It is not permissible to pray against somebody because of this hadith
- Muslim (3014) narrated that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Do not pray against yourselves, do not pray against your children, do not pray against your wealth, lest that coincide with a time when Allaah is asked and He answers your prayer.”
also, this verse of the Quran strongly relates to the matter
8 “Not for you (O Muhammad, but for Allaah) is the decision; whether He turns in mercy to (pardons) them or punishes them; verily, they are the Zaalimoon (polytheists, disobedients and wrongdoers)”
[Aal ‘Imraan 3:128]
If by praying against someone you meant cursing. That is allowed for specific things but you need to be very careful because of the hadith
- Abu Ad-Darda reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said:Verily, when a servant curses something, the curse rises to the heaven and the gates of* heaven close upon it. It turns right and left and if it does not find somewhere to go, it will return to that which was cursed only if it deserved to be curse, otherwise the curse will return to the one who made it.
Source: Sunan Abu Dawud 4905, Grade: Hasan
- It is permissible to curse all those whom Allaah and His Messenger have cursed, but as for cursing specific people, if it is known that the person died in kufr, then it is permissible to curse him. But with regard to a specific [Muslim] evildoer, we should not curse him, because the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) forbade cursing the person who used to drink wine, even though he had cursed the wine-drinkers in general; *however cursing a specific person if he is an evildoer or promoter of bid’ah is a point of dispute among the scholars.
