We are in this Dunya for a very short period of time. In this time we must perfect what it means to be a Muslim. After the Shahada, the second most important pillar is your five obligatory prayer, whether it is inside or outside Ramadan.
Ramadan is not just about staying away from food and water. Islam teaches us to base our actions upon rightly guided and sincere intentions. Our fasts should be out of faith and hope for reward from Allah (azza wa jall).
