These are not bad times. Muslims should not be so negative, there has been much worse times. There are aspects that are bad about this time and certainly one of the greatest calamities of the time is that we do not have a lot of people of knowledge any more and we do not have the levels of deen and things like this, but just in terms of outward dunya calamities, this period is nothing; if you read history, this period is nothing.
The real calamities of this age are spiritual calamities, they are not worldly calamities. So if we are going to weep over the calamities of this age we should be weeping about the lack of religion, about the lack of spirituality, etc.
