This study aims to determine the form of interpersonal communication between married couples of different nationalities, namely between Indigenous Women in Morosi District, Konawe Regency, Southeast Sulawesi and Chinese Foreign Workers (TKA) who work in the Morosi mining industrial area, in providing an understanding of Islam. This type of research is descriptive qualitative. The sampling technique was carried out by means of snowball sampling. The method of data collection was carried out by observation and in-depth interviews. The results showed that the basic religious understanding given by indigenous women to their husbands who were converts included how to pray, fast, and provide an understanding to change the habit of eating haram food and the prohibition of drinking alcohol and Islamic teachings to cover the genitals. The form of interpersonal communication is done gradually and slowly. They consistently invite and set an example for their husbands in terms of worship, especially the five daily prayers. The wife also gave an explanation about the teachings of Islam in carrying out daily life such as not being allowed to drink alcohol, eating haram food, teaching covering the genitals and so on. This research can be a guide in building interpersonal communication for couples from different nationalities who often experience obstacles in communicating with each other caused by differences in communication methods and differences in cultural backgrounds.
