Umar (may Allah be well-pleased with him) was told that: During the time of Jahiliya (pre-Islamic era), a man would be subjected to injustice, so he would supplicate against the one who oppressed him, and [his supplication] would be answered quickly, and we do not see this happening in [the time of] Islam?

So he said:

That was the settlement between them and between injustice, and your appointed time (for full recompense) will be the Hour, and the Hour will be more grievous and more bitter.

قيل لعمر رضي الله عنه: كان الرجل في الجاهلية يُظلم فيدعو على من ظَلمه فيُجاب عاجلا ولا نرى ذلك في الإسلام
فقال: كان هذا جزاء بينهم وبين الظلم وإنّ موعدكم الآن الساعة والساعة أدهى وأمرّ
