Ustadz Abdul Somad (UAS) is a currently controversial yet famous Muslim preacher in Indonesia. His speeches are delivered for various background listeners in various places within Indonesia and overseas. One of his linguistics aspects that is obviously found in his speeches is code switching. This study uses UAS’s speeches delivered for the authorities of Sabah kingdom Malaysia, local people of Payakumbuh West Sumatra and for the students and lecturers of Islamic Economic Institute of Tazkia in West Java. Analysis of a range of his speeches suggests that UAS’s code switching of English and local languages occurs metaphorical switching. His speeches were significantly variable but not aimless, and depended primarily on particular audiences. His language competence strengthens his positioning as modern Islamic preacher who has higher international educational background.
