What does a wicked person have

Q 2: We notice that many people avow their Fisq (flagrant violation of Islamic law) and Kufr (disbelief). Sometimes they abuse Islam openly. They tell others that they do not offer Salah (Prayer) may Allah protect you and us from this! We also notice that some evil "so-called" scholars issue fatwas for the sake of attaining worldly benefit not for the sake of Islam. I made Du`a' (supplication) to Allah that He either guide them back to the path of truth or seize them with His mighty punishment. Is it (Part No. 24; Page No. 208) permissible to state such alternatives in our Du`a'?

A: By making Du`a' this way, you are asking Allah to guide them while entrusting their guidance to the Will and Wisdom of Allah. If they become guided, that will be good; otherwise we ask Allah to protect us from their evil by seizing them with His mighty punishment in recompense for their wrongdoing. It is permissible to make Du`a' to Allah that He may purify the earth from their wrongdoing.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
