Talbiyah / Labbaik

When the pilgrim raises his voice with Talbiyah, he remembers that he answers the call of the Almighty and that there will be another call on the Last Day, when people will be either punished or rewarded.
The Talbiyah signifies a response to the summons of Allah, Most High.
And proclaim the pilgrimage among men: they will come to thee on foot and (mounted) on every kind of camel, lean on account of journeys through deep and distant mountain highways. [Al-Hajj 22:27] This trains the soul to acknowledge the Oneness of Allah and to be sincere towards Him. The pilgrim starts his Hajj with Tawhid, and continues to recite the Talbiyah with its words of Tawhid, and he moves from one action to the next with Tawhid.
When the pilgrim is reciting the Talbiyah, he feels a connection with all other created beings, as they all join with him in submission to Allah alone and echo his Talbiyah.
The Messenger (pbuh) said: “There is no Muslim who recites the Talbiyah but whatever is to his right and to his left of stones, rocks and clods recites it with him, to the furthest point to the east and the west – meaning from his right and his left.” [At-Tirmidhi, Ibn Khuzaymah, and al-Bayhaqi] Shaykh Muhammad Saleh Al-Munajjid (http://www.islam-qa.com)
