So in this day an age with the increase of globalization, increase of communication, networking, more access to information and people, theres more opportunity to learn about Islam, Islam can reach a lot more people, but at the same time theres a lot more propaganda, a lot more people trying to skew the words of Allah, to create tension with and within the Muslim community. Theres also a lot more access to haram and temptations. But at the same times theres more reminders to Muslims to stay on the path of Islam.
Heres also another thing to think about, we have examples of degenerate societies in the west, not only that but they do studies on themselves which end up exposing the negative effects of their ideals which go against Islam. Of course the main reason we are Muslims are not the rulings specifically but because we believe in Allah and his messenger, also that these results may not be the reasons why Allah gave his rulings and we can only guess the wisdom, but these insights I think really aid in convincing many Muslims.
