Is the Justice of Allah (SWT) valid for only Muslims or valid for non-Muslims, too?

Dear Brother / Sister,
The justice of Allah (SWT) is valid for all people whether they are Muslims or Non-Muslims. Allah forbids cruel attitude and injustice for all regardless of their religion. Does Allah, who Himself consider the cruelty haram, oppress anyone?
Whoever works righteousness benefits his own soul; whoever works evil, it is against his own soul: nor is thy Lord ever unjust (in the least) to His servants. (Fussilat, 41/46)
The expression of the verse which means “nor is thy Lord ever unjust” emphasizes that there will be a just approach to all and there will be no oppression to anyone regardless of his/her religion.
There are lots of verses on this subject. Most particularly, the interpretation of a verse that addresses directly unbelievers is as follows:
(Disdainfully) bending his side, in order to (lead men) astray from the Path of Allah; for him there is disgrace in this life, and on the Day of Judgment we shall make him taste the Penalty of burning (Fire).
(It will be said): "This is because of the deeds which thy hands sent forth, for verily Allah is not unjust to His servants.” (Al-Hajj, 9-10).
Then shall anyone who has done an atom's weight of good, see it! And anyone who has done an atom's weight of evil, shall see it. (Al-Zalzala, 99/7-8)
The verse informs us that no deed, minor or major either good or bad will be wasted but recompensed definitely.
“An Atom” is a particle as small as an ant, which can only be distinguished in the sunlight. The purpose of this expression is to inform about the smallest thing that interest humans and the lowest limit of the responsibility for man. The main aim is to explain that not even the tiniest good or bad deed will be lost in the presence of Allah
