As an Atheist I can understand why she wouldn't want her children to be Muslim-they should have the freedom to choose what religion they wish to join rather than forced to be in one from birth, not to mention that the concept of religion is all bullshyet anyways (that's my opinion). Choose your girlfriend or your religion; we can't do it for you. Personally I would choose my gf.

People choose their own religion based on their personal faith in God, not their parents.
Islam is one of the few religions that is totally clear about this "no compulsion in religion".
If you decide to marry your girlfriend, you can teach any children you have about your religion and they can make their own decision about their religious beliefs.

I believe in interfaith marriage, I was born as a result of one.
If I have children I will teach them what all the abrahamic religions, hinduism, sikhism and many other religions believe.
I don't expect any future children to automatically share my religious beliefs.
Just as I don't expect anyone else to automatically share my political beliefs or favourite foods.
My parents have very different beliefs about religion; my father is militant atheist and my mother from an ultra-traditionalist catholic family.
