Merits of Ramadan and Fasting in Ramadan

10. Abu Huraira reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said: Allah Almighty said, “All of the deeds of the children of Adam are for them, except fasting which is for me and I will reward it.” The Prophet said further, “Fasting is a shield. If one of you is fasting, he should avoid intimate relations with his wife and arguments. If somebody should fight or argue with him, he should say: I am fasting. By him in whose hand is my soul, the unpleasant smell coming from the mouth of a fasting person is better to Allah than the smell of musk. There are two pleasures for the fasting person, one at the time of breaking his fast and the other when he meets his Lord, for then he will be pleased by his fasting.”

In another narration, the Prophet said, “Every deed of the son of Adam is multiplied from ten to seven hundred times. Allah the Exalted says: Except for fasting, as it is done for my sake and I will reward it.”

And in another narration, the Prophet said, “Allah says: He has left his food, drink, and desires for my sake. The fast is for me, so I will reward him for it and the reward of good deeds is multiplied by ten like it.”
