Imam Jaafar Al-Sadiq says: “say not, ‘this is Ramadan’ and ‘Ramadan has departed’ and ‘Ramadan has arrived’ for  Surely, Ramadan is one of the names of Allah, the Mighty, Glorious, who neither arrives nor departs.”
“Fasting During Ramadan”
Fasting (or Sawm) is one of the most important acts of worship in Islam, which is literally defined as to abstain "completely" from foods, drinks, etc., before the break of the dawn till sunset, during the entire month of Ramadan, the ninth month of the Islamic year.It's an obligatory task for every Muslim to fast all days of Ramadan, except the ones with accepted excuses such as not being able to fast because of some illness or pregnancy, or being on travel. Beside not eating and drinking, there are also some others necessities for a true fasting, such as abstention from sins.
Imam Hassan Al-Moujtaba(A.S):
You should know that God has not created you for no reason and that has
not left you to your own . He has determined your life time and divided your
sustenance among you so that every wise man know his share and understand what-
ever he recieves has been predestined and that he would not receive that which
does not belong to him . God has provided you with sufficient in come to
have enough time to worship and thank Him . He made rememberance and prayer
obligatory and recommended you to be pious to gain his utmost satisfaction .
His Ethics Imam Hassan (a.s.)'s ethics were excellent examples for people. So everyone respected him. Everyone loved him when he associated with him. When his friend or his enemy heard him talking or delivering a speech, he was sorry that he (Imam Hassan(a.s.)) would end his talking or his speech.

Although Imam Hassan(a.s.) had a high social rank, he was kind to people. One day he passed by poor persons. The poor persons were sitting on the ground. There were pieces of bread before them. They were picking up the pieces of bread and eating them. When they saw Imam Hassan(a.s.) they said to him: "Son of the Apostle of Allah, come to lunch!" So he dismounted his camel and said: "Indeed, Allah does not love the proud." He began eating with them. Then he invited them and gave them food and clothes.
