We have never destroyed a city without giving it prior warning as a reminder. We were never unjust. (Surat ash-Shu'ara: 208-209)

In the age in which we live, one observes degeneration, both physical and spiritual, in society at large accompanied by economic and political instability.

(Surat at-Tawba 32-33)

In Surat an-Nur, Allah informs his true believers who engage in "right actions" without associating partners with Him and who purely seek His good pleasure, that they will attain power, as preceding believers always did:

Allah has promised those of you who believe and do right actions that He will make them successors in the land as He made those before them successors, and firmly establish for them their religion with which He is pleased and give them, in place of their fear, security. "They worship Me, not associating anything with Me." Any who disbelieve after that, such people are deviators. (Surat an-Nur: 55)

One point deserves mention here. In the above verse, the requisite for the diffusion of Islam is given; the existence of believers who are purely slaves of Allah without ascribing partners to Him and who engage in good deeds in His way…
