Islam teaches that Hell is a real place prepared by God (ALLAH) for those who do not believe in Him, rebel against his laws, his books (Quran, Bible, Torah, Psalms) and reject His messengers (Muahammed, Jesus, Mosses, Abraham etc). Hell is an actual place, not a mere state of mind or a spiritual entity. The horrors, pain, anguish, and punishment are all real, but different in nature than their earthly counterparts. Hell is the ultimate humiliation and loss, and nothing is worse than it:

'' Our Lord! Surely, Whom You admit to the Fire, indeed You have disgraced him, and never will the wrongdoers fine any helpers.'' (Quran 3:192)

'' Know they not that whoever opposes God and His Messenger Muhammad (peace be upon him), certainly for him will be the fire of hell to abide therein? That is the extreme disgrace.'' (Quran 9:63)
