If someone does kufr and recites the Shahad to convert back to Islam, while reciting the kalima does he need to recite it with understanding of the meaning. In case he knows the meaning of the kalima and believes in it but while saying the kalima he does not focus on the meaning, will his conversion be valid.
In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
Assalāmu ῾alaykum wa Rahmatullāhi Wabarakātu
His conversion will be valid.
And Allāh Ta῾āla Knows Best
