Ruling on Interfaith marriage (Muslim and Christian)

What is the Islamic ruling concerning a Christian man marrying a Muslim woman? If they have children, what is the ruling concerning those children in Islamic law? No The marriage of a Christian man to a Muslim woman is an invalid marriage. Allah says in the Qur'an:''And give not [Muslim women] in marriage to idolaters until they believe.” (Surah al- Baqarah: 221).Therefore it is not allowed for a disbeliever to marry a Muslim woman. Allah also says,'' They the Muslim women are not lawful for them [the disbelievers] nor are they [the disbelievers] lawful for them.” (Surah al- Mumtahana:10)If he does marry her the marriage is invalid. The children are the children of fornication. They are to be given to the mother and ascribed to her alone. Source: Shaykh `Abdul-`Azeez Bin BazIslamic Fatawa Regarding Women - Darussalam Pg. 172-173
