One belief is Hajj individual and the other is social worship. The individual adoration aspect is surely the guarding of oneself who makes to the Hajj pilgrimage. They should pray, repent and should make a covenant with Allah alone. As well as the other social aspect of loves is concerned it is discriminating between skin colors, nationalities, and tendencies to depict Islamic unity.

The Prophet’s (S.A.W.S) Acts of Worship during Hajj
Realizing and embellishing Tawheed (Islamic monotheism)
The code of conduct of ‘Tawheed’ is of the foremost principle of Islam which can be generalized by the Prophet’s strict devotion towards it. Taking a start to the Hajj pilgrimage, he used to enter in the ritual until he had cast Jamratul-‘Aqabah.
His Talbiyah went as follows: “Labbayka Allahumma labbayk. Labbayka laa shareeka laka labbayk. Innal-hamda wan-n’imata laka wal-mulk, laa shareeka lak”.
Working Differently from Polytheists
Prophet (S.A.W.S) always denounced those who used to praise more than one God and praise us to not follow their footsteps. These are the ones who are seen in his stopping with the pilgrims at Arafah.
“All Jaahiliyah (pre-Islamic) traditions are under my feet,” the Prophet (S.A.W.S) declared.
Supplication and Humility during Hajj
According to the Prophet, all the supplications towards Allah includes as follows:
Pursuing Almighty Allah in Tawaaf.
- Standing on the hills of Safa and Marwah and running between them.
- Offering lengthy supplications on the day of Arafah.
- Riding on the camelback.
- Raising his hands for begging for Sadaqah (Charity)
- Stopping on a spot after Salah has a special status of submissiveness during Hajj in Islam.
The significance of Tawaaf around Kaaba
Major important rites of worship during Hajj are Tawaaf around the Kaabah and performing Sa’ee between Safa and Marwa. Only Tawaaf around Ka’bah is lawful in Islam and the other Tawaafs people do around the grave, shrines are strictly prohibited.
Offer two rakahs when entering a mosque and doing abrupt Tawaaf is required as Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W.S) has asked us. Praying Tahajuud and Witr in Tahiyyatul Masjid has a great reward from Allah. Circulating the Kaaba 7 times with audible prayers should be between fear and hope of worships.
