My life in Australia

Islam requires all Muslims to eat halal food. (Halal means allowed) .There are rules about how animals should be slaughtered.
When I came to Australia I found it hard when I went shopping. I had to look for halal food and halal enzymes, for example when buying meat, chicken, sweets, cakes, cheese and yoghurt.
Over the years there were more and more Muslims in Australia. So they started importing and producing halal food. Now we can find our food easily in the markets.

I like living in Australia because there is a good education for my children’s future and a safe country.
