the mistakes which occur during the tawaaf
*Please appropriately reference

Question: There are some mistakes which occur
whilst making tawaaf,
what are those mistakes?
pilgrims adhere to specific supplications whilst making tawaaf.
There are groups from amongst them that take (their supplications)
from one designated to read and then they all repeat this
as a group in chorus. This is a mistake from two points:
This is adhering to a supplication which is not mentioned
to be adhered to in the this place (tawaaf)
because no specific supplication has been mentioned on the
authority of the Prophet (sal-Allaahu
`alayhe wa sallam) whilst making tawaaf;
The group supplication in chorus is an innovation, which also
interferes with the (concentration of) other pilgrims making
That which is legislated is for everyone to supplicate on
their own without raising the voices.
