Q: My grandmother is a non-Muslim. She has dementia so she is not able to understand much at all, but if we can get her to believe in the very basics and say the shahadah, will it be accepted from her even though she forgets the next day that she is a Muslim? Please advice how we can help her accept Islam in a valid way and please make dua that she does so.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
