From Wiki:Ramadan

In the Qur’an,the fasting is mentioned:

يَا أَيُّهَا ٱلَّذِينَ آمَنُواْ كُتِبَ عَلَيْكُمُ ٱلصِّيَامُ كَمَا كُتِبَ عَلَى ٱلَّذِينَ مِن قَبْلِكُمْ لَعَلَّكُمْ تَتَّقُونَ
  • O those who believe, the fasts have been enjoined upon you as were enjoined upon those before so that you be God-fearing.[Qur’an 2:183]

Ramadan (Arabic: رمضان) is the ninth month of the Islamic calendar, and the month in which the Qur’an was revealed. Ramadan is the holiest of months in the Islamic calendar.
