Welcome to the forum! You've made a great step registering and joining our forum today.
Am glad you are asking questions and questioning the knowledge that you have at this moment in time. Maybe this is your calling to Islaam? The soul never finds rest or peace until it's established the truth!
Verily, in the remembrance of Allah do hearts find rest (13:28)
Am not sure what you have read, heard or witnessed. However, as a Muslim we don't believe hell is on this earth.
This earth is a temporary abode for us & the main purpose is to see if we can pass the trials, test and tribulations of earth.
Allah (God) has taught us through the Quraan and through our Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him (PBUH), and many other prophets before Muhammad PBUH, how to live, what we can do an what we can't do. If we live according to these rules we pass the test and if we choose not to, we fail, and sadly enter hell.
This decision can only be made by Allah and once we die.
In Islam, we are not advised to kill the 'bad' people. In fact, this is a HUGE
sin in Islam. We value life and we view life as a gift from God. A gift which cannot be abused whether that's in the form of self-harm, psychological torture, physical harm, sucide or taking another human being's life. If someone was to attack us then of course we are allowed to defend ourselves.
“Whoever kills a person [unjustly]…it is as though he has killed all mankind. And whoever saves a life, it is as though he had saved all mankind.” (Qur’an, 5:32)
Let me share a very good historical story with you.
“Among those who came before you was a man who killed 99 people. He then asked to be guided to the most prolific worshipper from the inhabitants of the earth, and he was directed to a monk. He went to him and told him that he had killed 99 people, and he asked whether it was possible for him to repent. The monk said, ‘No.’ The man killed him, thus making him the 100th victim. He then asked to be directed to the most knowledgeable of the Earth’s inhabitants, and he was guided to a scholar. He went to him and told him that he had killed 100 people, and he asked whether it was possible for him to repent. The scholar said, ‘Yes, and who will stand between you and repentance. Go to such and such land, for in it dwell a people who worship Allah, so go and worship Allah with them. And do not return to your land, for it is indeed a land of evil.’ He left, and when he reached the halfway point of his journey, he died. The angels of Mercy and the angels of Punishment disputed with one another [in regard to his case]. The angels of Mercy said, ‘He came to us repentant, advancing with his heart towards Allah.’ The angels of Punishment said, ‘Indeed, he never performed any good deeds.’ Then an angel came in the form of a human being, and both groups of angels asked him to be the judge between them. He said, ‘Measure the distance between the two lands. Whichever land he is closer to is the land that he is closer to [in terms of being of its people]. They then measured the distance and found that he was closer to the land that he was heading towards, and so it was the angels of Mercy who then took his soul.”
[al-Bukhaari: 3470 ; Muslim: 2766]
This is one of the examples of Allah's MERCY on this man.
We believe Jesus PBUH was the son of Mary (Maryam pbuh). Jesus PBUH performed miracles and invited the Israelites to the same message of submission (Islaam(, as did all of the prophets who preceded him. He was not God, nor was he the 'Son of God', but was the Messiah, a prophet of God. Jesus did not invite people to worship himseld, rather, he called them to worship God, and he himself worshipped God.
