of] what [good] it has gained, and it will bear [the consequence of] what [evil] it has earned. "Our Lord, do not impose blame upon us if we have forgotten or erred. Our Lord, and lay not upon us a burden like that which You laid upon those before us. Our Lord, and burden us not with that which we have no ability to bear. And pardon us; and forgive us; and have mercy upon us. YOU ARE OUR PROTECTOR (ANTA MAULANA), so help us against the disbelieving people." ●

c) Allah warns us not to take PROTECTORS or AULIYA`, other than HIM :

Ash-Shura : 9

أَمِ اتَّخَذُوا مِن دُونِهِۦٓ أَوْلِيَآءَ ۖ فَاللَّهُ هُوَ الْوَلِىُّ وَهُوَ يُحْىِ الْمَوْتٰى وَهُوَ عَلٰى كُلِّ شَىْءٍ قَدِيرٌ

● Or have they taken PROTECTORS (AULIYA`) BESIDES HIM? But Allah - He is the Protector, and He gives life to the dead, and He is over all things competent. ●

d) ALLAH uses the Word BAL, meaning ABSOLUTE NEGATIVE CONFIRMATION that only HIM is the PROTECTOR :

Aal-i-Imraan : 150

بَلِ اللَّهُ مَوْلٰىكُمْ ۖ وَهُوَ خَيْرُ النّٰصِرِينَ

● BUT (BAL) Allah is YOUR PROTECTOR (MAULAKUM), and He is the best of helpers. ●


Al-An'aam : 61

وَهُوَ الْقَاهِرُ فَوْقَ عِبَادِهِۦ ۖ وَيُرْسِلُ عَلَيْكُمْ حَفَظَةً حَتّٰىٓ إِذَا جَآءَ أَحَدَكُمُ الْمَوْتُ تَوَفَّتْهُ رُسُلُنَا وَهُمْ لَا يُفَرِّطُونَ

● And He is the subjugator over His servants, and He sends over you guardian-angels until, when death comes to one of you, Our messengers take him, and they do not fail [in their duties]. ●

Al-An'aam : 62

ثُمَّ رُدُّوٓا إِلَى اللَّهِ مَوْلٰىهُمُ الْحَقِّ ۚ أَلَا لَهُ الْحُكْمُ وَهُوَ أَسْرَعُ الْحٰسِبِينَ

● Then they His servants are returned to Allah, their TRUE PROTECTOR (MAULA HUMUL HAQ). Unquestionably, His is the judgement, and He is the swiftest of accountants. ●

Yunus : 30

هُنَالِكَ تَبْلُوا كُلُّ نَفْسٍ مَّآ أَسْلَفَتْ ۚ وَرُدُّوٓا إِلَى اللَّهِ مَوْلٰىهُمُ الْحَقِّ ۖ وَضَلَّ عَنْهُم مَّا كَانُوا يَفْتَرُونَ

● There, [on that Day], every soul will be put to trial for what it did previously, and they will be returned to Allah, their TRUE PROTECTOR (MAULA HUMUL HAQ), the Truth, and lost from them is whatever they used to invent. ●

These verses CLEARLY explain that our TRUE MAULA is only Allah.

f) ALLAH is the Protector (WALIY) for the Believer while THAGUT is the Protector of the KUFR or Disbeliever :

Al-Baqara : 257

اللَّهُ وَلِىُّ الَّذِينَ ءَامَنُوا يُخْرِجُهُم مِّنَ الظُّلُمٰتِ إِلَى النُّورِ ۖ وَالَّذِينَ كَفَرُوٓا أَوْلِيَآؤُهُمُ الطّٰغُوتُ يُخْرِجُونَهُم مِّنَ النُّورِ إِلَى الظُّلُمٰتِ ۗ أُولٰٓئِكَ أَصْحٰبُ النَّارِ ۖ هُمْ فِيهَا خٰلِدُونَ

● Allah is the PROTECTOR (WALIYYUN) of those who believe. He brings them out from darknesses into the light. And those who disbelieve - their PROTECTORS (AULIYA`UHUN) are TAGHUT. They take them out of the light into darknesses. Those are the companions of the Fire; they will abide eternally therein. ●

AND THAGUT, they dont Protect anything or anybody at all :

Muhammad : 11

ذٰلِكَ بِأَنَّ اللَّهَ مَوْلَى الَّذِينَ ءَامَنُوا وَأَنَّ الْكٰفِرِينَ لَا مَوْلٰى لَهُمْ

● That is because Allah is the PROTECTOR (MAULA) of those who have believed and because the disbelievers have NO PROTECTOR (LA MAULA). ●

g) Allah is Our MAULA :

Al-Anfaal : 40

وَإِن تَوَلَّوْا فَاعْلَمُوٓا أَنَّ اللَّهَ مَوْلٰىكُمْ ۚ نِعْمَ الْمَوْلٰى وَنِعْمَ النَّصِيرُ

● But if they turn away - then know that Allah is YOUR PROTECTOR (MAULAKUM). Excellent is the protector, and Excellent is the helper. ●

