Depth of Hell
It is narrated on the authority of Abu Musa Ash'ari (may Allah be pleased with him) that the Holy Prophet (may Allah be pleased with him), describing the depth of Hell, remarked: If a stone is thrown into Hell, it will take seventy years to reach it's bottom.
It is narrated on the authority of Abu Huraira (may Allah be pleased with him) that they were sitting in the blessed company of the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) when they heard something falling. The Apostle of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) observed: "Do you know what it is?" We (the companion) respectfully replied: "Allah and his Apostle know best." The Prophet observed: "It is the noise produced by a stone that was dropped by Allah into Hell some seventy years before, and it has touched the ground now."

Walls of Hell
The Holy Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) has observed that Hell has been encircled by four walls, and the breadth of each wall covers a period of forty years---that is to say, each wall is so wide that it requires forty years' of continuous walking to cover its breadth.

Gates of Hell
The Holy Qur'an has observed about the gates of Hell. "And verily Hell is the promised place for them all. It has seven gates, and each gate has a separate portion for each one of them." (Surah Hijar). The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) has himself observed: "Hell has seven doors, and one of them has been reserved for those who draw a sword against my followers."

Darkness and Fire of Hell
The Holy Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) stated: "Hell had been inflamed continuously for one thousand years. Consuequently, its fire became red. Again, it had been burn for one thousand years and its red color became white. Still again it had been kindled for one thousand years, and it's white colored flames turned into black. So, the existing color of the fire of Hell is black as black as a dark night." Another authority states that the flames of Hell do not illuminate, it always remains dark. An authentic narrative from 'Sahih Bukhari' and 'Sahih Mulsim' report that the Holy Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) observed: "This worldy fire is the seventieth part of the Fire of Hell." His companions (may Allah be pleased with them) said: "It is enough to reduce (a sinner) to ashes." The apostle of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: "If you were to add sixty-nine degrees to the worldly fire, it equals the fire of Hell." Another narration reveals that if the denizens of Hell lie on the worldly fire, they will enjoy sound sleep, because it (worldly fire) is much cooler than the Fire of Hell.

An Estimate of the Torments in Hell
The Holy Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him)has said: "The lightest punishement would be inflicted on the sinner whose boots and straps would be filled with fire; and it will cause his mind to boil miserably. He will take this punishment for the severest, whereas it is the very first stage of the hellish tortures."

That's just the basics. Pick up the book "the specatles of death by K.M. Islam to learn all about death.

Salaam Alaikum
