Can one give zakah to their teacher?

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Darulifta-Deoband.com
Can a person give zakah to his teacher (Ustad)? An earlier reply would be much appreciated.

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

(Fatwa: 967/994/L=09/1437)

If the teacher is poor and eligible for receiving zakah then a student may give zakah to his teacher. However, it is better that instead of giving zakah amount to a teacher he supports him by other ways.
