Nothing of course can equal actually performing the Ḥajj and worshipping Allah in those blessed places. Allah knows that many people long to make Ḥajj every year but are unable to do so. Out of His generosity, He made the reward for certain actions similar to the reward of a supererogatory Hajj.

1. Remembering Allah from Fajr until Ishrāq. The Messenger of Allah(Allah’s blessings and peace be upon him)o prays Ṣubḥ (Fajr) in congregation and then sits in the place where he prayed remembering Allah until the sun rises and then prays two rakats has the reward of a complete Ḥajj and `Umrah.” He repeated “complete” three times.
[Narrated by al-Tirmidhī]

2. Attending a gathering of knowledge. The Messenger of Allah(Allah’s blessings and peace be upon him)o goes out to the mosque wanting only to learn good or teach it has the reward of a complete Ḥajj.”
[Narrated by al-Ṭabarānī]

3. Going to the mosque for the congregational prayer. The Prophet(Allah’s blessings and peace be upon him)rforms ablution in his house and then goes out to perform the obligatory prayer in the mosque has a reward similar to the reward of a Hajj pilgrim. Whoever goes out to perform the mid-morning prayer (Ḍuḥā) has a reward similar to the reward of the one performing `Umrah.
[Narrated by Abū Dāūd]

AND

Narrated Ibn Abbas (May Allah be pleased with him) : The Prophet (Peace be upon him) said,

“No good deeds done on other days are superior to those done on these (first ten days of Dhul Hijja).” Then some companions of the Prophet said, “Not even Jihad?” He replied, “Not even Jihad, except that of a man who does it by putting himself and his property in danger (for Allah’s sake) and does not return with any of those things.”

(Saheeh Al Bukhari, Book #15, Hadith #86)
