I went to Ayubi's in Glen Burnie tonight and got the bad news that they have been sold, and will change over in two weeks to Hip Hop Chicken and Fish - apparently a local Baltimore chain. They are currently selling off the remaining Afghan food so if you want one last taste of the Afghan part of the menu, go soon.
The fellow I spoke to (one of the long-time Ayubi's staff) says that the Ayubi's owners will not be trying another location. He said (I cannot confirm any of this independently) that the owner also has other businesses, including the New York Fried Chicken shops, and he's going to focus on those businesses rather than trying again with Afghani cuisine elsewhere.
The one potential bright spot is that I was told that the new owner is going to at least keep the kabobs on the menu, though he is not going to keep any of the non-kabob Afghan items. Maybe he figures that if the equipment is already there, it's worth using it for a while and seeing if it pays off, rather than incurring the cost of pulling it all out.
Again, just passing on what I was told, so if things play out differently, please don't shoot the messenger!
