The World Federation One Stop Fiqh

Ruling 2008

The fiṭrah of a guest who arrives at one’s house after sunset on the eve of Eid al‑Fiṭr is, based on precaution, obligatory for the host provided that the guest is considered the host’s dependant; otherwise, it is not. If a person is invited to break his fast (ifṭār) on the eve of Eid al‑Fiṭr, he is not considered the host’s dependant and the guest’s fiṭrah is not the responsibility of the owner of the house.
