Question regarding the word "ummah"

Peace upon the believers,

I begin with a request to keep me anonymous.

When I see the world and so called "Ummah" of today I realise they are not muslim as a whole( I make general takfir on them), though there are muslims known or unknown to me living in it.

Also as far as I understand this mass kufr was present in this "Ummah " for a while now. I don't take  this so called ummah as "muslim ummah".If both of us agree on this (which seems you do from your website)then my question is below.

I want to know how to understand the word Ummah or " My ummah "found in the  ahadith ,specially in those ahadith describing what the ummah will/will not do it later days. Do only the muslims are refered to in the word ummah or there are more to that?

may Allah guide us all.

Shaykh'ul Islm Ibnu Taymiyyah (Rahimahullh) stated,

والعالم يعرف الجاهل؛ لأنه كان جاهلا، والجاهل لا يعرف العالم لأنه لم يكن عالما

"The lim (scholar) recognizes the Jhil (ignorant) since he was once a Jhil. The Jhil does not recognize the lim since he has never been an lim." (Shaykh'ul Islm Ibnu Taymiyyah, Majm'ul Fatw, 13/235)
