Re-memorizing the Qur'an after forgetting it

Q 2: I am 23 years old. When I was 12, I joined a Qur’an school and memorized the whole Qur’an, (Part No. 4; Page No. 100) but I have forgotten most of it now, except around four Juz’s (a Juz’ equals a 30th of the Qur’an). Am I sinful? I am now trying to memorize it again, but I am finding it difficult. What should I do, should I memorize it all again and will I be called to account for what I have forgotten?


A: We advise you to memorize it again, and recite it regularly and act according to it. We hope that Allah will grant you and us help and success. There is no sin in this - In sha’a-Allah (if Allah wills) - because the Hadiths regarding the punishment for those who forget some of the memorized Qur’an are all Da‘if (weak).May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