At-Tawba : 51

قُل لَّن يُصِيبَنَآ إِلَّا مَا كَتَبَ اللَّهُ لَنَا هُوَ مَوْلٰىنَا ۚ وَعَلَى اللَّهِ فَلْيَتَوَكَّلِ الْمُؤْمِنُونَ

● Say, "Never will we be struck except by what Allah has decreed for us; He is OUR PROTECTOR (MAULANA)." And upon Allah let the believers rely. ●

Al-Hajj : 78

وَجٰهِدُوا فِى اللَّهِ حَقَّ جِهَادِهِۦ ۚ هُوَ اجْتَبٰىكُمْ وَمَا جَعَلَ عَلَيْكُمْ فِى الدِّينِ مِنْ حَرَجٍ ۚ مِّلَّةَ أَبِيكُمْ إِبْرٰهِيمَ ۚ هُوَ سَمّٰىكُمُ الْمُسْلِمِينَ مِن قَبْلُ وَفِى هٰذَا لِيَكُونَ الرَّسُولُ شَهِيدًا عَلَيْكُمْ وَتَكُونُوا شُهَدَآءَ عَلَى النَّاسِ ۚ فَأَقِيمُوا الصَّلٰوةَ وَءَاتُوا الزَّكٰوةَ وَاعْتَصِمُوا بِاللَّهِ هُوَ مَوْلٰىكُمْ ۖ فَنِعْمَ الْمَوْلٰى وَنِعْمَ النَّصِيرُ

● ... So establish prayer and give zakah and hold fast to Allah. He is YOUR PROTECTOR (MAULAKUM); and excellent is the PROTECTOR (MAULA), and excellent is the helper. ●

h) ALLAH warns not to invoke other MAULA than HIM :

Al-Hajj : 12

يَدْعُوا مِن دُونِ اللَّهِ مَا لَا يَضُرُّهُۥ وَمَا لَا يَنفَعُهُۥ ۚ ذٰلِكَ هُوَ الضَّلٰلُ الْبَعِيدُ

● He invokes instead of Allah that which neither harms him nor benefits him. That is what is the extreme error. ●

Al-Hajj : 13

يَدْعُوا لَمَن ضَرُّهُۥٓ أَقْرَبُ مِن نَّفْعِهِۦ ۚ لَبِئْسَ الْمَوْلٰى وَلَبِئْسَ الْعَشِيرُ

● He invokes one whose harm is closer than his benefit - how wretched the PROTECTOR (MAULA) and how wretched the associate. ●

i) Allah mentions that the MAULA of Hyprocrites (MUNAFIQIN) is HELL FIRE :

Al-Hadid : 14

يُنَادُونَهُمْ أَلَمْ نَكُن مَّعَكُمْ ۖ قَالُوا بَلٰى وَلٰكِنَّكُمْ فَتَنتُمْ أَنفُسَكُمْ وَتَرَبَّصْتُمْ وَارْتَبْتُمْ وَغَرَّتْكُمُ الْأَمَانِىُّ حَتّٰى جَآءَ أَمْرُ اللَّهِ وَغَرَّكُم بِاللَّهِ الْغَرُورُ

● They [HYPOCRITES-MUNAFIQIN] will call them [the BELIEVERS], "Were we not with you?" They will say, "Yes, but you afflicted yourselves and awaited [misfortune for us] and doubted, and WISHFUL THINKING DELUDED you until there came the command of Allah. And the DECEIVER DECEIVED you concerning Allah. ●

Al-Hadid : 15

فَالْيَوْمَ لَا يُؤْخَذُ مِنكُمْ فِدْيَةٌ وَلَا مِنَ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا ۚ مَأْوٰىكُمُ النَّارُ ۖ هِىَ مَوْلٰىكُمْ ۖ وَبِئْسَ الْمَصِيرُ

● So today no ransom will be taken from you or from those who disbelieved. Your PROTECTOR (MAULAKUM) is the Fire. It is most worthy of you, and wretched is the destination. ●

The above verse, MAULA here is a METAPHOR - it is A MITHAL - an analogy of saying that The MUNAFIQIN who is already a KAFIR, who DENY the verses of ALLAH - they will be 'PROTECTED' by the FIRE of HELL.

