Imam Suyuti rahimahullah said:

Chapter: Asking about that which does not concern him

“From that [the innovations] is for a man to ask his brother: where did you come from? What do you want? And he is solliciting information [to spread/broadcast]

[al-Amr bi ‘Ittiba’ wan-Nahi ‘an Ibtidaa’ pg. 273]
