Disrespect of the word Fatwa (فتویٰ)

I have seen on this and other forums that the authors use the words 'fatwa', 'mufti', and other words from the same Arabic origin. Political and ideological differences aside, we should be very cautions about the usage of these words in degrading sense. The reason is that the words 'yufti' is used in the Noble Quran, and most of the times Allah, the Most High has used it for Himself. Here are the results of a search for this word:

وَيَسْتَفْتُونَكَ فِي النِّسَاءِ قُلِ اللَّـهُ يُفْتِيكُمْ فِيهِنَّ وَمَا يُتْلَىٰ عَلَيْكُمْ فِي الْكِتَابِ فِي يَتَامَى النِّسَاءِ اللَّاتِي لَا تُؤْتُونَهُنَّ مَا كُتِبَ لَهُنَّ وَتَرْغَبُونَ أَن تَنكِحُوهُنَّ وَالْمُسْتَضْعَفِينَ مِنَ الْوِلْدَانِ وَأَن تَقُومُوا لِلْيَتَامَىٰ بِالْقِسْطِ وَمَا تَفْعَلُوا مِنْ خَيْرٍ فَإِنَّ اللَّـهَ كَانَ بِهِ عَلِيمًا ﴿النساء:١٢٧

يَسْتَفْتُونَكَ قُلِ اللَّـهُ يُفْتِيكُمْ فِي الْكَلَالَةِ إِنِ امْرُؤٌ هَلَكَ لَيْسَ لَهُ وَلَدٌ وَلَهُ أُخْتٌ فَلَهَا نِصْفُ مَا تَرَكَ وَهُوَ يَرِثُهَا إِن لَّمْ يَكُن لَّهَا وَلَدٌ فَإِن كَانَتَا اثْنَتَيْنِ فَلَهُمَا الثُّلُثَانِ مِمَّا تَرَكَ وَإِن كَانُوا إِخْوَةً رِّجَالًا وَنِسَاءً فَلِلذَّكَرِ مِثْلُ حَظِّ الْأُنثَيَيْنِ يُبَيِّنُ اللَّـهُ لَكُمْ أَن تَضِلُّوا وَاللَّـهُ بِكُلِّ شَيْءٍ عَلِيمٌ ﴿النساء: ١٧٦



Therefore, I humbly request all the Muslim forum members (myself included) to be cautious about using these words. Thanks.

Allah also used name of Abu Lahab should we respect it ? Fatwa is scholarly opinion of any aalim. Might be right wrong, witty, stupid, good , brilliant or anything

فتویٰ ہر مسلمان نہیں دے سکتا
اس کے لیے ایک مخصوص قابلیت ہونا ضروری ہے
پھر اس فتوے میں وہ تمام باتیں نہیں ہوتیں جو آپ نے اوپر بیان کی ہیں
فتویٰ دینے والا شخص قابل احترام ہوتا ہے

Fatwa dainay wala agar muqurar kar da qabliat par poora utarta hay aur apnay Allah (SWT) ko hazir naazir jaan kar poori diyanat daari say fatwa daita hay to agar Fatwa drust hay to dohraa ajar paata hay.....agar bashri kamzoori ki wajah say ghalat fatwa jaari ho jaata hay to phir bhi single ajar pata hay.
 
So mufti become God that he cannot be wrong or stupid.

Dear bro, the purpose of this thread was not to lift somebody above the human status. Instead, the discussion I have started was to respect a word that Allah the Most High has used for Himself.
 
And my point is this care should be observed by people who give fatwa. No one should expect us to praise anyone of low level stuff
