Saying Talbiyah collectively

Q 4: What is the ruling on pilgrims who say Talbiyah (devotional expressions chanted at certain times during Hajj and ‘Umrah) collectively, where one of them says it and the others repeat after him?

A: This is not permissible, because it is not authentically reported that the Prophet (peace be upon him) or any of the Rightly-Guided Caliphs (may Allah be pleased with them) who succeeded him did this; rather, it is a Bid‘ah (innovation in religion).May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
