Education is essential, especially in an era of disruption and moral decline. Hence, there is a need for different forms of religious instruction, especially in the digital realm. Women should also be able to access the digital realm, as they comprise a large portion of the religious population. Only women have a better understanding of women's issues. Therefore, empowering Muslim women requires the help of female digital experts. This research shows that many women are also educating and spreading the teachings of Islam in the digital sector. Despite the concept of women in the public space as aurat, women still show their existence and can keep up with the times. This research was conducted with a case study using a descriptive analysis method through a qualitative approach. Primary data sources are observation, interviews, and documentation with a research sample of 10 ustadzah who are viral on social media. The results showed that the concept of women appearing in the public sphere helps da'wah and social roles because the existence of women is closely related to their work for the community.

Furthermore, preachers in the current era need digital, technological, and human literacy to survive. In research on women, gender theory is often used as the basis of research. However, this research is more focused on the theory of the contribution of female clerics in the digital era; how they master digital literacy to transform religious values into digital. So that these female scholars can also preach to people who consume digital media so that there are changes in behavior and how to interpret life. Moreover, ideally, this daiyah should emulate the previous female scholars and place them as ideal role models: acting as muharrik (mover), murabbi and mu'allim (educator), munadzzim (organizer/leader), mura'i (protector), and munasik (supervisor) for the people simultaneously, so that their existence can indeed enlighten the community.
