Ramadan is the month of discipline, self-control, patience, and good behavior. In Ramadan, Muslims are expected to gain the fruits of Fasting, namely, piety and consciousness of Allah. In this context, (Allah, Most High, says in the Glorious Qur'an, “O ye who believe! Fasting is prescribed for you, even as it was prescribed for those before you, that ye may ward off evil.” (Al-Baqarah 2:  183)
