In the Qur’an, does Allah, the Lord of the Worlds, call those of us (paid mullahs) ulama ٱلْعُلَمَٰٓؤُۗ ٱلْعُلَمَٰٓؤُۗ? In verse 26 below, the definition of ulama is given.

Sura Fatir 35: Ayat 27-30

(27) Do you not see that Allah sends down rain from the sky, and We produce thereby fruits of varying colors? And in the mountains are tracts, white and red of varying shades and [some] extremely black.
(28) And among people and moving creatures and grazing livestock are various colors similarly. Only those fear Allah, from among His servants, who have knowledge (ٱلْعُلَمَٰٓؤُۗ) Indeed, Allah is Exalted in Might and Forgiving.
(29) Indeed, those who Study the Book of Allah and establish the Commandments of ALLAH and spend [in HIS cause] out of what WE have provided them, secretly and publicly, hope for a Commerce that will never perish –
(30) That He may give them in full their rewards and increase for them of His bounty. Indeed, He is Forgiving and Appreciative.

(27) Have you not seen that Allah sends down water from the cloud, then We bring forth with it fruits of various colors, and in the mountains are white and red paths of various colors and (some) mixed.
(28) And thus are the colors of man, and of the cattle, and of the beasts of the field. Only the learned among the servants (ٱلْعُلَمَٰٓؤُۗ) fear Allah. GOD is Almighty, Most Forgiving.
(29) Surely those who study the Book of Allah, establish the prayer / follow the guidance of Allah, and spend out of what Allah has provided for them secretly and openly, they may hope for a business which will never perish.
(30) That He may repay them in full, and increase them in His bounty. Surely He is Forgiving, Merciful.
