Injustice

Injustice is a quality relating to unfairness or undeserved outcomes. The term may be applied in reference to a particular event or situation, or to a larger status quo. In Western philosophy and jurisprudence, injustice is very commonly—but not always—defined as either the absence or the opposite of justice.The sense of injustice is a universal human feature, though the exact circumstances considered unjust can vary from culture to culture.

If you feel justified in invoking divine wrath against someone, prayer number 14 in al-Sahifah al-Sajjadiyah ("His supplication when suffering acts of wrongdoing") may suffice, especially when recited regularly until the situation is resolved, and sometimes these du'as also help as a coping mechanism to gain wisdom from difficulty.

Ziyarat Ashura and Dua Alqamah do not hurt in this regard either.

Allah knows best whether death itself is the best manifestation of His justice, as sometimes justice is better served by keeping someone alive for some time. Frequently, Allah delivers justice in a manner which we could not have expected or asked for.

Of course, sometimes someone may wish to pray for someone to die to be free of their tyranny.

It is generally considered bad form to pray for the death of one's biological parents or children, perhaps due to the intimate link, but of course one could pray for other things such as relocation.

Death is guaranteed for all people anyway.

Real Muslim prays for the good for every one. We should pray for those wronged us and did injustice on us to be guided to the truth and to leave wrong way to the right way.

'We don't curse any believer. We only curse the enemies of Allah (SWT), the Prophet (SAWA) and Ahlul Bayt (AS) who are in fact the enemies of mankind.

'Wassalam.

Patience in front of injustice is always very good. Every patient will get the reward of it depending on his intention and amount if his suffering. Allah says in Quran : Verily, the patient person get their reward with out counting. (Sura 39, Verse 10).

Imam Al-Mahdi (AS) will remove injustice and tyranny from the whole world. His time of re appearance will be filled with injustice and tyranny. That does not means by any mean that we have to add on injustice and wrong to hasten his re appearance, but on the contrary, we remain as sincere followers of Ahlul Bayt (AS) responsible to do and spread good deeds which is the aim of our Infallible Imams and all the prophets (AS).

The bad deeds are from bad people as Allah (SWT) says in Quran: Evil deeds has appeared on land and sea because of what people have committed. Al-Room: Verse 41.

We should always prevent and counter evil deeds by doing and spreading good deeds but our efforts will never be enough, and the injustice and tyranny will go on till the re appearance of The Divine Leader from Allah who will remove away the evil and establish the pan state of Good and Justice.

There is no dichotomy at all.

Wassalam.

Bismillah

Thank you for your question. The Imam (af) cannot act to his full effectiveness without the support of the Ummah itself and so it is the Ummah that has chosen this situation for itself. In the same way, the Imams could not prevent the cruelty of the Ummayid and Abbasid dynasties or the injustice of some of the prior leaders as these are the leaders that the Ummah had chosen for themselves in rejecting the leadership of the Imams (as). The injustice in this time is a natural consequence of the physical absence of the Imam (af).

May you always be successful.

As Allah is always supporting the Truth against evil, Imam Al-Mahdi ( AS) being the best Servant of Allah in this time, is always acting against injustice and defending the Ummah against cruelty in ways best known to Allah ( SWT).

When we don’t know how Allah (SWT) is supporting the Truth against the evil in our time, we should not claim that Allah is not defending the Ummah against cruelty. 

Same exactly is the situation with The Most Humble Servant of Allah, Imam Al-Mahdi, who is the Divine Leader appointed by Allah ( SWT).

Wassalam.
