It's also one of the Five Pillars of Islam, which are five principles which Muslims believe are compulsory acts ordered by God.

Fasting is considered to be an act of worship, which enables Muslims to feel closer to God and strengthen their spiritual health and self-discipline.

In addition to fasting during Ramadan, Muslims are focused on charity, another of the five pillars of Islam.  Ramadan ends with a three-day holiday called Eid al-Fitr, which includes feasts, gift exchanges and celebrations.
