If there is an epidemic of diseases, then we go from one taqdeer to another, just like Sayidina Umar رضي الله عنه did. [/quote]
And our ulemah taught us that when there is epidemic it is haram to eat meat. And regarding taqdeer and tawakkul, I take guidance from sermons by Mufti Taqi Uthmani DB.
[quote]We also don't make something that is permitted for us to be haram, just like when the prophet
said he wouldn'te at honey again and was corrected.
