Imaam Maalik (rahimahullah) once mentioned, “People’s memory and retention has become weak (that they cannot remember the Ahaadith of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) and quote them accurately).

I would go to Hazrat Sa‘eed bin Musayyib, Hazrat ‘Urwah, Hazrat Qaasim, Hazrat Abu Salamah, Hazrat Humaid, Hazrat Saalim (rahimahumullah) and many other Muhadditheen. I would go to them and listen to them narrate Ahaadith. I would hear each one of them narrate between fifty to a hundred Ahaadith at a time. I would then return from them while I had memorized all the Ahaadith they had narrated to me without mixing and confusing the Ahaadith of each Ustaaz.

Imaam Maalik (rahimahullah) also mentioned, “People’s memory has weakened (that after memorizing things, they forget it). I never memorized something and thereafter forgot it.”

(Ad-Deebaaj-ul-Muzahhab 1/100)
