Rav Shlomo Zalman Auerbach - A Miscarriage Of Tamim

An Avreich told Rav Shlomo Zalman Auerbach (Aleihu Lo Yibol OC 396) that his wife suffered here second straight miscarriage and he gave the fetus over to pathology to see why this keeps happening.

Rav Shlomo Zalman told him that he must request the fetus back from pathology and bury it and that something like this should have been asked to a Rav. The Avreich told Rav Shlomo Zalman that his wife has many theories why this was happening to her. Rav Shlomo Zalman said that for things like that need to go to a "Rebbe" but the rule is "Tamim Tihiyeh Im Hashem", we must go innocently with Hashem without asking questions.

Rav Shlomo Zalman added that when it comes to fulfilling Temimus in Sefiras HaOmer people are very careful, despite that this is only hinted in the pasuk. Yet when it comes to a straight forward commandment of "Tamim Tihiyeh" people are less careful.
