Why do Muslims fast in Ramadan?

A measure of asceticism is necessary to fully enjoy the harvest from the senses superfluous impression. Thus, a certain restraint from the material that balances the senses and opens the soul for a spiritual life is necessary. Such restraint is the fasting that is obligatory for Muslims during Ramadan. During Lent abstinence directed against the carnal soul as the Qur'an calls the al-nafs al-Ammarah. During Lent tamed this aspect of the soul through a planned compliance of these trends before God. Here the sensuous soul's longing go unanswered when the fasting reminded that his firm is for the pleasure of God. It is therefore important that a Muslim is not only abstaining from food and drink while fasting in Ramadan month, but also from other carnal desires. During Lent, the benefits taken for granted in the rest of the year, a ni'mah or gift from heaven. In Ramadan month, via Fasting, Muslims gets a shield of purity against worldly passions. As a Muslim by fasting choosing God's side of the materialistic world.
