Zawaaj ul-Muslim min Ghair Ahl ul-Kitaab - Men marrying women not Muslim or people of the book
You must know that it is forbidden to marry a non-Muslim female (except Ahl al-Kitaab - The People of the Book i.e. Jews and Christians). Allah says,
“Today, all the good things of life have been made lawful to you. And the food of those who have been vouchsafed revelation aforetime is lawful to you, and your food is lawful to them. And [lawful to you are], in wedlock, women from among those who believe [in this divine writ], and, in wedlock, women from among those who have been vouchsafed revelation before your time -provided that you give them their dowers, taking them in honest wedlock, not in fornication, nor as secret love-companions. But as for him who rejects belief [in Allah] - in vain will be all his works: for in the life to come he shall be among the lost...” al-Qur’an, Surah al-Maa’idah, 5: 5
“And do not marry women who are Mushrik unless they believe for any believing bondwoman [of Allah] is certainly better than a woman who ascribes divinity to aught beside Allah, even though she pleases you greatly. And do not give your women in marriage to men who are Mushrik unless they believe for- any believing bondman [of Allah] is certainly better than a man who ascribes divinity to aught beside Allah, even though he please you greatly. [Such as] these invite unto the fire, whereas Allah invites unto paradise, and unto [the achievement of] forgiveness by His leave; and He makes clear His messages unto mankind, so that they might bear them in mind.” al-Qur’an, Surah al-Baqarah, 2: 221
