Amira lakum

Question:

Non-Jew asks to borrow a book from a Jew. The Jew fumbles around in a dark room looking for the book, and the non Jew turns on the light.

The non-Jew did the melacha for the Jew, but really he did it for himself so that the Jew can find the book faster.

Answer:

It would seem that the gentile is actualy doing it for his own benefit, therefore it is permitted.

Best wishes
