From what I understand, partially based on Yevamot 47b and Rambam Hilchot Issuray Biah end of chapter 13 and beginning of chapter 14, when a potential convert first expresses an interest in converting the court attempts to dissuade her. This is learned out from how Naomi attempted to dissuade Ruth (Ruth Chapter 1). My questions are
- If no attempt is made to dissuade her is the conversion still valid?
- Where did Naomi know to do this from? Meaning is there a source in the Torah for this concept?
