Bismillah, Assalam o Alekum.
I have heard from some people that eating meat is compulsory in Islam. They mention a hadis , whose exact words I can't recall but its meaning is , that if one has not eaten meat for a particular period of days(may be weeks or months), then he must buy and eat meat , even if he has to take a debt to buy that meat. People also say that those who never eat meat disbelief.
What I recently read on an Islamic website is this that being vegetarian is totally allowed in Islam, and meat consumption is not compulsory.
I am confused over this. Is the hadis fabricated, because although I have heard it from people, I have never heard it from a scholar. Please explain this . Thank you.
