As a religious leader in Israel’s Druze community, Sheikh Abu Rukun describes L. Ron Hubbard as “a world giant of spirituality, of philosophy.” Detailing Mr. Hubbard’s lifetime of accomplishments, Sheikh Abu Rukun says, “When I heard of the books that he authored, over 1400 writings, and the lectures he gave—over 3,300 lectures in his lifetime; and all the articles he wrote—of which there are also hundreds of thousands—this is what I think he bestowed upon the world. There is nothing he did not touch upon and everything he touched upon he did so with distinction.”

He noted that Mr. Hubbard introduced people in countries throughout the world “to Dianetics and the way of the mind and of spirituality. And these were places no one has touched as deeply or specifically as Mr. Hubbard.”

In truth, I think it is impossible to describe Hubbard in just a few words. But—we will try in our own way, to say what we think. I think that he was a saint of the first order. He was a philosopher, he was a biologist, he was a public figure of the first order. He was a modest man. He was a man who worked day and night without tiring. And he was a man who can be viewed as a symbol—as someone to emulate—by anyone who strives to succeed in life. As all the failures people have had, if they take the route of reason, or the route of Hubbard’s teachings, or by emulating what he did in his life they will once again stand upright and succeed.

The moment I first read about Hubbard I became very enamored with him. And I received many gifts from the Scientology Center about Hubbard’s life and I began to read: from when he was a mariner to when he became a world giant of spirituality, of philosophy, of chemistry and of biology.

Anything is possible, so long as one has a strong determination and good intentions. And Mr. Hubbard lived so many different incarnations and so many different roles and excelled in them all. And when I heard of the books that he authored, over 1,400 writings and the lectures he gave—over 3,300 lectures in his lifetime; and all the articles he wrote—of which there are also hundreds of thousands—so this is what I think he bestowed upon the world. There is nothing he did not touch upon and everything he touched upon he did so with distinction.

I think that any aspect one can think of about Mr. Hubbard would immortalize him forever. But I think the biggest thing that represents his life is his overwhelming will. Time was subservient to his circumstances. What I mean is he worked day and night and travelled day and night to countries which had not discovered—as in, he introduced them, these countries, to Dianetics and the way of the mind and of spirituality. And these were places no one has touched as deeply or specifically as Mr. Hubbard.
