The question below was kindly answered by Brother Mustafa Jaffer.

Question

I am a 1st year college student at the University of Virginia and I currently 
volunteer at the university hospital.  I volunteer at the kidney center 
and one of my duties is to serve a beverage or a snack item to a patient if 
they request so.  

Since this is the holy month of Ramadhan and I am fasting, is it right for me 
to continue serving food and drink to the patients?  Is it considered a crime 
against myself since I am surely tempting myself psychologically by serving 
the patients beverages and food items?  I suppose this situation is mirrored 
for restaurant owners and similar individuals.  

Thank you for your time.

ANSWER:

It is not forbidden to serve food and drink while you are fasting. As for
the temptation that is part of the discipline of fasting.

Wasalaam,

Mustafa
