A lot of Peoples were complaining on forgetting, lack remembering and  little memory. And many of them especially Students of knowledge and Arts they are trying through various ways and means seeking for remedy. And this sometime could be refer to natural things.  On the other hand can be ethical and moral issues because constant committing of Sins for example -  As being reported from noble sources- it's imposes forgetting and memory deficiency, also walking between two women as well as  laughing at grave yards among others.

He Said:  Certainly in the heart of man there empty space and on the empty space there is cover in it.   If a man recite complete salutations ( اللهم صل علی محمد وال محمد) to prophet Muhammad and his progeny it uncover that empty space and his heart will be light and he will therefore remember what he has forgotten.
