Can money transfers for kurban in other areas, let alone be distributed to areas that need meat or to support Islamic preaching, for example to prevent Christianization?
The chairman of the Fatwa Commission of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia in the past, Shaykh 'Abdul' Aziz bin Baz rahimahullah was asked, "A Muslim who lives in a non-Muslim country, if he slaughtered udhiyah (kurban) there, he would not find anyone who needed it who would. fed from the results of the sacrifice. For this reason, he transferred some money to the poor in other areas to make sacrifices in their country. What is the law of this thing? "
The Shaykh replied, "It doesn't matter that way. If he sent money then sacrifices there. It is good as long as it is through trusted people. If he only sends a certain amount of money, that's fine. However, if you do the qurbani at the shohibul qurbani place and later make it easier for your colleagues and friends to eat it, it will be more afdhol. For example, he carried it out in an Islamic institution in his country and then he gave gifts to his colleagues and Muslims, also including infidels - apart from being infidels of harbi - because it is almsgiving sunnah, that's better. But if he sends sacrifices to Africa - for example - for the mujahidin - if there is - or he only sends a certain amount of money, then it doesn't matter. " (Fatawa Nur 'alad Darb, 18: 206)
Shaykh 'Abdul' Aziz bin Baz was also asked, "Is it legal to only transfer a certain amount of money to buy a sacrificial animal and then the animal is slaughtered for the poor outside the region?"
He replied, "It is okay if someone slaughtered for his family or made sacrifices outside the area. However, sacrifice in the midst of his family is even more afdhol. If someone makes a sacrifice at his house, then he eats some of it and distributes it to those around him, then it is better because he imitates the practice of the Prophet sallallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam because when he did the sacrifice in the midst of his family then it was eaten and given to others. And if he wants to make sacrifices other than in his environment to be distributed to the poor in other areas, that still gets rewarded. What is distributed is counted as alms. " (Fatawa Nur 'alad Darb, 18: 207)
Shaykh 'Abdullah bin' Abdirrahman Al Jibrin rahimahullah was asked, "What is the law of sacrificing outside the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, even though shohibul qurbani includes those who live and live there, is it legal to sacrifice outside of it?"
The answer from him, "It's okay for you to transfer some money to an Islamic country where the people really need to eat, then the slaughter is left to Muslims who are truly trustworthy and knowledgeable about Islamic law. Many of the families who sacrifice a number of sacrificial animals can reach ten or twenty, which is generally a will, then after being slaughtered no one eats it on the day of 'Ied. The meat is only hoarded or given to those who really don't need it. So, transferring to other regions is better than leaving it to those who are not entitled to receive it. Allah knows best.

Shaykh Kholid Mushlih - a student and son-in-law of Shaykh Muhammad bin Sholih Al 'Uthaimin - believes that the origin of the qurbani is indeed the sacrifice in his country. However, if there is an urge, it can be transferred to other areas. (Source:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EW-jD_Pf_hY)
