Deceit And Cheating

I want to ask a question regarding a ḥadīth, which reads "The one who deceives us is not among us". Does it mean that if a Muslim deceives another Muslim then he shall be away from the people of Islam?

Betrayal

I was engaged to someone. Later on he told me that he wanted to marry me just because I was a nice practicing Muslim girl. He lied to me, cheated on me, broke my heart and left me alone. I feel so cheated and betrayed. His betrayal is killing me every second. I feel so deceived. I am in so much pain. I am praying so much to Allah so that He will set me free from this pain and sorrow. Is there any special dua to remove pain and sorrow which would harden my heart? I feel so deceived. I can’t take this suffering anymore.

Dealing With A Husband Who Cheated

I hope this finds you well in spirit and in health. My question is a bit compplex and I apologize if it is hard to follow. I have been married for almost eleven months. I love my husband very much. But he lied to me about a major issue. When we married he assured me that he was divorced. Soon after the marraige he told me that in fact he wasn’t divorced and that she is living with his kids in his country. I am an American woman and I grew up christian. I know that it is halal for a muslim man to have up to 4 wives, however I have always known that I just couldn’t handle that situation for myself. I cannot share my man. I do not know what this means about me; I dont know if it makes me weak. I simply know that it is killing me inside. I LOVE ALLAH and I love my deen. I want to be as pious as possible. I pray about this all the time. BUT it is not getting better, infact it is getting worse. I dont know if I should stay in the marriage. Please help me.

The money he receives is by telling the state that he cannot find work or informs the state that he cannot work due to medical reason, but on the other hand he is running a business and working without informing the state. My question follows: Can he perform Hajj with the money he receives from the state?
