The word Lord

Q: In Dutch language the title prenoun for a man is: ''meneer'' which is derrived from ''mijnheer''. The english word for this is: mister, sir, literally ''mijn heer'' means ''my lord''. Is using such words shirk?


A: No. The word lord is used for several meanings, sometimes for people and sometimes for Allah Ta`ala.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
