From the Book:
Compatibility in marriage involves three aspects: Compatibility in terms of religion, which is divided into two: difference in terms of religion (i.e., belief and disbelief), and difference in terms of religious commitment (i.e., disobedience and obedience). Compatibility in terms of religion is very essential. According to the consensus of Muslim jurists and the dictate of textual evidence, a Muslim woman is not allowed to marry a disbelieving man:
“then, if you ascertain that they are true believers, send them not back to the disbelievers. They are not lawful (wives) for the disbelievers nor are the disbelievers lawful (husbands) for them.” [Sūrah Al-Mumtaḥinah (60):10]
This is because she is superior to him [on the merit of her belief in Islām]. An exception is made when a Muslim man is allowed to marry a woman from the People of the Book because the husband here is superior to the woman. The Qur'anic text states that it is lawful for a believing man to marry a woman from the People of the book.
