You must've found this but anyway...http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maulana
Jai, Maulvi is spelt in many different ways in different countries. In Iran the transliteration is often Molavi (it's pronounced differently as well). Other variations include Maulwi, Mawlvi, Maulawi, etc. Apparently it means "our guide, or master, or lord" in Arabic and Persian. Maulana and Maulvi are two different forms of the same word.
you ridicule islam. prepare to die.
damn! Anoymous beat me to that...
lookie at answers.com instead http://www.answers.com/main/ntquery?s=found%20for%20%E2%80%9Cmaulvi%E2%80%9D&fw=2&fc=23&gwp=16
Prepare to die anyway - it's likely to happen sometime even if you don't ridicule Islam. BTW "Rashid" is the Arab for guide. "Maulavi" means something close to teacher I think. ("Maulava" is the Russian for a horny woman.)DD
Why would the Russians need a word for that?
Ha! jabberwocky how dare you insinuate Islam and allow maulvi to be equated with Russian horny women.I demand you remove this post at once, or I'll land up in Delhi and we'll see who's the boss around town <:X
Why would the Russians need a word for that?now you offend women too! :(
