Serving haraam food in a restaurant

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: My question is regarding doing a job in non Muslim restaurants where we have to serve haraam food. Is it permissible to work in such places?


A: Just as it is impermissible to consume haraam, similarly it is impermissible to serve haraam food to someone. Hence it is impermissible for you to work at such a restaurant. You should look for another job.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
