>the Zalimun (disbelievers in Islam and Allah)

ROTFL. Bogus Pakistani Arabic

Now here in your Arabic lesson for today:

From the root ZLM we have the word zalim or an oppressor or a tyrant. And a mazloom is he who is oppressed. al-zulama is the plural of the word zalim and we also have zulm or injustice.

So the word al-zaalimun does not mean disbelievers in Islam and Allah as you claim but it means those that are tyrants and oppressors.

Now how about the "disbelievers in Islam and Allah" thing? Well these are al-kuffar Or: al-ladhina la yusadiqu wa yankuru deen al-Islam wa Allah. But this is not what the aya says

Your above claim is bogus and you know why? Because you do not know any Arabic and your Allah does not know any Urdu!

Why do you pretend to know what the Qur'an really says when you do not? And why do you think we should listen to your drivel?

And like I say: Islam is the religion of the Hijazi Arabs and you ain't one.
