Ramadan in Islam

Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ has given us His great kindness in the form of the fasts of Ramadan so that we could achieve religiousness and marvellous pleasure, as Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ says in Sūraĥ Baqaraĥ (part 2 verses 183-184):

یٰۤاَ یُّہَا الَّذِیۡنَ اٰمَنُوۡا کُتِبَ عَـلَیۡکُمُ الصِّیَامُ کَمَا کُتِبَ عَلَی الَّذِیۡنَ مِنۡ قَبۡلِکُمۡ لَعَلَّکُمۡ تَـتَّقُوۡنَ ﴿۱۸۳﴾ۙ اَیَّامًا مَّعۡدُوۡدٰتٍ ؕ فَمَنۡ کَانَ مِنۡکُمۡ مَّـرِ یۡضًا اَوۡ عَلٰی سَفَرٍ فَعِدَّۃٌ مِّنۡ اَیَّامٍ اُخَرَ ؕ وَ عَلَی الَّذِیۡنَ یُطِیۡقُوۡنَہٗ فِدۡیَۃٌ طَعَامُ مِسۡکِیۡنٍ ؕ فَمَنۡ تَطَوَّعَ  خَیۡرًا فَہُوَ خَیۡرٌ   لَّہٗ ؕ  وَ اَنۡ تَصُوۡمُوۡا خَیۡرٌ  لَّکُمۡ    اِنۡ  کُنۡتُمۡ  تَعۡلَمُوۡنَ   ﴿۱۸۴﴾

O those who believe! Fasting has been made obligatory upon you as were made obligatory upon those before you, so that you may become pious. The days are counted. Then whosoever among you is ill or on a journey then same number of fasting in other days, and those who have no strength, should give in fine meal to a needy: then whosoever does more good, then that is better for him, and fasting is better for you if you know.

[Kanz-ul-Īmān (Translation of Quran)] (Part 2, Sūraĥ Baqaraĥ, verses 183-184)
