Let me start by saying that I don't believe in karma, reincarnation and other things. I just wonder how to explain cases when a person does good/bad things and after some time it comes back to him? I heard that Allah does not punish people in this life, but only when the Day of Judgment comes. I could be wrong. Accordingly, that is why I am asking.

    Your assumption is wrong as Allah may punish in this life as well, there are several verses in the Quran such as 30:41, 13:34.

According to Quran the Hell is currently surronding people. not only at Judgement day.

يَسۡتَعۡجِلُونَكَ بِٱلۡعَذَابِ وَإِنَّ جَهَنَّمَ لَمُحِيطَةُۢ بِٱلۡكَٰفِرِينَ

They hasten/urge you with the torture, and that truly Hell is surrounding/enveloping (E) with the disbelievers.(54)

Please note that this is in accordance with the grammar of the present tense in this verse.
