Criticism of the Modern Muslim Ummah by the Prophet

Quran 22:47:

And they urge you to hasten the punishment. But Allah will never fail in His promise. And indeed, a day with your Lord is like a thousand years of those which you count.

The following excerpt is taken from “Exegesis of The Holy Qur’ân Commentary and Reflections” by Allamah Noorudin pg. 744-745:

“One day with your Lord is (sometimes) equal to one thousand
years by your counting.” The Holy Prophet (pbuh) is reported to have
said that the first three centuries of Islam would be its best period,
after which falsehood would spread and a period of darkness would
set in that will extend to over a thousand years (Tirmidhî). This saying
of the Holy Prophet (pbuh) explains the verse under discussion. Those
spoken of here are the opponents of truth who were to come later and who have been allowed to oppose the advancement of Islam for a
thousand years.
