The present article is intended to explain the reciprocal relation between faith and moral excellences. The writer has tried to answer three questions in this regard: Do moral virtues have a role in creating belief in God? Does faith have a role in the appearance and creation of moral excellences? Does faith have a role in creating goodness and value in moral act? The writer has addressed the viewpoints and arguments of each of the three fields and ultimately concluded that in the first question, the moral excellences theoretically have a role in the creation of faith, but in practice and external objectivity they have no role in it, unless on the absolute basis of Divine assistance. In reply to the second question, faith has definitely a role in creation of moral excellences, albeit by specific mechanism that is explained in the present article. As for the third question, the writer believes that faith does not have a role in creating the attribute of goodness and value of action.
