As viewed by the most contemporary world scholars, true faith, being based on the human heart's relationship to the Supreme God, is a safe source for man to become free from some ominous - though not intrinsic - incremental advances of empirical science and prefers man and society`s harmony for attaining inner peace. Their institution prefers this basic need. Faith with such qualities as confidence-building, peace-causing, self-reliance, and conformity with one's inner conscience - in the path of a servant's inner relationship to God, has come to be regarded as an important element of the Qur'anic teachings. Human faith emanating from the human heart's relationship with the Supreme God, through the passage of moral virtues and doing good deeds, guides man to the divine destination and the presence of Divinity, which is the purpose of human creation, so the present article analyzes the role of "faith" from the Qur'an's point of view and deals with the human heart's relationship with the Supreme God and examines instances of faith arising from the heart's relationship.
Keywords: Exemplars of Faith, Heart Relations, Moral Virtues
