let;s put it like this. if you were a gambler and you are told that the hereafter is gamble if you bet on it existing and it doesnt you will end like every other person, no consequences for all your actions. and if on the other side it does then you either suffer or enjoy.Idk, I'm not sure if I could ever believe 100% that Islam is correct.
I just don't understand how people can know for sure whether God exists or not.

what would you bet on. in any blind gamble with possible grave consequences, survival instincts always trump over limited logic.
good question but now that shifts us from your previously skeptical position on the existence of god or religion to which is the probable right one.that shifting mindset is step one. even prophet ibrahim had his doubts but they stemmed from genuine and sincere curiosity and earnest seeking of the truth. god asks us to believe the unseen and that"s the ultimate test of faith. he knows our limitations and thats why anything that has sincere intentions is healthy as long as it hasnt any rebellion or arrogance in it. islam goes further and tells you any sinful thought is not punished as long as its not acted upon, whilst any good thought is rewarded. islam doesnt police thought only actions, but at the same time for your own sake evil thoughts are discouraged. may god guide you and make your quest sincere.I get that, but couldn't you say that for other religions too? What makes you think you won't be going to the Christian hell?
Honestly, nothing. I think at one point in your journey out of organised religion, you realise there is nothing that will bring you back. It’s like reversing on your own logic that made you leave in the first place. For example: among many factors, the morality in Islam was just not clicking with me.What would need to happen in order you to come back to islam ?
