Compared to oral, da'wah through writing becomes more urgent and effective, which is preaching through social media with the internet and writings containing da'wah messages.

But the purpose of da'wah with the model can only be realized if it is supported by effective media. That is, in the process of preaching the preachers or dai not only presenting the material verbally, but conveying the material of the preaching through social media so that the material can be read anywhere and anytime like the role of social media today.
