Prophet Muhammad (saw) said "Allah has 99 Names, one hundred minus 1, so invoke Him by these Names."
So He is Al Karim (Most Generous), He is Al Wadood (Most Loving), He is Al Raoof (Most Kind), Al Wakeel (Disposer of affairs)
He is Al Karim (Most Generous) to the one who begs Him and He bestows, He is Al Raoof (Most Kind) and bestows upon whomsoever He Wills from among his creation, even though the slave didn't request, out of His Generosity. He is Al Wadood (Most Loving) to the slave by not giving him/her something he/she begs as it might not be the right time or it might not be good for them, and if they remain patient at His decision they come closer to Him. He is Al Wakeel (Disposer of Affairs), He becomes your Al Wakeel when you have no one to assist you in a crucial matter and you invoke Him through this attribute of His.
Another very important purpose of Allah (swt) sharing His Most Beautiful Names, not only for us to invoke Him through them, but also we are to imitate them. As Allah (swt) is Kind, we should be Kind to the creation, if He is Al Hakam (The Judge), then we should judge in all matters with complete justice, if He is As Salaam (Giver of Peace) so we should spread Peace among His creation and that is why our greetings is 'Asalaam O Alaikum' '(Allah's) Peace be upon you'.
When imitating, we are to follow the Messenger of Allah (saw) example as he imitated them in the most perfect manner.
These Most Beautiful Names are also to be recited during Zikr i.e. Remembrance of Allah (swt), as remembering Him through these gives one solace (while one keeps the meaning in mind) and gives them the feeling of being closer to Him, thus strengthening one's relationship with Allah (swt). Allah (Swt) says in the Quran:
(13:28) Those who have come to believe and whose hearts find rest in the remembrance of Allah. Verily, the hearts find rest in the remembrance of Allah (swt).
These attributes cannot be interpreted or compared to human feelings and emotions as we humans have a weak nature which we're supposed to fight, we are ignorant, we are jealous, we are unjust,.
