What Islam teaches about muslimas marrying nonmuslims

And give not (your daughters) in marriage to Al-Mushrikun ** till they believe in Allah alone and verily a believing slave is better than a (free) Mushrik, even though he pleases you….[2:221] .
(** Al-Mushrikun=>Pagans, idolators, polytheist and disbelievers in
the oneness of allah and muhammad)

Islam considers the husband head-of-the-family. Thus a Muslima cannot marry a non-Muslim because she will be under the authority of a non-muslim husband. This is considered especially bad because as the head of the house, he may prevent her from carrying out her religious obligations which would be his right as the husband. But it is not the sole reason for imposing the restriction. Due to the very probable falling away from islam in this situation, it is considered to be very damaging for the woman who is considered to be unable to follow islam afterwards properly leading to apostacy. The children of this union are considered muslim as are all children born to a muslim parent of either sex, but they also are assumed to be taught less than full islam leading to apostacy. There are NO conditions (except stealth jihad) under which a Muslim woman IS allowed to get married or remain married to a non-Muslim husband after she has accepted Islam. Therefore, even if she has freedom to practise Islam after marriage, she is NOT allowed to enter into an inter-faith marriage. She is considered to be living in adultery because the marriage is not valid under islamic law.
