In this verse, it is a reference to the need for the grace of Allah, which helps him to fulfill his right, and there is a share of Muslims or a power of religion. He is commendable and what he asks to retain his luck or for what he share himself. He is ailing. Once he has settled into the heart of the pilgrim, he feels that he is seeking the grace of God, so he is in a state of worship for God, which is not incompatible with the worship of hajj, in the direction of God.
