What is Hell?

If you look at the Old Testament, there’s plenty of examples of YHWH punishing people for not following him. Some are also said to go to some dark place, but it’s never really described where they went, or what happened to them. It’s also debatable whether Jesus implied to his followers that you will go to Hell if you don’t worship him.

So what is the description of Hell that we have? Dante’s Inferno?

The Islamic version of Hell is rather similar to Dante’s Inferno. No other belief system in the world believes in hell other than Islam and Christianity (some sects, not all).

Why?
