How should the expression "is not (one) of us" mentioned in some hadiths be understood? For instance, "He who cheats us is not one of us." "He who sleeps on a full stomach while his neighbor is hungry is not one of us."
- How should we understand the Prophet's warning those who do negative things by saying 'is not one of us'? - How can we stay in the holy circle of the Prophet constantly? Are those who leave that holy circle accepted there again?

Dear Brother / Sister,
The reason why the expression "is not one of us" is used for those who commit the wrong things mentioned in the hadiths is to explain that the necessary acts for real belief and Islam are not done. That is, this wrong deed is not the way that Islam approves. It does not mean that those who commit these deeds "exit the religion of Islam".
Even if a person exits the religion of Islam, the door of repentance is open for him.
