The fly ash cement is good cement and your problem not related to fly ash or Portland cement used.
If you found the mortar not take strength after seven days many reasons behind it
1- If cement old than 3 month its life expired and if old than 1 month reduce life
2- if mortar used after 3 hours of mixing the water the setting of cement started in case of fly ash and in case of Portland it is 30 minutes.
3- You mix excess sand and less cement in mortar
4- If climate is much cold or much hot but i feel it is not your case

may be it is not cement, which is falling down like dust. it may be salt of water. have you used hard water during construction. salty or hard water create a layer (like pathces) of powder on the wall surface.

That is because of salty water.
