Question
We had guests come over just before Shabbas was out and they needed to leave asap, can one say havdallah before he has done ma’ariv and fulfil the mitzvah? (Do i have to redo havdallah after maariv, can i drink the havdallah wine?)
Answer
You can make Havdalah before Ma'ariv in such a situation. You are obliged to drink the wine and you do not have to repeat Havdalah after Ma'ariv. Rabbi Yosef Weitzen
