Religious instinct is a human nature. It is an instinct to follow tauhid (oneness of God in Islam) that was given by Allah SWT when the first man was created. It is as described in QS Al-A’raf 172. On the other hand, people always deal with the development and changes in society. Therefore, dakwah (Islamic religious proselytizing) should be acceptable to everyone, and it must be able to enlighten all people regardless of their religions. Nowadays, there are some problems in religion field which are related to public dissatisfaction towards Islam. Gerakan Jamaah Dakwah Jamaah (GJDJ) in Muhammadiyah is dakwah movement at grassroots level that attempts to solve the problems and challenges such as poverty, ignorance, backwardness, health problems, injustice, and moral degradation. This research is a descriptive qualitative research. In collecting the data, it used in-depth interview by interviewing the members of Pimpinan Pusat Muhammadiyah and some informants from certain religious groups. Data were analyzed by using interactive analysis. For the validity test, this research used the triangulation of sources and methods. Gerakan jamaah (congregation movement) is conducted by following these 4 steps: consolidation, looking for friends (solidarity), completion and evaluation step. Consolidation of dakwah jamaah is performed by knowing every person in the core jamaah (congregation) and also knowing prospective jamaah. Consolidation as the most important step is done by greeting each other, smiling, having good thoughts towards others, showing openness, humbleness, and compassion. All those deeds will bring sympathy and love among jamaah. After the consolidation step, it is followed by solidarity step. Here, the members should accustom themselves to have discussions and choose neighbors who need their supports. The next steps are completion, evaluation, correction and revision.
