    It's okay you can pick it up again :insha:. Just acknowledge what's gone wrong and then make a start. Don't go overboard or do too much. Start small and keep at it forever :insha:. When things in life her a bit sticky then you may reduce things if necessary but keep going even with a small amount. Start with going over your revision to kick back your memory and then when comfortable again you can get started.
    Don't say you forgot, ever.

    This depends on the individual. Set yourself a target, a goal and work towards it. You gotta find your own flow and also make dua for yourself. I don't know of many people who started with the longer Surahs, most start from juzz Amma and then do a few more juzz from the back (about 3) and then start with Al Baqarah etc.

    Please don't forget me in your Duas.

    Yes what Bismil said is true. Just start revising it and it will come to your mind Inshallah. Bit by bit you will recover it.

    Brother , well done. Those two are the two biggest chapters in Quran.

    Not easy to remember that. :up:

    For those who missed it and in case it was missed

    http://www.ummah.com/forum/showthrea...of-its-Bearers

    Abū Sa„īd narrated that the Messenger of Allah said, “The Lord says, „Whoever is so preoccupied with the Qur‟ān and My remembrance that he is kept away from asking of Me, I will grant him better than that which I give to those who do ask of Me.‟ And the superiority of the speech of Allah over all other speech is like the superiority of Allah over His creation

    My favourite ^^^

    And as you mention, the key aspect is realizing that a blessing such as having the Qur'an memorized, is from Allah Ta'ala and not from our own doing. Alhamdulillah.
    It's actually something mentioned quite clearly in a hadith:

    عَنْ أَنَسِ بْنِ مَالِكٍ قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ
    عُرِضَتْ عَلَيَّ أُجُورُ أُمَّتِي حَتَّى الْقَذَاةُ يُخْرِجُهَا الرَّجُلُ مِنْ الْمَسْجِدِ وَعُرِضَتْ عَلَيَّ ذُنُوبُ أُمَّتِي فَلَمْ أَرَ ذَنْبًا أَعْظَمَ مِنْ سُورَةٍ مِنْ الْقُرْآنِ أَوْ آيَةٍ أُوتِيهَا رَجُلٌ ثُمَّ نَسِيَهَا

    Anas ibn Mālik narrated that the Messenger of Allah :saw: said, ummah were displayed to me, to such an extent that even [the reward of] a man removing a speck [of dust or dirt] from the masjid [was shown to me]; and all the sins of my ummah were displayed to me, and I did not see any sin greater than that of a man who is granted [the memorisation of] a sūrah or āyah

    (Sunan Tirmidhī
    وَإِنَّمَا قَالَ أُوتِيَهَا دُونَ حِفْظِهَا إِشْعَارًا بِأَنَّهَا كَانَتْ نِعْمَةً جَسِيمَةً أَوْلَاهَا اللَّهُ لِيَشْكُرَهَا فَلَمَّا نَسِيَهَا فَقَدْ كَفَرَ تِلْكَ النِّعْمَةَ

    "And he only said, 'He was granted it' rather than 'He memorised it', indicating that it is a great blessing that Allah conferred upon him, and when he forgot it, he certainly was ungrateful for that blessing."

    I believe everyone should know.

    It's something I spoke about with some of the students at the school I'm at, and something I disagreed with them about. I asked the class whom of them were hafiz, and none of them wanted to say that they were, even though there were some huffaz in the class. When I asked them why no one responded when I had asked, eventually it came out that out of humility they didn't want people to know of that. I told them that was the wrong attitude to have. Being a hafizul Qur'an is not something that a person achieves out of his efforts and striving, although it may seem as such to him. It's a blessing from Allah ta'ala that He grants to whomever of His slaves He wishes. So it's a favour that He has granted you - it's not an achievement on your part. And that being the case, then hiding it from people is not a praiseworthy act of humility but rather a blameworthy act of concealing the blessings of Allah ta'ala, as He has said concerning His favours:

    وَأَمَّا بِنِعْمَةِ رَبِّكَ فَحَدِّثْ

    And as for the blessing of your Lord, speak out!

    (Surah Duha: 11)

    This is just my opinion on the matter. And Allah ta'ala knows best.

    Mashallah you hifzed surah al-baqara and the next one. You should just read them again and keep them memorized.
