Some of them are: To each of these questions there are clear and obvious answers, and I have answered all of them at some point on our sister website, But I’ll try Insha’Allah to put together a comprehensive article on the subject.
Let me also point out that Muslim men must think very carefully about marrying non-Muslim women, and make sure that what they are doing is not haram. For more about that, see Muslim Men in the West Should Think Carefully Before Marrying Outside the Faith.

Do we believe in the Quran as the revelation of Allah?
Do we believe in the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) as the final Messenger?
There are many questions that are asked by those who wish to challenge the rules of Islam regarding marriage to non-Muslim men.
It is obvious that Islam made it impermissible for a Muslim woman to marry a non-Muslim with aim of keeping her away from things that may jeopardize her faith. To achieve this goal, it prohibits a Muslim from being involved in something that represents a threat to his religion.
A Muslim woman will not feel that her religion is secure while being with a Jewish or a Christian husband especially as the majority of the People of the Book do not show due respect to our Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him). And if thou shouldst follow their desires after the knowledge which hath come unto thee, then wouldst thou have from Allah no protecting friend nor helper.” (Al-Baqarah: 120) Given the fact that the husband is generally the head of the household, it’s not far-fetched for a non-Muslim husband to prevent his Muslim wife from performing some Islamic rituals which may seem a nuisance to him, for example fasting, or even refraining from marital relations during the fast.
As a matter of faith, you cannot become a Muslim unless you accept everything when it is ordained by Allah or carried out by his Messenger. Put not yourselves forward before Allah and His Messenger…” (Al-Hujurat: ) If you ask about the benefits of not marrying a non-Muslim, we can count you many reasons. He will persecute his Muslim wife in many dos and don’ts. Moreover, marriage is an institution for elevating our levels of having a good Islamic life. If a woman is married to a non-Muslim, maybe the only thing she will accomplish in her marital life is what is good for livestock.” Shedding more light on the question, we’d like to cite the words of the eminent Muslim scholar, Sheik Yusuf Al-Qaradawi, in his well-known book, The Lawful and the Prohibited in Islam: “It is haram for a Muslim woman to marry a non-Muslim man, regardless of whether he is of the People of the Book or not.
We have already mentioned the saying of Allah, “…and do not marry (your girls) to idolaters until they believe…” (Al-Mumtahanah: 10) No text exists which makes exceptions for the People of the Book.
