Question: What is the ruling regarding making a long supplication behind the maqaam Ibraaheem?

Response: From the innovations that some people do when they stand behind the maqaam Ibraaheem is that they make a long supplication which they call “du’aa al-maqaam”. There is no basis for this from the Sunnah of the Messenger ﷺ. This is an innovation that is prohibited. Along with this being an innovation, every innovation is [a door to] misguidance, whereby some people hold [small] books which contain this supplication and they begin supplicating in a loud voice and those behind them respond by saying “Aameen”. This is an innovation, and with this there is interference upon worshippers [in prayer] around the maqaam Ibraaheem. From that which has preceded, interference of worshippers [in prayer] is prohibited.
