They took the money to move to New Zealand from India last year to be able to do a master's degree in agribusiness management. He had taken the job by arranging shelves at the local supermarket to pay the bills.
When Alibaba finished, they hoped they would get a high paid job and live and work in New Zealand before returning home.
The mass shootings on Friday in two mosques in central Christchurch changed everything.
His friend, Rendezhu George, sits beside him, filling the gaps when Nazar struggles to talk. Annie Alibaba was hoping to get a paid job in Christchurch after her graduation. "data-src-mini =" // cdn.cnn.com/cnnnext/dam/assets/1903181
Seconds later, a series of strikes from the Staccato Weapon with a powerful weapon sent 300 people to the mosque to board the exit.
Nazer says he was near an emergency door and escaped after someone broke the glass. Others were not happy. "People started falling over me, I saw people with blood on their shirts," he says.
He ran to a neighboring house and called the police for help before returning to the mosque to find his wife.
The scene he faced was terrible.
The bodies were scattered in the street to blood. Many people were injured. Then he saw the still figure of his wife lying face down the street.
"I ran to her, and then a policeman stopped me and told me to move somewhere else," he says.
Only on Saturday night, more than 24 hours after escaping from the mosque, the police confirmed that Alibaba was one of the 50 people killed in Friday's assaults. the police have handed over other families, a list of people who have confirmed death. Until then, he said, like many other relatives, they were clinging to the senseless hope that there might have been a mistake. "Perhaps this is one of those miracles that could happen," says George.
Nazar and Alicba had a married couple two years ago, but friends say they have no doubt that the couple soon falls in love deeply
"She really loves her husband and her husband really loves her," says Talli Ao, a friend from Lincoln University who says he has become a good friend with "the best friend" with Alibaba during the research together.
"I see when they came to New Zealand … I can see how they find themselves, and they really like it," he adds.
Alibaba completed her master's degree three weeks ago after last summer completed a further study to finish earlier than her classmates. Ao says Alibaba is the brightest student in her class. "Her professors all loved her," Ao says. "She was so smart. Although she did not like doing tasks, she was very good at it. "
On Monday, the students and staff at the university bowed their head to the grass for a minute's silence in memory of the dead.
"For some of our family's victims to be attacked because of their religion is unthinkable," Executive Chancellor Bruce Mackenzie said.
Kerala Municipality in Christchurch tightened around Nasser to help him in the coming days and months. Nazer wants to return his wife's body back to Kerala to come home with his family.
