To fulfill the commands of God Almighty during fasting, every Muslim is obligated to give up on many halal things, e.g. eating, drinking and intercourse which are some of the greatest pleasures of human life.

Muslim and his social responsibilities
Ramadan is the month of social service and welfare of poor people. We can facilitate widows, orphans, handicapped and refugees in an organized manner which is the essence of Ramadan. These less fortunate people are always seeking financial and moral support from their rich Muslim brothers and sisters. Spreading hope and changing their lives with positive actions and support is the most noble thing to do in the month of Ramadan.
Similarly, spreading knowledge and awareness about Islam is another major responsibility of a common Muslim, including both men and women. Different Muslims serve this cause in different ways, e.g. some of them spread Islamic knowledge through religious debates and some develop programs related to audio Quran online formats. The sincere efforts of a Muslim can help him to get close to his God through worship and social welfare.
The sacred month of Ramadan is an opening to allow ourselves to get back to the path set by God Almighty and to be blessed by Him.
