Significances and excellence's, of the Hajj:

Hajj the Holy Pilgrimage is the best means to strengthen religious communication and coordination among the Muslims’ of the whole world hailing from different countries with their separate nationality, race, language and color and to collect them on a single platform thereby making them rally round the banner of "Kalimah Tauheed" 
[the Code of Oneness of [Allaah Subhanhu Wa Ta'alaa] which is the pivot of Islaam.
The simple unstitched white clothing which Prophet Aadam [Alaiehis-Salaam] wore is proposed for Haajis so that the Muslims who all believe in One Allaah, one Messenger, one Book and one Ka'bah look alike sans any social ranking and status thereby to demonstrate outward religious harmony and cohesion too.
