During Hajj, Muslims try their best to seek forgiveness from Allah. Feeling so close to Allah, the Muslims will be crying and begging for His acceptance. They will never cease to chant the talbiyah (Here I am, O Allaah, here I am. Here I am, You have no partner, here I am. Verily all praises and blessings are Yours, and all sovereignty, You have no partner).
Hajj literally means, “to continuously strive to reach one’s goal.” The Hajj, or Pilgrimage to Mecca, is a once-in-a-lifetime obligation for Muslims who have the physical and financial ability to undertake the journey.
Indeed, the first House [of worship] established for mankind was that at Makkah – blessed and a guidance for the worlds (Quran 3:96).
There is no place on Earth as venerated, as central or as holy to so many people as Makkah. By any objective standard, this valley in the Hijaz region of Arabia is the most celebrated place on Earth. It is so fortunate for those who were given a chance by Allah to see the Kaabah with their eyes, touch it with their hands, and sujood in front of it with their foreheads.
