Meet Kandra, Adnan Syed Wife
Adnan Syed, the ex-boyfriend of Hae Min Lee, was found guilty and charged with first degree. Former’s longtime friend Rabia Chaudry who penned a book on his Adnan, later confirmed that he got married to his wife Kandra while serving a life sentence for murder.
Kandra was allegedly the daughter of one of the fellow inmates of Adnan. They met each other first at Jessup.
Rabia also shed some light on their marriage in her book where she stated that Adnan saved up $10,000 “dowry” in eight years doing odd jobs.
Throughout their marriage, Adnan was in Jessup.
The marriage of Adnan was reportedly not done on paper but in the eye of god. It was allegedly done in front of two witnesses with spoken words that confirmed that they were now husband and wife.
It was an Islamic ceremony. Adnan was so devoted, according to Rabia, that he had to participate in this ceremony before he could even truly allow himself to entertain the thought of being in a relationship with Kandra, even though there was no opportunity for intimate contact while he was imprisoned.
In the book, Rabia wrote, “Adnan wanted to take care of her and he wanted a relationship that gave her the right to expect to be cared for. He asked if she would marry him in an Islamic ceremony, a “nikkah.” “The ceremony would be real, a legitimate marriage in Islam,” she said, “but just not on paper.”
She added, “She felt how conflicted he was, that he wanted a romantic relationship with this woman but his faith was preventing it. After thinking about it she agreed. After all, it was a verbal ceremony with two witnesses, nothing legal. It would put him at ease and not be any kind of a burden on her.”
Adnan began discussing a dowry with Kandra. “A dowry?” she asked, perplexed,” Rabia penned.
