"Ramadhan is the (month) in which the Qur'an was sent down, as a guide to mankind, also clear (Signs) for guidance and judgment (Between right and wrong). So every one of you who is present (at his home) during that month should spend it in fasting."
This is the verse of Qur'an (2:185) which mandates the Muslims to fast during the month of Ramadan.
