Can he appoint someone to stone the jamaraat on his behalf and travel to his homeland?

Is it permissible for the pilgrim to appoint someone to stone the jamaraat on his behalf on the day of Eid or the second day, then go back to his homeland?.

Praise be to Allaah.

In His Holy Book, Allaah commands us to Hajj and ‘Umrah properly, as He says (interpretation of the meaning): “And perform properly (i.e. all the ceremonies according to the ways of Prophet Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم), the Hajj and ‘Umrah (i.e. the pilgrimage to Makkah) for Allaah” [al-Baqarah 2:196]. Performing them properly cannot be done unless one does them sincerely for the sake of Allaah and following the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him). So it is not permissible for the Muslim who has entered ihraam for Hajj or ‘Umrah to omit any of their actions, or to do any of the things that are forbidden whilst in ihraam which may detract from his Hajj or ‘umrah. The one who appoints someone to stone the jamaraat during the days of al-Tashreeq or on one of the days of al-Tashreeq and leaves on the day of sacrifice is regarded as one who is mistaken and who is mocking the rituals prescribed by Allaah. The one who appoints someone to stone the jamaraat on his behalf on the eleventh or twelfth during the days of al-tashreeq and does the farewell tawaaf so that he can leave quickly has gone against the teachings of the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) and what he has enjoined of performing the rituals in the proper order. He has to repent and seek forgiveness for that, and the one who does that has to offer a sacrifice for not staying overnight in Mina, and a sacrifice for not stoning the jamaraat for which he appointed a proxy and left, and a third sacrifice for the farewell tawaaf even if he circumambulated the Ka’bah when he left, because he did the tawaaf at the wrong time, for the farewell tawaaf can only be done after one has finished stoning the jamaraat. 

And Allaah is the Source of strength. may Allaah send blessings and peace upon our Prophet Muhammad and his family and companions. End quote.
