IV. AHLUL‐BAIT—EXPLORING THE RELATION BETWEEN ISLAM AND SCIENTOLOGY

To understand that Islam and Scientology are compatible and in agreement, it helps to know Ahlul-Bait. For the reason of pronunciation, the term is spelled Ahlul-Bait, but it is actually Ahl al-Bait. Ahl means family and al-Bait means house of God. Thus, Ahlul-Bait means family of the house of God, although it is generally considered to mean, “The family of the Household of the Prophet.”

While the Quran encourages Muslims to accept that earlier prophecies and knowledges are actually a part of Islamic thought and a place for Islamic study, so does Scientology to a degree. Similarly L. Ron Hubbard writes, “The phenomena of Scientology are discovered and are held in common by all men and all life forms.” He also stated when describing the aims of Scientology, “The combined truths of fifty thousand years of thinking men, distilled and amplified by new discoveries about man, have made for this success.” It is apparent that both the Scientology and Islam teachings have the understanding that their philosophies and sciences (both these religions do profess to have both philosophies and sciences as they are religions in the very widest and fullest sense of the term and both their philosophies and sciences are demonstrable) encompass not only their own adherents but apply to all manner of life and its interaction within the universe and beyond. From this point of view, both religions would consider themselves to have the understanding that they are part of the family of mankind and that mankind is something to be helped through their respective knowledges of life and the universe.

and the universe.

One fundamental and very basic aspect of both the Scientology and the Islamic religions is that they both believe that man is basically good. This is very distinct from Christianity, which supposes that man is composed of original sin. With such a basic common understanding this writer would be surprised if members of the Scientology and Islam religions could not gain an understanding of each other.
