Great. It works. Thank you for your kindly help.
Can you tell me .wrapper meaning?
For me, it works with


:global(.a-class-inside-component) {
padding: 1px;
}

Maybe .wrapper has other meaning?
Thank you.

And if using this method, I have to use !important to override component.
Can you tell me if any other way is not using !important.
Thank you.

Since

:global(.a-class-inside-component) {
    padding: 1px;
}

will be compiled to

.a-class-inside-component {
    padding: 1px;
}

it will affect every components which uses class .a-class-inside-component globally.

If you want the CSS to be applied globally, this is alright.
If you want to scope the CSS to 1 component only, it's recommended to use a wrapper class.

Thank you very much.
Should I use !important in my custom modules.scss to override css?
Is there any other way?

Generally, it's considered a bad practice to use important. Don't use it unless you absolutely have to.
