Swear on the Quran

Q:

They had questionee about a bridal fashion show I had done which I understand is Haram. However i was completely covered, I lied about when I had done it and that it was before I’d met this person. But I was asked to swear on the Quran and I said I swear , and now I’m only 20 I don’t know what to do where to go I used to thank Allah for protecting me from all the major sins but I’ve done this to myself and now everywhere I’ve read says I’m destined for hell. JazakAllah for ur help

Waalykum salam 

 
Thank you for your Question 
 
While honesty is the best policy for the rest of your life, and that is what you should have ideally done, also because it was done in the past, your swearing has no such significance. 
Swearing has conditions and they should be abide by to have the effect. 
 
Pls keep in mind that I’m not trying to undermine your action and that it’s ok for a person to keep on doing this, nothing by passes Allah’s surveillance and you should be very very careful of your actions. 
 
I hope you never opt to lie again as that may release the loss of humans in your life but you’re dragging yours and Allah’s relation the middle for no good reason.
 
Kind regards
