How did Imam Khomeini define and revive philosophy of Hajj?

Imam Khomeini maintained that the Hajj pilgrimage has been at the heart of Divine teachings from which one must seek the content of Islam's policy in all aspects of living.

The great Ka’aba is the only place for breaking these idols. Ibrahim and Muhammad, upon whom be peace, raised the cry of monotheism from the Ka’aba, and their descendant the Mahdi will also do so in the world’s last days.  

Imam stressed that believers should break idols with our cries, invitations, revelations and assemblies in Makkah. And we should reject all evils, the first of which is the great Satan [the US], lest it be said that there is "noise but few real Hajj pilgrims".
