Fasting is made obligatory for us during Ramadan, and from the below verse it is clear, Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w)'s ummah is not the first to fast..
Oh you who believe! Fasting is prescribed to you as it was prescribed to those before you, that you many learn piety and righteousness" (Q 2:183)
The speciality of Ramadan is that, it was in this month, that Quran was revealed (the first revealtion).
"Indeed We have revealed it (Qur'an) in the night of Power. And what will explain to you what the night of Power is? The night of Power is better than a thousand months. Therein descends the Angels and the Spirit (Jibreel) by Allah's permission, on every errand: (they say) "Peace" (continuously) till the rise of Morning!" (Q 97:1-5)
We sent it (this Qur'an) down on a blessed Night. Verily, We are ever warning (mankind of Our Torment). Therein (that Night) is decreed every matter of ordainment. Amran (i.e. a command or this Qur'an or His Decree of every matter) from Us. Verily, We are ever sending (the Messenger). (As) a Mercy from your Lord. Verily! He is the All-Hearer, the All-Knower." (Ad-Dukhaan 44: 3-6)
As said in the above verse, that night (when the first revealtion took place in mount Hira) is known as laylatul qadir. The night holds many virtues, and it is when Allah(swt) rewrites the fate of a person. So it is highly recommended to pray all night, during this night. And this night is any one night during the last ten odd nights of the month of Ramadan. (i.e 21st night, 23rd night etc..) Also remember sis, according to Islamic calender, nights come first and days next. So we reach the 21st night first, and then fast the 21st fast during the day (idk hope I didnt confuse you).
But since the month of Ramadan in itself is full of virtues and blessings from Allah(swt).. It is fardh to fast during the day and sunnah to pray during the nights. Also umra done during Ramadan is equivalent to a Hajj done with Prophet(s.a.w) himself..
During the day when one is fasting, one has to observe all the required obligations (like salaah) but people usually do extra or voluntry prayers, and a lot of dhikr, and also indulging in sexual intercourse breaks the fast.
The Messenger of Allah (saw) said, "When the month of Ramadan starts, the gates of the heaven are opened and the gates of Hell are closed and the devils are chained." (Imam Bukhari)
Narrated Abu Huraira(r.a): The Messenger of Allah (saw) said:"... whoever fasts during Ramadan out of sincere faith and hoping to attain Allah's rewards, then all his past sins will be forgiven." (Imam Bukhari).
Prophet (s.a.w) said, Every action of the son of Adam is given manifold reward, each good deed receiving then times its like, up to seven hundred times. Allah the Most High said, 'Except for fasting, for it is for Me and I will give recompense for it, he leaves off his desires and his food for Me.' for the fasting person there are two times of joy; a time when he breaks his fast and a time of joy when he meets his Lord, and the smell coming from the mouth of the fasting person is better with Allah than the smell of musk." [Imam Bukhari]
Hence for every single good deed we do, the rewards are multiplied during Ramadan, unlike in regular days.
The Messenger of Allah (saw) addressed his companions on the last day of Sha`ban, saying, "Oh people! A great month has come over you; a blessed month; a month in which is a night better than a thousand months; month in which Allah has made it compulsory upon you to fast by day, and voluntary to pray by night. Whoever draws nearer (to Allah) by performing any of the (optional) good deeds in (this month) shall receive the same reward as performing an obligatory deed at any other time, and whoever discharges an obligatory deed in (this month) shall receive the reward of performing seventy obligations at any other time. It is the month of patience, and the reward of patience is Heaven. It is the month of charity, and a month in which a believer's sustenance is increased. Whoever gives food to a fasting person to break his fast, shall have his sins forgiven, and he will be saved from the Fire of Hell, and he shall have the same reward as the fasting person, without his reward being diminished at all." [Narrated by Ibn Khuzaymah]
