    Is there a specific book your going to use?
    "Do not be fooled by the one that recites the Quran for that is only words that we utter. Rather, look at the one who acts upon it." - Umar

    Allah's Messenger (saws) said “O Ka’b Ibn ‘Ujrah, I seek Allah’s protection for you from the leadership of fools. There shall be rulers, whoever enters upon them, then aids them in their oppression and validates their lies, then he is not from me nor I from him, and he shall not be admitted to the Hawd..." [Saheh at-Targheb wat-Tarheb #2243]
