Q: An old woman who is not in her correct state of mind, meaning she is unable to make proper decisions herself, now needs to move out of her home, to live with one of her children. Her own home needs to be packed up and sorted out. Is it permissible to distribute her things among the children or what is the correct way of handling her possessions?
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