4) However there are verses of Allah that use the word MAULA or Protector, that "PERCEIVED" by the so-called Scholars as LEGITIMATE to use MAULANA to other than Allah :

An-Nahl : 76

وَضَرَبَ اللَّهُ مَثَلًا رَّجُلَيْنِ أَحَدُهُمَآ أَبْكَمُ لَا يَقْدِرُ عَلٰى شَىْءٍ وَهُوَ كَلٌّ عَلٰى مَوْلٰىهُ أَيْنَمَا يُوَجِّههُّ لَا يَأْتِ بِخَيْرٍ ۖ هَلْ يَسْتَوِى هُوَ وَمَن يَأْمُرُ بِالْعَدْلِ ۙ وَهُوَ عَلٰى صِرٰطٍ مُّسْتَقِيمٍ

● And Allah presents an EXAMPLE (MATHALA) of two men, one of them dumb and unable to do a thing, while he is a burden to HIS PROTECTOR (MAULAHU). Wherever he directs him, he brings no good. Is he equal to one who commands justice, while he is on a straight path? ●

At-Tahrim : 4

إِن تَتُوبَآ إِلَى اللَّهِ فَقَدْ صَغَتْ قُلُوبُكُمَا ۖ وَإِن تَظٰهَرَا عَلَيْهِ فَإِنَّ اللَّهَ هُوَ مَوْلٰىهُ وَجِبْرِيلُ وَصٰلِحُ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ ۖ وَالْمَلٰٓئِكَةُ بَعْدَ ذٰلِكَ ظَهِيرٌ

● If you two [wives] repent to Allah, [it is best], for your hearts have deviated. But if you cooperate against him - then indeed Allah is HIS PROTECTOR (MAULAHU), and Gabriel and the righteous of the believers and moreover, the angels, are [his] assistants. ●

Those 2 verses above, somewhat PERCEIVED by the People who ALWAYS put their opinion above the other verses of Allah that CLEARLY contradict with their DELUDED ASSUMPTION - that we can call other than Allah as MAULANA or Our Protector.

Let us analyze the verse of An-Nahl:76 :

It is SIMPLE to understand if we have the right mind that would like to UNDERSTAND the CLEAR verse of ALLAH without INDUCED OPINION or TAKWIL. That verse shows that it is a MITHAL - an example with the MEANING BEHIND that -  a person who is DUMB and cannot do anything is USELESS to his MAULA (PROTECTOR) - this example actually apply to DISBELIEVERS that this type of people are USELESS to Allah.

Let us analyze the verse of At-Tahrim:4 :

This verse explains about our Prophet and Messenger Muhammad PBUH; the one who is GUIDED by Allah - where ALLAH is his PROTECTOR (MAULAHU), also GABRIEL is his PROTECTOR, also SOLIHUL MUKMINUN is his PROTECTOR. It basically means if ALLAH is The Protector to Prophet Muhammad PBUH, all other beings that is CLOSED to Allah also PROTECT our prophet, the Guided one by Allah. But, TRUE PROTECTOR is only Allah - there is no doubt about it, if Allah does not protect -  for example the Disbeliever, no one besides HIM can protect the Disbeliever from the Punishment from Allah.

5) Last, the DISSOLUTION of Our OATH is :

At-Tahrim : 2

قَدْ فَرَضَ اللَّهُ لَكُمْ تَحِلَّةَ أَيْمٰنِكُمْ ۚ وَاللَّهُ مَوْلٰىكُمْ ۖ وَهُوَ الْعَلِيمُ الْحَكِيمُ

● Indeed, Allah has ordained for you [Muslims] the dissolution of your oaths. And [/THAT] Allah is YOUR PROTECTOR (WALLAHU MAULAKUM), and He is the Knowing, the Wise. ●

And please READ CAREFULLY and UNDERSTAND this verse - may Allah GUIDE us :

Az-Zumar : 3

أَلَا لِلَّهِ الدِّينُ الْخَالِصُ ۚ وَالَّذِينَ اتَّخَذُوا مِن دُونِهِۦٓ أَوْلِيَآءَ مَا نَعْبُدُهُمْ إِلَّا لِيُقَرِّبُونَآ إِلَى اللَّهِ زُلْفٰىٓ إِنَّ اللَّهَ يَحْكُمُ بَيْنَهُمْ فِى مَا هُمْ فِيهِ يَخْتَلِفُونَ ۗ إِنَّ اللَّهَ لَا يَهْدِى مَنْ هُوَ كٰذِبٌ كَفَّارٌ

● Unquestionably, for Allah is the PURE (KHALIS) religion. And those who take PROTECTORS (AULIYA`) besides Him [say], "We only worship them that they may bring us nearer to Allah in position." Indeed, Allah will judge between them concerning that over which they differ. Indeed, Allah does not guide he who is a liar and disbeliever. ●

The above verse has PROFOUND meaning - of how KHALIS or PURE is related to the MAULA or PROTECTOR. It means people who believe in Allah, PURELY, take only ALLAH as OUR PROTECTOR and no other besides HIM.

6) Hence, calling a person as MAULANA is SHIRK or Associating Partner with Allah. Simply because Allah is OUR ONLY PROTECTOR our MAULANA.



Ash-Shura : 10

وَمَا اخْتَلَفْتُمْ فِيهِ مِن شَىْءٍ فَحُكْمُهُۥٓ إِلَى اللَّهِ ۚ ذٰلِكُمُ اللَّهُ رَبِّى عَلَيْهِ تَوَكَّلْتُ وَإِلَيْهِ أُنِيبُ

● And in anything over which you DISAGREE - its ruling is [to be referred] to Allah. [Say], "That is Allah, my Lord; upon Him I have relied, and to Him I turn back." ●
