Genuine knowledge of God is one of the most basic goal of the human creation, which can be obtained through monotheistic signs, but it cannot be obtained by everyone. This research aims to consider the role of morality in understanding monotheistic signs in accordance with Quranic verses and construct a conceptual model for this. The research is of a library kind and its method is descriptive-analytic as per the classical method in religious studies. The research shows that the attributes of piety, thankfulness, and patience help one understand divine signs. In the first instance, these attributes prepare the ground for reflection and thoughts, and in the second, they prepare the acceptance of the implications of monotheistic knowledge. Thus, when confronted with monotheistic signs, epistemic and practical preparations are evaluated, and if such evaluation yields an affirmative result, the process of understanding and accepting monotheism will begin. This paper concludes that the attributes of piety, thankfulness, and patience should be developed in order to expand one’s understanding of monotheistic signs.
