Praise be to Allaah.
That is not permissible, because the action mentioned is not included in the eight categories on which zakaah may be spent.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah's Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
