Daâ€˜wa does not merely concern theology and religion, but it also addresses socio-political aspects. This is highly dependent on the background of the daâ€˜i (preacher) and public space of politics of religion in which the daâ€˜wa message is conveyed. Using the qualitative method, this research focuses on three questions; what are the priority daâ€˜wa message in the contemporary Netherlands? How is the suitable qualification of the daâ€˜i for the context of Netherlands? How does the politics of religion support the life of Muslim migrants? On that question, some mosques and Muslim communities are chosen for data collection. The research shows that the most delivered topic of daâ€˜wa message is about aqÄ«dah (creed) and sharÄ«â€˜ah (Islamic law), then akhlÄq (ethics). The background of the daâ€˜i heavily influences the selection of daâ€˜wa material. There are two major streams on the matter; Salafi and Sunni. The daâ€˜wa activity by Sunni daâ€˜is tends to be more open, compared to Salafi activities. Concerning the politics of religion, the Dutch government launched a program of Pillarization of Islam so that the government maintains the controls over the activities of Muslim migrants, as well as for the benefits of the multi-origin and multi-ethnic Muslim migrants. However, this measure proves to be ineffective and the daâ€˜wa goes on without following this pillarization program. Being a Muslim is because of personal will, not just because of sermon.
