I will define Allah using Surah Al Ikhlas which discusses the most crucial attributes of Allah, and Surah Al Araf which shows the mercy of Allah. Basically, all-powerful, complete/perfect, one (monotheism), and merciful.
[Surah Al Ikhlas Chapter 112 Verses 1-4] “Say: He is Allah, the One and Only. Allah, the Eternal, Absolute. He begetteth not, nor is He begotten. And there is none like unto Him.”
[Surah Al Araf Chapter 7 Verse 156] ... My mercy extendeth to all things....
-- Framework for the opinion --
This framework addreses the main presuppositions which will form the guidelines for contention.
→ Islam is True
While this may seem like ahuge presupposution it is only relevant to four other theological presuppositions in this answer which are:
→ Hell fuoco is an eternal conscious torment
→ Allah both knows what will happen whilst people still having Free Will (Molinism)
→ Human Beings have a Soul that exists eternally and is connected to the physical body (Dualism)
→ only intentional sin is weighed, unintentional sin is not. For example, the unlearned would not be punished because it is unintentional whereas people who know about the religion and go against guidelines would be punished.

C1: Status and Morality [1] My first contention focuseson the severity of sin based on the status of the being it is being directed towards. This falls in line with general moral intuitions. It would be considered much più immoral to harm o kill a highly respected member of society rather than the common man. The argument doesn't require societal structures at all. Surely, the immorality felt da killing an ant o a fly is much different than that of another human since the status of the human is higher than that of the ant o fly. Now when we consider Allah, a being of infinite greatness and supremacy the level of immorality rises to infinity. Many times when committing sins, Muslims are encouraged to not think of the weight of the sin but the greatness of the one we are transgressing “ Do not look at the smallness of the sin, rather look at the greatness of the One Whom te have disobeyed. ” [2] Since the più serious a crime is the più serious its punishment should be, all sin against Allah merits an infinite punishment. An important consideration with this idea of the level of immorality increasing with higher status is the intentionality of the sin. For example, hitting someone with your car da accident rather than on purpose is much less immoral o even amoral rather than the latter. In Islam, only intentional sin will be counted as was agreed upon in the framework in R1. An intentional sin would be someone who has heard the message of Islam, its guidelines, and freely transgresses them. People who have never heard themessage of Islam will not be condemned to eternal damnation for their unintentional sins. C2: Consequences of Sin While my first contention argues that all sin (given people who have heard Islam) merits an infinite punishment based on status, this contention shows that some sins based on their consequences merit an eternal punishment. Many people who reject o who are critical of the teaching of the eternal nature of hell often say that the amount of sins are finite and thus doesn't warrant an eternity in hell.However, what they seem to focus on is the time aspect of the sin rather than their consequences. While an act of sin maybe temporal, the effects of some sins have eternal consequences. For example, consider heinous sins in Islam such as rape o murder. The consequences on the mind/soul of those affected da murder and rape are permanent for all those who have been involved. Since these crimes are arguably are primarily on the mind, their consequences are everlasting. Considering the agreed upon framework of this opinion, the soul continues to exist after death and as such the effects continue to last until Allah relieves them. Irrespective of whether the damage is repaired, the punishment should be eternal. An analogy to illustrate, suppose one who was stabbed da another person was hospitalized and brought back to good health in a reasonable span of time. Simply because the pain and damage caused has been repaired, it doesn't mean that the one who wronged doesn't pay the punishment anymore. In fact, they still would pay the same penalty regardless of whether the victim was healed o not. Similarly, because the one whom sin with eternal consequences has been inflicted upon is relieved itdoesn't mean the one who has committed the sin is also relieved.

C3: Free Will This contention shows that Hell is ultimately a choice made da the individual and not be blamed upon Allah. On Islam this entire life is a test, it is a preparation for the successivo life to come. Those who are righteous and freely follow the guidelines of Islam (after hearing the message) whilst constantly repenting for their inevitable wrong doings will attain paradise and those who choose to not (after hearing the message) will reap the results of their evil deeds, eternal damnation. There is an important distinction that needs to be made when I say that one chooses to go to hell. Many times, a person would object that it is inconceivable that one would choose to go into a burning fuoco eternally. However they are forgetting that hellfire is a choice not in the direct sense but in an indirect one, it is a consequence of rejecting the teachings and moral guidelines of Islam. When one chooses to freely reject Islam, they are simultaneously choosing hell. This is what is meant, and it is in this way that hell fuoco is a choice made da the individual. - - - - - - - - - - - - In conclusion, an eternal hell is justified because of the infinite severity of intentional sin due to the infinite status of Allah. Some sins are indeed infinitely severe due to their everlasting consequences on the soul of an individual and finally, hell fuoco is essentially an indirect choice made da an individual when they freely choose to reject the message of Islam. All these reasons strongly support the doctrine of an eternal hell. The resolution is affirmed.

I think it's just like any other religion. People who follow it have their own beliefs. I can not stand it when a group uses Islam as a reason to justify their doings. Not only does it not work,it also causes people to fear and be mean to Muslims. Not all Muslims are bad. The majority of them are kind people.
