Shaykh al-Islaam Ibn Taymiyyah said in Majmoo al-Fataawaa (27/72):
As for the one who comes to a grave of a prophet, or a righteous person or to what he believes to be a grave of a prophet or righteous person when it is not like that, and asks his need from him such as asking him to end his illness or his beast's illness, or fulfil his debt, or take vengeance from his enemy, or to heal him, his family or his beast and what is like this, from those matters that none but Allaah, the Mighty and Majestic has power over, then this is clear shirk, it is obligatory for (the one falling into it), that his repentance to be sought (so either he repents) otherwise he is killed.
Requesting the dead to supplicate entails making them as intermediaries between Allaah and them, from whom intercession is sought - since asking for the supplication of another is the meaning of intercession, so when they go to the dead and ask them to supplicate for them, this is making them intermediaries and soliciting their intercession.
