I don't think Jews believe in a hell of any kind sweetie.So you don't believe in hell? I find it interesting that your views occasionally align with mainstream Islam.
The Quran very much stresses on the existence of hell in order to keep followers in check. I'm not sure what type of metaphor a blazing fire where molten brass and boiling water is the food of disbelievers alludes to if it isn't torture.
Are you Jewish? I heard they don't believe it's a place of torture but more of a "spiritual cleanse".
Some passages are for all civilizations, but some are time bound. For example the Quran commands that one should prepare horses for war. It's a command like no other, a command like the command against adultery. It must be obeyed. But today horses are obsolete for war. We use tanks and warplanes. So what should we do? If you take a literalist approach, you must use horses. But no sane person does that. Not even people who claim to be literalists. Religion is always subject to interpretation.But it's supposed to be timeless and meant for every civilization I don't know what to believe now
