For me, making a phone call to someone I don’t know, is terrifying. I can’t hear most tone of voice, so anything beyond the most basic emotion, tone of voice is lost on me. Like, you’re laughing? Crying? Screaming at me? Gotcha. Happy/sad/angry respectively. Beyond that? My brain doesn’t really register it at all. Not in real time. Not effectively enough for conversation or to pick up on anything remotely subtle.

Add in that I can’t see their face/body language to get even a feeble read on that, plus the inability to make predictions about the direction of the conversation due to the lack of this information..

Its like being lost in a foreign city in the middle of the night. And when you ask for help, everyone just says, “You have the address, you’ll be fine. There’s nothing to be afraid of.


Al-Asma-ul-Husna ( اَلاسْمَاءُ الْحُسناى ) The 99 Most Beautiful Names and Attributes of Allah(سبحانه و تعالى) the Almighty

He is Allah, the Creator, the Inventor, the Fashioner; to Him belong the best names. Whatever is in the heavens and earth is exalting Him. And He is the Exalted in Might, the Wise. Surat Al-Hashr 59:24

And to Allah belong the best names, so invoke Him by them. Surat Al-A’raf 7:180

Allah – there is no deity except Him. To Him belong the best names. Surat Taha 20:8

Narrated Abu Huraira: Prophet Muhammad (صلى الله عليه و سلم) said, “Allah(سبحانه و تعالى) has ninety-nine names, i.e. one-hundred minus one, and whoever knows them will go to Paradise.” - Sahih Al-Bukhari – Book 50 Hadith 894

Abu Huraira reported Prophet Muhammad (صلى الله عليه و سلم) as saying: Verily, there are ninety-nine names for Allah(سبحانه و تعالى), i.e. hundred excepting one. He who enumerates them would get into Paradise. And on the authority of Abu Huraira who reported it from Prophet Muhammad (صلى الله عليه و سلم) that he said: “He is Odd (one) and loves odd number.” - Sahih Muslim – Book 35 Hadith 6476

It is not possible to perfectly translate the names and attributes of Allah(سبحانه و تعالى) from their original Arabic into English. However, here are some fairly close definitions.
