Dear Ali Noor,

Salamun Alaikum.

There is an underlying assumption in your post that we need to know the 'descriptions' of these names for religious guidance, other than the wisdom that is readily imparted from the Quran and the narratives in which these names are found.

If we take the Quran's own testimony that claims to be a complete guide (huda 2:2), explained in detail (41:3; 11:1, 12:111 - tafsila), an explanation of all things necessary for religion (tibiana lekulli shayin 16:89), a criterion to judge between right and wrong (furqan 25:1) and the only source for religious guidance (6:114); then why do we have to fill in gaps which we ourselves perceive, such as 'descriptions' not expounded by the Quran?

I would like to share an article which is my humble perspective which I feel is relevant to your good post.

UNKNOWN TOWNS AND NAMES - WHY FILL IN THE GAPS?

I hope this helps, God willing,
Joseph.
