  1. Assalamu'alaikum brother,

    Your question is not clear. Are you asking what is the expiation for breaking an oath (a promise)? Have you sworn not to do something but have done it? Or have you sworn to do or not to do something but you did not intend that way?

    Please clarify.

    • Wa Alaikum as Salam,

      First of all, friends that take you away from Allah are worst friends. You must not be accompanying them. Whether Ramadan or not, dance is supposedly immoral and you must abstain from it. But you have been harsh on yourself. You can in sha Allah make tawbah for swearing in such way and cancel/dissolve this oath, not because you will dance again, but because this act does not take you out of the fold of Islam. But if you do not cancel the oath, Allah Knows Best, it may hold, and may Allah Protect your Imaan.

      Why I said you can cancel your oath is this incident:

      A wife of Rasoolullah Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam gave him some honey to drink. He drank it and went to another wife's home. She complined there was a stink. He Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam then said he had consumed honey and swore never to drink honey again. Allah then Revealed:

      يَا أَيُّهَا النَّبِيُّ لِمَ تُحَرِّمُ مَا أَحَلَّ اللَّهُ لَكَ ۖ تَبْتَغِي مَرْضَاتَ أَزْوَاجِكَ ۚ وَاللَّهُ غَفُورٌ رَحِيمٌ
      O Prophet, why do you prohibit [yourself from] what Allah has made lawful for you, seeking the approval of your wives? And Allah is Forgiving and Merciful.
      قَدْ فَرَضَ اللَّهُ لَكُمْ تَحِلَّةَ أَيْمَانِكُمْ ۚ وَاللَّهُ مَوْلَاكُمْ ۖ وَهُوَ الْعَلِيمُ الْحَكِيمُ
      Allah has already ordained for you [Muslims] the dissolution of your oaths. And Allah is your protector, and He is the Knowing, the Wise.
      (at Tahrim:1-2)

      This is my personal interpretation and not a fatwa from a scholar so please take heed.
