RE: THE MEANING OF USTAD... Dan Darling has some interesting anecdotes on the terrorist group Abu Sayyaf, which is a reply to an e-mail I sent him. Anyhow, as I noted in that e-mail, Wahabi warlord Abdurrab Rasul Sayyaf has changed his name to Ustad Abdul Rasul Sayyaf. (His real name is simply Abdul Rasur Sayyaf.) The meaning of the word Ustad is not a title denoting a Muslim teacher, but it indicates that the person is a professor. From what is I have heard, he did teach for a very short time at a small Islamic university called the Shariat in Kabul. It ended when he, together with Burhanuddin Rabbani, Ahmed Shah Massoud and Gulbuddin Hekmatyar, tried to overthrow President Daoud Khan from the Panjshir Valley in 1973 (if I remember correctly); the coup failed miserably and the future-mujahedin leaders fled to Pakistan.
