This work shows the traditional method of spiritual chivalry of assuming the positive traits or virtues of God's Most Beautiful Names. Known as moral self-healing (attaining muruwwah), it occurs psychologically through three stages referred to in this work as three parts. Part I, a translation of al-Ghazzali's work on the Ninety-Nine Names, shows Theoethicsthe Most Beautiful Names as only God can manifest them. This serves as the knowledge base. Part II, psychoethics shows the traditional method of processing that knowledge. Part IIISocioethicsshows the way to test the extent of having healed morallythrough our actions and improving our relations with others. Healing is effected through assuming God's Most Beautiful Names to the extent God's Grace and our own endeavor allow.
