Halal is a word commonly used in Mauritius and elsewhere to describe what is lawful, whether money or food. For a food to be halal it CANNOT contain pork, is not blood (except from liver), does not come from a strangled to death animal, cannot contain alcohol and other intoxicants. Halal is the literal contrary of Haram meaning which is unlawful by islamic laws. What is unlawful to eat for muslims is contained in the Quran (The muslims' holy book).

The chronicles of a Mauritian Dream, As an student of the post independence Mauritius, we have been formed and trained to write essays and stories to show our interpretation of facts, creativity or simple knowledge of using words and being made able to express ourselves.
