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 on the host provided that the guest is considered to be the host’s dependent; 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 to be the host’s dependent and the guest’s fiṭrah is not the responsibility of the owner of the house.
